New appointments at Leeds engineers

"Our investment in Paul and Alex alongside other experienced and talented people is the linchpin of providing top quality advice to our clients."
RWO managing director Ross Oakley

Leeds civil and structural engineering firm RWO has announced two senior appointments as it continues to invest in resources and support for client services.

Paul Smith joins as a senior civil engineer while Alex Mitcheson has been promoted to the position of principal engineer. With more than 30 years’ residential experience, Paul Smith will be part of the expanding civils team, providing design work for regional and national house builders, contractors and developers.

A member of the Institution of Civil Engineers, Alex Mitcheson will be involved in RWO's expanding range of commercial and residential civil engineering work, as well as supporting the senior management team in project planning and development.

Currently employing 25 people and targeting revenues in excess of £2m in the next 12 months, RWO is currently recruiting for a number of engineering and technician jobs to support new business wins.

This includes engineering support for a new 60,000 sq. ft. warehouse and distribution building in Liverpool for Marshall Construction (West Yorkshire) and various new residential schemes with facilities management and regeneration specialists, Equans.

Services have also been provided in the North East of England as part of plans to create affordable new homes on a former football ground and on land on the site of a former hospital in Newcastle

Managing director Ross Oakley said the building and construction sector continues to require access to high quality technical expertise and resources as the economy moves out of lockdown.

He added: “Our investment in Paul and Alex alongside other experienced and talented people is the linchpin of providing top quality advice to our clients. We look forward to both contributing to our ongoing success and adding significantly to the team’s knowledge, capabilities and all-round experience.”
