Harley Haddow opens Manchester office

Ian Chalk will lead the multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy’s first North West office.

Chalk joins Harley Haddow as a director from Hoare Lea, where he worked for nearly 20 years. Past projects for Chalk include St Michael’s in Manchester, Manchester Airport, and Liverpool Women’s Hospital. Further afield, Chalk also worked on the Doha Metro Green Line project in Qatar.

The Manchester office is located in the Core building off Brown Street. It will mark Harley Haddow’s North England debut. Founded in 1950, Harley Haddow also has offices in Edinburgh, London, Glasgow, and Fort William.

Chalk said that both he and the company have big ideas for the Manchester office.

“We’re keen to make a real positive impact to the industry in Manchester,” he said.

“There are great opportunities for us to bring our extensive expertise into the low energy, carbon market and it’s the perfect time to recruit locally and build up our North West hub.”

Jim Kellachan, a partner at Harley Haddow and technical director, said he was “delighted” to have Chalk on board.

“We pride ourselves on our director-led approach and [Chalk] is the ideal candidate to continue building on the Manchester successes and accelerate business development in the region,” Kellachan said.

“As we continue to create our dedicated regional team in the North West, we are really excited for what lies ahead for us there.”

Harley Haddow is actively recruiting consulting engineers to grow the Manchester office, in particular those who specialise in mechanical, electrical and public health, sustainability, or civil and structural.
