IBI Group has appointed two within its planning and regeneration team, with Mark Graham joining from international engineer and masterplanner Dar Al-Handasah, and Katie Daniels joining from Jacobs.
Graham is an associate regeneration planner, while Daniels is a planner with a specialism in infrastructure.
Both will be based in IBI's Handforth office.
Jim Fox and Paul Sheppard, studio directors in Manchester and Liverpool, said: "Our practice has the depth and breadth of skill to support our clients particularly in the areas of public land development, housing led growth, town centre regeneration and infrastructure led planning. We are now building on this established planning activity and helping to deliver successful health, education and commercial schemes."
IBI is currently advising Peel Land & Property on its £1bn Trafford Waters scheme.
