Nottinghamshire-based consultancy Howard Ward Associates has appointed a new Structural Engineer to its growing presence in the Midlands. Aniket Gohil arrives from ML Consulting, where he fulfilled a similar role.

Founded in 1977, multi-disciplinary civil and structural engineering consultancy, Howard Ward Associates (HWA) works across all sectors, providing civil and structural design services to projects with construction values ranging up to £20 million. While several reports have suggested that Brexit might harm the engineering sector of the UK, the opposite seems to be the case for HWA. After a period of increased demand, the Nottinghamshire-based engineering consultancy opened a new office in Nottingham’s city centre in 2018.

HWA, which has its head office on Walkers Yard in Radcliffe-on-Trent, took the space within Knight & Whitehall House on Carlton Street in the Hockley area of Nottingham. The firm’s initial team of 15 have since used the new locale to deliver on a number of projects in a range of sectors – including education, healthcare, emergency services, and commercial and residential construction engineering – enabling the firm to grow its presence in the region further.

Now, HWA has announced the appointment of Aniket Gohil in the role of Structural Engineer. His main responsibilities in the new role include undertaking structural design calculations in steel, concrete, timber and masonry and also producing engineering drawings, while co-ordinating the design of projects with clients and fellow professionals.

Gohil brings three years of engineering experience with him, having formerly plied his trade at ML Consulting, where he worked as a Graduate Structural Engineer. He holds a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in structural engineering from Kingston University and Brunel University, respectively. He is also a graduate member of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Commenting on his new challenge, Gohil said, “I have been following HWA for a while as I was very interested in the different projects they were delivering. I was really keen to work on residential and commercial projects to the scale that they were and was thrilled when I saw they were recruiting. I’m already working on one residential and two commercial new build projects and I look forward to working on more exciting projects in the future, learning from the best along the way and expanding into the different engineering and business areas within the company.”

Dan Bailey, Director at HWA, added, “Aniket has great technical knowledge and enthusiasm, having managed projects in previous roles and collaborating with clients to provide simple solutions to complex situations and coordinating structural designs. He is the perfect addition to our team and will help HWA continue to deliver excellent services for our clients. He is taking well to the larger projects that we are currently working on and we are extremely pleased that he has joined us.”
