International engineering consultancy expands Birmingham office

A global independent engineering consultancy that chose Birmingham as the location for its UK expansion, has announced the appointment of 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.

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. 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.

Lee 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.”
