Liverpool-based mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy Steven Hunt & Associates has appointed project manager Kevin Watts.
Watts most recently worked at Davies Partnership in Chester in a technical director capacity, following four years managing building services on a £680m waste-to-energy scheme for Keppel Seggers in Runcorn.
He will join the project management team featuring Dave Norcross and Chris Powell and will be responsible for developing client briefs into a coordinated building services strategy.
The business said that the appointment comes after a period of accelerated growth which has seen new projects across the Liverpool city region including work at Liverpool John Moores University’s library project and the University of Liverpool’s Cypress Building.
Managing director Steven Hunt said: “Kevin will bring his 40 years experience and a fresh pair of eyes and undoubted knowledge to the company.
“I am confident that he will be a great mentor for our younger engineers and play a huge role in what looks set to be an exciting year for the company.”
Watts added: “Steve’s investment in inspiring the future generation of engineers, as well as his current project portfolio means my job will be varied and exciting; and I am very much looking forward to what the future holds at Steven Hunt & Associates.”
