WSP poaches Arup and Mouchel staff for senior roles

WSP has appointed two new department heads from Arup and Mouchel to lead its building services and environment businesses.

Nick Offer has been appointed to head WSP’s London building services unit.

He worked previously for Arup, where he helped lead the London building services team and directed several major projects including the Shard and the Olympic village.

Mr Offer has 30 years of experience in building services consulting and also spent six years at Faber Maunsell.

Meanwhile, Mark Hurley has been appointed to lead WSP’s environment and energy business across the UK.

Mr Hurley spent the past 14 years at Mouchel, where he was most recently head of environment and won the firm places on a number of strategic frameworks, including Thames Water, HS2 and the Homes and Communities Agency.

WSP UK managing director Mark Naysmith said: “As the economy continues to improve we are seeing many areas of the business picking up, particularly in the power transmission and generation, infrastructure and industrial sectors.

“We wish to be best placed to capitalise on this, and Mark’s appointment will position us well to deliver our strategic objectives.”

Earlier this month WSP announced the appointment of Paul Reaston as head of environment planning, Chris Lawrence as head of rail systems, and Philippe Honnorat as head of building services.

Previous WSP head of environment and energy Oliver Wildgoose was an interim lead after the merger of WSP and Genivar in August 2012 and will return to a senior finance role within the business.
