Engineering consultancy expands team

A global independent engineering consultancy that chose Birmingham as the location for its UK expansion, has appointed an additional regional director to support its existing civil and structures capability. 

Building services specialist, Lee Davies, has joined Meinhardt’s expanding Birmingham office with responsibility for project delivery and the operational growth of the firm’s building services consultancy. 

He joins fellow regional director, Jason Fox, in spearheading the multidisciplinary consultancy’s investment into new regions, as it looks to capitalise on a growing workload on behalf of new and existing clients across the Midlands. 

Lee Davies is a former equity director at a Midlands-based building services consultancy, where he specialised in innovative design solutions and construction techniques. 

He brings more than two decades of industry experience to the role, having acted as lead building services consultant on a wealth of high-profile projects within the commercial, residential and education sectors on behalf of some of the UK’s largest developers. His achievements include the pioneering design development and delivery of the University of Leicester’s George Davies Centre, the UK’s largest non-domestic Passivhaus. 

“The broad range of engineering design services delivered by Meinhardt in the UK and internationally, demonstrates technical expertise that is aligned to the needs of the developing Midlands market. With this capability and the overwhelming commitment and support of the Meinhardt team, Jason and I are privileged to be leading such an exciting opportunity to expand the regional business," said Lee.

Mark Bryan, building services director for Meinhardt, said: “We took the strategic decision to locate our new office in Birmingham because of the city’s bustling property sector. The addition of a new regional director further demonstrates Meinhardt’s commitment to investing in and expanding a team that will play a significant role in shaping the future of the Midlands, through world-class developments. Lee’s commitment to sustainable building services design and experience of the local marketplace, means that he is ideally placed to work alongside Jason in facilitating the growth of our Birmingham-based business.” 

Based at Two Snowhill, Birmingham, Meinhardt is working on several significant regional projects. The company has been appointed by the Galliard Homes and Apsley House Capital partnership to provide civil and structural design consultancy services at the 14-storey Timber Yard residential development in Birmingham’s Southside development district. 

From its global headquarters in Singapore, Meinhardt has been involved in UK and international projects that have helped transform many of the world’s major cities for more than 60 years. The consultancy employs more than 4,500 technical staff from its 50 worldwide offices, providing integrated engineering services in the areas of civil, structural, building services, façade and other related engineering disciplines.
