The Manchester-based engineering consultant has appointed Robert Henshall as a director to lead the growth of the company’s structural engineering team across the North.
Previously, Henshall was a structural director at Shepherd Gilmour Infrastructure and before that was a regional director at BWB Consulting.
Henshall will be based at Hydrock’s Princess Street offices and will join its 30-strong team in delivering geo-environment and geo-technical engineering, building services, fire and acoustic engineering, and transport services.
With his new position, Henshall will be involved in the delivery of civil and structural engineering design on two residential developments in Ancoats.
He has particular expertise in the industrial, retail, and mixed-use leisure and education sectors. He has worked on a range of schemes for LandSec including the extension of the White Rose Centre in Leeds, Kingsway Business Park near Rochdale for Wilson Bowden Developments, and has also designed fire stations built by ISG across the North West.
Henshall said on his appointment: “There is a great spirit in our Manchester office, and I’ve been warmly welcomed. I’m now looking forward to developing existing relationships and working on some exciting new schemes whilst contributing to Hydrock’s national structural engineering capability.”
