Harley Haddow announces North West hires, £29m project appointment

The Manchester office of the Scottish engineering consultancy has been busy, unveiling its role in providing MEP, design, and sustainability services for the rebuilding of five Stockport fire stations.

Harley Haddow is part of the project team for Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s £29m scheme to revamp fire stations. Contractor ISG is leading the project, which calls for the rebuilding of stations in Blakley, Heywood, Whitefield, King Street, and Whitehill.

The new facilities are aiming to be net zero, with Harley Haddow helping with crafting an energy-efficient design with air source heat pumps, natural ventilation, solar panels, battery storage, and green roofs.

Harley Haddow also publicised the hiring of electrical associate director Tom Barlow and senior mechanical engineer Paul Phillips.

Barlow joins the firm from Crookes Walker Consulting, where he worked for 10 years. Barlow has more than 39 years of experience and has also worked for Hulley & Kirkwood.

Regarding his new role, Barlow said: “I am pleased to have seized the opportunity to be the latest addition to the Harley Haddow family and looking forward to help build on the fantastic work already achieved in Manchester, particularly in the low energy, carbon market.”

Appointed late last year, Phillips has more than 16 years of experience and has also worked at SI Sealy, Environmental Design Services Limited, and Capita Symonds.

Ian Chalk, director of Harley Haddow’s North West hub, said: “Harley Haddow’s expansion into Manchester last year was a hugely exciting step as we knew it was a region that had many opportunities for us, particularly with our expertise in helping assist the city with its 2038 carbon neutral target.

“Winning this succession of varied projects is testament to that, and it’s been great to reinvest in our team with the appointment of Paul, and now Tom too. We’re looking forward to keeping this momentum going with further business development and an active recruitment plan, as we continue to grow our team locally.”
