The transport team at one of the Midlands’ fastest growing engineering consultancies has more than doubled in size, adding graduate and associate level recruits to both its Ibstock and Birmingham offices.

M-EC Consulting Development Engineers has appointed Simon Prescott as an associate transport engineer, Saima Khan as transport engineer and Sarah Rotheram as graduate transport engineer. Khan has joined director Alex Bennett and associate director Neil Benison in Birmingham while Prescott and Rotheram are based at the firm’s head office in Ibstock, Leicestershire.

Alex Bennett said: “Our transport work has increased steadily over the last year, especially since we launched the Birmingham and Milton Keynes offices a year ago, and so we have been keen to expand this key division.

“These new appointments bring with them key skills which will enable us to better serve clients as the business grows”.

M-EC’s transport team provides detailed assessments, designs and audits in line with current legislation to meet the objectives of planning, highway authorities and developers.

Bennett added: “Transport is an integral part of any development, so it’s essential our work provides sustainable, realistic and comprehensive recommendations that ensure successful outcomes. With some of our current schemes representing major new, mixed use development and therefore requiring complex assessment and strategy, the timing was right to increase the team. Our new recruits have a wealth of experience and are already proving value additions to the transport division”.
