Pick Everard has appointed a new national director to its building services engineering team.
Justin Neil will develop and grow the 90-strong team nationally, bringing his background in design and construction to bear at the property, construction and infrastructure consultancy.
The Chartered building services engineer recently held appointments in single service engineering businesses but chose to pivot to a multi-disciplinary consultancy to work on project delivery in a leadership role.
Neil got his start as an M&E apprentice in 1999, before moving into consultancy in 2006.
He holds degrees in building services engineering, electrical building services engineering and BIM and integrated design.
Neil also spent four years in Qatar working closely on its widely celebrated National Library.
“My varied career and experience abroad have given me a unique, all-round perspective that melds well with Pick Everard’s multi-disciplinary approach,” said Neil. “Having worked on all sides of the construction spectrum – for contractors, clients, and consultants – I’m ideally situated to hit the ground running and drive forward our department.”
He added: “Across the many projects I’ve worked on in my career, I’m still yet to see a wholly cohesive delivery approach done well. It’s one of the key reasons why I’m hugely excited by my new role at Pick Everard.”
Andrew Almond, partner at Pick Everard, added: “We are absolutely delighted that Justin has joined us. I can see that he will fit seamlessly into our senior management team and his talent, experience, and drive will be a real asset to Pick Everard.
“I am looking forward to working alongside Justin, collaborating closely on our objectives to develop our team and to deliver a service of excellence to our clients across the UK and beyond.”
