Yanchee Lau

Yanchee leads Eckersley O’Callaghan’s Hong Kong office, which he set up in 2017 after relocating from our London office.

Since then, Yanchee has grown our presence in the region, building relationships with clients and collaborators throughout Asia. He leads our involvement on projects including The Henderson, Wellington Street, and an event space at 11 Skies in Hong Kong and the Star Pavilion in Shanghai. A structural engineer by background, Yanchee believes in the value of establishing practical engineering strategies at the outset of every project that unlock the ambition of the architecture and the client’s brief.

Prior to joining Eckersley O’Callaghan in 2015, Yanchee gained over 10 years of experience working for BuroHappold and Ramboll, with positions in design management, engineering and communications. He played a key role in several challenging and complex projects, from concept through to installation on site, including the Tate Modern’s landmark Switch House Building.
