Building for success with Michele

We’ve expanded our structural engineering department with the appointment of Michele Polastri.
Michele joins as part of our ongoing recruitment drive, as we continue to create jobs. We’re seeking to hire 10 new staff this year, including CAD technicians, and general practice and residential surveyors.
We are particularly keen to hear from mechanical building services engineers as we grow the business across London, Hampshire and the South.
Our continued expansion comes as we enter the next phase of our growth following a restructuring into six divisions: Building Surveying, Project Management and Contract Administration, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Architecture and General Practice.
Our Managing Director Bill McAndrew said: “Demand continues to rise for our multi-disciplinary services, including our structural engineering expertise.
“I am pleased to welcome Michele, as skilled and committed structural engineers of his calibre can be difficult to recruit. I am sure he will be a valuable addition to our expert and experienced team.”
Bill added: ‘We anticipate more appointments in 2017 to meet increased volumes of work and deliver an even greater service for clients whilst also supporting the local economy and property sector.”
The expansion of the structural engineering department comes in response to new workloads driven by large MoD projects and commercial contracts.
Structural Engineer Michele will work under director of Structural Engineering Noor Awan. Michele gained his qualifications in Italy, including an MSc.
Noor said: “The appointment represents significant expansion of our structural engineering department.
“It demonstrates the increasing importance of the department as an integral part of the firm’s multi-disciplinary services.”
We unveiled our new corporate structure and ‘Professional Solutions by Design’ strapline at the iconic Gherkin skyscraper in London in September.
Our six disciplines – Building Surveying, Project Management and Contract Administration, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Architecture and General Practice – allow us to meet individual client requirements and provide an overarching service with full end to end design solutions.
We are looking to fill junior and senior positions from professionally qualified, technically qualified and work experienced candidates.
