NATIONAL engineering consultancy Rodgers Leask has relocated in Liverpool to a larger premises following a successful first year operating in the city and recent team expansion.
Having taken the keys to a 1,200 sq ft workspace at Helix on Edmund Street in the city centre, Rodgers Leask will be delivering more projects across the North West utilising the expertise of new head of civil engineering Peter Collier, structural technician Connor Holland and graduate structural engineer Christopher Moss.
Having been involved in regionally significant projects within the past year, such as Trident Business Park in Warrington, the appointment of Peter Collier has been made to kickstart the national consultancy’s civil engineering offering in the North West – which will complement its existing structural engineering popularity.
Peter said: “The opportunity at Rodgers Leask plays to my strengths. I’ll be bringing different disciplines together to work on projects that really make a difference to communities. Having worked for both clients and consultancies in the past, I understand the construction process and the needs of all stakeholders. This experience is something I am looking forward to sharing with the civil engineering team I will be building in our new Liverpool hub.
“Prior to joining Rodgers Leask I was with a national housebuilder, where I was working on large scale projects in the Merseyside region, so I am well prepared to navigate planning complexities and widespread industry agendas – like sustainability. Rodgers Leask’s values really resonate with me and the variety of work it is involved in is exciting for both me, my new colleagues and the North West.”
From schools to industrial units, the Rodgers Leask team in Liverpool has taken on local projects as well national, such as work on Etone College in Nuneaton and London Gateway Logistics Park in Essex.
Chris Pollett, divisional director and Liverpool office lead at Rodgers Leask, said: “It’s been a successful first year in Liverpool and busier than we honestly expected. We’ve been appointed to some interesting projects, which are varied in size, and this is perfect for our young, ambitious team with experience beyond its years. We want to continue creating new relationships and drive more repeat business, which is something we have been fortunate to benefit from across the country historically.”
Paul Spencer, managing director at Rodgers Leask, said: “Moving into a new office in Liverpool only a year after entering the city is a clear sign of progress and the quality of new recruits is proof of what a forward-thinking consultancy we are. It’s encouraging to have experienced individuals like Peter, who has worked for household names like Countryside Partnerships, choosing to join us on our journey in the North West and bringing his passion for quality, sustainable development with him.”
