Colin Bennie


With 20+ years’ professional experience, Colin brings a passion in the design and delivery of infrastructure and transport-led regeneration, both new-build and reconstruction projects, in the UK and overseas. As Director, Colin is leading JMP's transport infrastructure team.

Since joining John McAslan + Partners in 2015, projects have included New York's Penn Station, Belfast’s Grand Central and Weavers Cross masterplan as well as Sydney Central’s new northern train hall and station renewal, where Colin has helped establish a local presence for the practice and develop collaborative working.

Wider industry experience includes the design and delivery of Thameslink at St Pancras International for HS1, Farringdon West Ticket Hall design for Crossrail, as well as delivery for contractor and client-side organisations including Network Rail and London Underground in the UK, and internationally including Doha Metro’s Education City station, Chicago Union challenge team for Amtrak, and Sydney Metro Northwest’s station typology definition and co-ordination.

Recent industry engagement has included sitting on the NLA’s expert transport and infrastructure panel 2022, and jury panel for the WAN Infrastructure Awards 2016. Colin's passion for complex projects and regeneration has at its core, the reality that rail remains the most sustainable, resilient and low-emission form of land transport we have for mass capacity travel.
