Professional services consultancy, WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has expanded its environmental team with the appointment of four new employees, and continues to recruit university leavers as part of its new graduate programme in Scotland.

Principal engineer Stuart Bigham, ecological consultant Robert Watt and environmental planning intern Andrew Johnston have joined the expanding team, which helps clients through the planning process including ecology, archaeology, landscape, air quality, ground contamination and environmental clerk of works supporting project build out.

And Associate Stuart Farquharson has joined its Glasgow office from AECOM.

Large scale environmental projects WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff are currently working on include the construction of the Gretna to Ewe Hill power line, routing of the Crossdyke 132kv grid connection, and the development of the International Business Gateway in Edinburgh.

Richard Jardine, Regional Director for Environment and Energy, said: “Demand for environmental services is growing in Scotland which is why I’m delighted to have the new recruits on board as they can help us make a strong team to build on our environment and energy division in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

“These appointments come at an important time for our business – which has bucked the gloomy trend of tough business conditions with expansion across all sectors and which will be actively recruiting graduates and apprentices this autumn.”
