One of the worlds largest independent consultancies Meinhardt has announced the appointment of an additional Regional Director to strengthen its UK operations further.
Building services specialist, Lee Davies, joins Meinhardt’s expanding Birmingham office and will work alongside fellow Regional Director Jason Fox to spearhead the multidisciplinary consultancy’s investment into new regions.
Lee 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.
Enjoying a decorated career thus far, Lee’s achievements include the pioneering design development and delivery of the University of Leicester’s George Davies Centre, the UK’s largest non-domestic Passivhaus.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Davies said: “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.”
Globally headquartered in Singapore, Meinhardt was formed in Australia in 1955 by Bill Meinhardt and has been involved in the UK and international projects for more than 60 years.
Meinhardt’s UK office is located at Two Snowhill, Birmingham, and the firm have recently 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.
Mark Bryan, building services director, 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.”
