WSP appoints new head of security consulting

WSP has recruited a new head of security consulting for the UK.

Matthew Brittle takes on the role having previously served as head of security consulting at Atkins and as head of security solutions and critical infrastructure protection EMEA for Honeywell.

Mr Brittle will support WSP’s design teams and their clients in the property and infrastructure sectors to develop solutions to security and risk management issues.

He previously spent four years as security lead on the London 2012 Olympics and taught security and counter-terrorism to the Afghan National Army.

Mr Brittle is a chartered engineer, chartered security professional and has a Master’s in weapon effects on structures from Cranfield University.

He said: “I am engaged with clients on a wide range of projects from stadiums to critical infrastructure, providing threat and risk analysis as well as developing security concept plans through to full detailed design and support.

“I look forward to helping our clients and company have secure environments in which their businesses can thrive safely.”

Feature: How to terror-proof buildings

Construction News interviewed one of Mr Brittle’s predecessors in the role last year, Chris Driver-Williams, about what designers and contractors need to consider when designing buildings to protect from the threat of serious crime or terrorist attack.
