Nottingham-based engineering consultancy, Howard Ward Associates (HWA), has appointed Arron Ross as structural engineer to join its expanding firm.
Founded in 1977, civil and structural engineering consultancy HWA works across all sectors and specialities including residential, emergency services and solar PV, providing civil and structural design services to projects with construction values ranging up to £30 million.
With nearly six years’ experience within the construction industry, Arron has joined HWA to assist with the technical delivery of a growing workload.
He is a graduate of the University of Brighton with a BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering degree and has expertise in steelwork design, testing and structural product development.
Arron is keen to progress in his new role by developing his skills and knowledge in both design and project management and with support working towards attaining chartership status.
On his new role, Arron said: “Joining the HWA team felt like the ideal career move for me as the company culture aligns with my values and the team works on a vast array of projects across multiple sectors. I’m very keen to bring a great work ethic and eagerness to my role as I expand my knowledge and experience and take on new challenges.
“It is evident to me that HWA treat its staff as its greatest asset. Everyone works together as a close-knit team and I’m looking forward to progressing with the company.”
Giles Ward, managing director of HWA, said: “We’re very pleased to welcome Arron to our team. With the uncertainty that the job market has seen over the last two years, sourcing the right person for the job has been of paramount importance to us.
“Arron makes fantastic addition to our growing consultancy. His technical and personal skills, experience and enthusiasm were exactly what we were looking for and we wish him every success in his new role here.”
With a number of exciting local and national projects in the pipeline this year, HWA have recently assisted in the completion of the new Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service Joint Headquarters and the new £13.2m Alfreton Park School.
