Engineering consultant Hydrock has appointed Dilon Hilton as a technical director in its building performance engineering team in Manchester.
With more than 15 years’ experience in the building services sector, Hilton joins from Patrick Parsons, previously Beverley Clifton Morris, prior to which he spent time with Cundall. He has also spent time on the committee of the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.
Working alongside Rich McWilliam, who established Hydrock’s BPE offering in Manchester in 2015, Hilton will be tasked with helping continue the growth of the company’s business in the North West.
Henry Easterbrook, divisional director for BPE, said: “Dilon is a fantastic addition to our business. His drive and energy, and his outstanding reputation for delivery and empathy with clients is exactly what we want from our building performance engineering team.
“Under Rich McWilliam, we’ve established our presence in Manchester, and the addition of Dilon will help us to grow our business still further across northern England, offering the commercially-focused, dynamic support and direction we are known for.”
Hilton said: “Buildings are about people. Personally, I enjoy engaging with people, and I want a nice environment to meet, to work and to socialise in with people. So, in terms of the performance of buildings, it’s about getting the energy performance and the overall design right.
“It’s simple things, but my philosophy is about early engagement to influence the design, really getting to know my clients, developing integrated design solutions with the whole design team, and identifying how to bring value to the design process.”
