BakerHicks, the specialist design and engineering business, has appointed Mark Renshaw as associate director to head up its Civil and Structural Engineering team in London. Mark has spent the past ten years delivering a range of RIBA award-winning projects in London and the South East.

Commenting on his appointment, Mark said:
“I am excited by the opportunity of building on the company’s existing design and engineering expertise and using my skills to help diversify into new areas. Since re-branding to BakerHicks, there is an exciting conversation to be had with new and potential customers about the specialist services we provide, and the construction methods we support, across a broad range of projects.”
Andy Gotts, director of civil and structural engineering at BakerHicks added:
“BakerHicks continues to invest in best-in-class talent, and Mark’s skills complement those of the existing team. His appointment signals our commitment to growing our engineering consultancy team, which works successfully with architects, end-user clients, developers and contractors to design and deliver award-winning projects.”
