Abigail co-founded Momentum in 2005. Her work specialises in architecturally-interesting projects, ranging from the engineering of permanent buildings and large, mixed-use development schemes, long span roofs over sports facilities and bespoke demountable structures for one-off events.


With a particular interest in finding elegant solutions to complex technical problems, Abigail’s projects allow her to explore the use of new and unusual materials to create distinctive and memorable structures.

Abigail is based at Momentum’s London office.
