As MEP Technical Director, Liam Clark will take on another board level director role in the building services sector, following a 26-year career in the sector. He has worked on notable projects across London and the South East covering a variety of sectors, including residential, commercial, heritage and historic, healthcare, and ecclesiastical.

I’m looking forward to applying the knowledge and skills I’ve built over my career, to strengthen and improve our offering and ensure projects continue to be delivered efficiently, innovatively, and successfully.”

At the same time, Chris Grubb has been promoted to regional director after seven years at Meinhardt during a 30-year career in the industry – and will lead a newly created infrastructure team to deliver national and international projects across various sectors.

Meanwhile, having joined Meinhardt 18 months ago as senior associate, Sam Courtney has been promoted to associate director. He has experience across the commercial sector, including CAT A and B fit-outs, building refurbishment, and new builds.

Chris, for his continued work ethic across all Meinhardt consulting engineering disciplines, while Sam has made excellent headways within our commercial sector offering. On behalf of the board directors we look forward to seeing the team work on our diverse portfolio of individual buildings right the way through to huge international master plans.”
