Arup makes water projects hire

Arup has hired a new water projects expert.

Sheba Hafiz joined the firm as West Coast Water Leader and member of the San Francisco leadership team to oversee Arup’s portfolio of water projects in the region.

John Eddy, Arup principal and San Francisco infrastructure leader, said: "Our water challenges in the West are as numerous as the solutions and as the jurisdictions involved. Sheba's experience in water, wastewater and recycled water significantly grows our West Coast sector water skills, which already include water conveyance and green infrastructure."

With 20 years’ experience in planning, design, construction and project management, Hafiz has advised both public and private clients across the western states.

Sheba said: "I'm honored to join the Arup team here on the West Coast. I'm looking forward to bringing my skills and experience in this field to Arup's diverse range of clients."
