M-EC announces trio of new appointments

M-EC, the technical development consultants, has made a trio of appointments at its Leicestershire head office. The three new hires will take up roles in its Acoustic Air, Civil Engineering and Structures departments.

M-EC welcomes associate structural engineer, Lance Poole to its Structures department. Lance’s broad-based engineering experience spans more than 40 years, both in the United Kingdom and South Africa.

Prior to joining M-EC, Lance worked with consulting engineering firms and design/build contractors on many new build and refurbishment projects for industrial, commercial, educational and domestic buildings. To date he has mainly worked as the lead structural engineer and managed design teams for larger projects.

Lance brings broad built environment expertise to M-EC and a wealth of experience in structural steelwork, in-situ and pre-cast reinforced concrete, masonry and timber structures. He also has experience in the design of temporary works/heavy lifting schemes and the design of building facades formed in stone, masonry and pre-cast concrete. In his free time, he is a big music fan and enjoys singing and playing the guitar. Moving to the East Midlands, he is keen on taking up walking too.

Adam Walker

Acoustic consultant, Adam Walker, joins M-EC’s Acoustic Air department from his previous role as an acoustics engineer at a global engineering consultancy, where he worked on a variety of projects. With a degree in Music Technology from De Montfort University, before moving into engineering, Adam spent five years travelling the world as an audio systems engineer with a range of different bands. A keen triathlete, Adam has already joined the M-EC team in a recent 5K run.

Civil engineering technician, James Brant, comes to M-EC with six years infrastructure and design experience across a number of civil technician and engineering roles. James joins M-EC’s Civil Engineering department as a specialist in works/private drainage design.

Alex Bennett, director of M-EC, said: “It is an exciting time at M-EC and we are really pleased to welcome three new team members to further strengthen our civil and structural engineering and acoustics offer.

“Lance Poole brings a wealth of global expertise from large international projects and has a good eye for cost effective buildable details in all structural materials. Adam Walker joins us with a varied career to date and innovative ideas for the air acoustic team and James Brant has a specialism in drainage design which will also boost our civils team. We look forward to what the future holds.”
