Pick Everard restructures resources and recruits for expansion in East Anglia

Multi-disciplinary construction consultancy Pick Everard is recruiting for its Bury St Edmunds office in East Anglia after a major restructuring of its eastern region.

To meet increasing demand from clients for services, three new regional managers have been appointed to lead project management, building services and architecture in the eastern region. Alan DeMerquis will manage building services, Julie Mortimer will lead project management, oversee quantity surveying and CDM-C, Richard Torkington, working with Keith Prendergast, will lead architecture and building surveying. Peter Hansen continues to oversee structural and civil engineering.

Paul Darlow, Pick Everard Director explains:

“Pick Everard is one of the largest multi-disciplinary firms in the eastern region. Restructuring has allowed us to bring in three senior managers with considerable national experience to expand our team locally by 30%. Their focus will be to effectively coordinate all the resources we have as a national practice for projects in our region.

“We are the strategic partner for Smarte East and we are currently working on major public sector capital works for local authorities and other public sector bodies in Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk and in several London boroughs through the London Construction Programme.”

Alastair Hamilton, Pick Everard Partner commented:

“Our strategic plan is to deliver expansion and growth as a major consultancy in this region and as a local employer. The recent restructuring and recruitment are all part of that development.”
