New infrastructure head for WSP

4 October 2012 Technical consultancy WSP has appointed a new UK head of infrastructure.
Duncan Symonds, who was previously operations director at contractor Laing O’Rourke, joins the team with a brief of developing the firm’s established infrastructure business in the UK.

“Developing our capability in infrastructure across a wider sector base is key to our long-term growth strategy,” said UK deputy managing director Mark Naysmith.  “Duncan’s experience and expertise will help us continue to grow our UK infrastructure division.”

Symonds has over 15 years in the UK infrastructure arena, and has worked on some of the country’s biggest and most high-profile projects, including leading a team on the pre-construction phase of London’s Crossrail project.
