Roads maintenance contractor Amey has created a new ‘super-team’ at its consulting operation to specialize in analyzing data, analytics and technology in infrastructure.
The company claims that the Strategic Consulting and Technology team will be the largest of its kind in the UK with a staff of 90 people.
Amey’s managing director for consulting and rail Nicola Hindle (pictured) said: “Amey has been at the forefront of consulting in the UK for many years now and creating this new team is the next step in advancing our consulting and asset management offering globally.
“The team will help asset owners to better understand and manage their assets, ensuring that our solutions and recommendations are driving better infrastructure decisions. It marks a significant milestone in Amey’s journey and will be crucial to us achieving our ambitious growth plans over the coming years.”
The team will be based at offices in London and Manxhester but will work across the UK and also on international projects for the Spanish-owned group.
Associate director Charles Oldham will head up the new team. “Our job is to make sure that we’re helping them manage their assets in the most effective and efficient way using the increasing power of data, analytics and software technology,” said Mr Oldham.
“This new team brings together our talent in this area to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of the changes and opportunities data and technology are generating across the entire asset lifecycle.”
