Engineering firm appoints regional director

Adept Civil and Structural Consulting Engineers has appointed Gareth Shepherd as regional director, and has made four further appointments, in its Leeds office.

Gareth brings more than two decades worth of experience, in the civil and structural engineering consultancy sector, to the role, and has spent the last four years at WYG Engineering.

Throughout his career, he has delivered a wide range of high-profile projects including industrial and distribution schemes, retail projects, historic building renovations and reinforced concrete framed residential towers.

In his new role, Gareth will work alongside Adept’s management team, designing engineering solutions and leading project teams as well as liaising with existing clients and developing new business opportunities.

Adept has also appointed Luke Wilson as a civil engineering technician, Johann Zeuner Griffiths as a graduate civil engineer, Callum Street as a trainee structural engineer and James Watchorn as an apprentice technician.

Gareth said: “Adept is renowned for providing a quality service, across all types of projects, with an ethos and approach that aligns exactly with my own values and how I work with fellow clients, contractors and consultants.

“It was clear from the conversations with Erol and the team that the common ground we share in terms of kind of projects we enjoy delivering, and the clients we like working with, meant it was the right for fit for all of us. Above all I’m excited to return to industry amongst a group of like-minded people set on achieving the same goals.”

Erol Erturan, managing director at Adept, added: “Gareth is very well respected and has delivered all types of projects, throughout their entire life cycles, from winning bids and initial site appraisals through to providing a hands-on approach right through construction. Crucially, he works across all sectors, which matches our varied client base, and all this combined to make him a great fit for our team.

“It’s no secret that the construction industry has been badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, but during the summer months we’ve won work throughout Yorkshire and the North West. We’ve also established a physical presence in Sheffield, following several contract wins in the city, to complement our Leeds and Manchester offices. Appointing Gareth, Luke, Johann, Callum and James will enable us to service this demand, as well being an investment in the future talent of the industry.”
