Temple was previously a technical director and brings with him specialist knowledge of healthcare, education, commercial, residential and high rise schemes.

Matt Hann, building services director for the North of England and Scotland at WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, said: “The new additions to our Manchester office add further leadership, technical excellence and specialist knowledge to the already wide-ranging expertise of our building services team. Andy Temple’s leadership combined with more senior project directors and technical experts, especially in sustainability, energy performance of buildings and the science and technology sector, will play a key role in achieving our business aims in the region.”
