Winvic Construction Ltd has appointed Rob Cook, formally of Graham Construction, as its new civils and infrastructure director.
Mr Cook has more than 20 years' experience in the sector with a number of leading firms and has worked on operational, framework-led and strategic highways schemes, utilities, marine, underground cabling and tunnelling and drainage.
Winvic managing director David Ward commented: 'Rob is a great addition to our team where we have an ever-growing reputation for delivering complex multi-phase and multi-stakeholder civils and infrastructure projects.
'With Rob on the team it will help amplify our focus on civils and infrastructure and will continue to strengthen our current standing in the sector.'
Winvic's existing projects include town and city ‘Gateway’ sites such as the recently completed 700-acre SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway (SLPEMG).
Designated a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), this scheme comprised new carriageways and motorway slip roads, a rail freight terminal, numerous structures, major utility works and diversions as well as in excess of five million cubic metres of earthworks.
The three-year SLPEMG project was managed by project manager Mark Skelton, who is now promoted to contracts director, where he will be responsible for all of Winvic’s civils and infrastructure project teams.
Mr Cook said: 'Working with my new team and the existing senior leadership, we have a great opportunity to not only deliver project excellence but also to further grow our wider offering to the sector. I believe I have the right skill-set to complement and develop the existing Winvic team and already feel at home with the Winvic culture.'
Throughout the challenging Covid-19 response, Winvic has been appointed to deliver and started four new civils and infrastructure schemes.
