Senior appointment sparks growth for Yorkshire engineers

Leeds civil and structural engineers RWO has announced a senior appointment as it continues to develop and grow its regional and national operations.

Rik Binnersley, who is a RoSPA approved road safety auditor, joins as a principal civil engineer bringing almost 25 years’ experience in residential, commercial and highways work to the role. He will focus on providing design services and advice to RWO’s regional and national house builders, commercial contractors and developers.

The appointment comes as RWO has continued to maintain a strong performance in construction and development sectors that have experienced considerable transition in the last 12 months, which has driven increased levels of demand for civil and structural engineering expertise and services.

Currently employing 30 people and targeting revenues in excess of £2.5m in the next six months, RWO’s current clients include Yorkshire-based industrial construction companies Potter Space, ESH and Lindum, and housebuilders Harron Homes and Gleeson Homes.

Andrew Fairburn, director and head of RWO’s Leeds office, said: “As we look to secure continued growth and recruit additional expertise to support our expanding client base, investment in talented people remains the linchpin of providing top quality advice to regional and an expanding portfolio of national clients.”

Rik Binnersley added: “It’s an exciting time for RWO and the wider engineering sector and I very much look forward to working closely with the team to continue to develop the business. I also look forward to supporting our clients and helping them to grow their own operations and secure project development requirements.”
