New Faces Support New Building Projects

Romsey-based consulting civil and structural engineering company WFBA is continuing to introduce additional members of staff to their expanding team.  Harry Hunter graduated from Plymouth University in 2014 and since then has been working within the infrastructure team for a practice based in Exeter. Harry has relocated to Hampshire and to WFBA and is now working towards Chartered Accreditation with the Institute of Civil Engineering.  His appointment at WFBA will strengthen our civil engineering team and our offering to existing and new clients.

Two new team members are from the Hampshire region.  After 8 years with Southampton based AKS Ward, Graham Machin joins as a Senior Structural Engineer engaged on a variety of projects including a new eleven storey hotel scheme design for Portsmouth.  His ambition is to gain his Chartership within the next few years. 

Romsey’s Tom Marshall started with WFBA as a summer intern in 2015.  Now having gained his Master of Science in Civil Engineering at Cardiff University, he has been appointed as a Graduate Structural Engineer and supports the established team that problem solves on a range of intricate and sometimes frustrating projects! 

WFBA Director Nick Groves, who founded the company in 1995 with Managing Director Bill Brown said; “We are fortunate to be recommended by existing clients across a diverse range of market sectors which has contributed to the strong ongoing demand for our consultancy services. The scale of projects can vary from a £15,000 private home extension to a £30 million commercial development.”  

Anyone who joins the £1,000,000 turnover company will not only work with architects and developers within Hampshire but on construction projects throughout the UK.   These range from new Travelodge Hotels, retirement homes across the south for McCarthy and Stone, housing developments, complex refurbishments and one-off prestige projects.
