Romsey based WFBA has appointed Andy “Alpaca” Davis as a Senior Technician at the expanding consulting civil and structural engineering firm. Andy, from Totton, studied at the Southampton Technical College and prior to WFBA, held a similar management role with an international company.
When not working on multi-million pound construction projects for clients including McCarthy & Stone, Travelodge, and Southampton University, and some of the UK’s leading Architects, Andy with his wife Sally care for 6 male and 7 female Alpacas. After 4 years of breeding, five of the animals have gained top awards in local shows, including 1st in Class and reserve Champion at Romsey Show, 1stin Class and reserve Champion at Ellingham and Ringwood Show and 1st in Class and Champion at Honiton Show.
Nick Groves, Director at WFBA, says that Andy has one of the more unusual hobbies within the team of 26 employees: “It can be a stressful environment working on projects varying from a £25,000 private home extension to a £35 million commercial development so having a rural pastime can only be a good thing!”
