UK-based engineering consultancy Dice is set to open its second office, appointing a new associate director to lead the Sheffield team.
Adam Jolly, who joins from Mott MacDonald, will be heading the new Sheffield office, which will initially be home to four civil and structural engineers.
The office will be overseen by Dice director Jon Svikis, with the wider Sheffield operation also supported by the multidisciplinary team at the Nottingham head office, which Dice opened five years ago.
Dice says the decision to open in Sheffield has come as a result of a growing customer base in the Yorkshire region and ongoing projects in the city.
The firm says the move gives it a base to service existing clients and build contacts with some of the UK’s major tier one contractors and consultants who operate out of Yorkshire.
Adam said: “I’m delighted at the prospect of joining the talented Dice team and being a key part of the new office in Sheffield.
“The business is excelling in its field, and I’m delighted to be part of its impressive growth.
Dice director Wayne Oakes added: “We already have established relationships with key partners including design consultants, developers, and clients within the Sheffield City Centre Region, so having a presence in the city is the next step in our growth.
“Yorkshire is one of the most prominent regions in the country, with two of the UK’s largest growing cities.
“We see Sheffield as a key city within the UK, providing access to the wider Yorkshire market, including Leeds and surrounding areas.
“Sheffield also has two key universities, allowing us to recruit the best up-and-coming talent.”
He added: “We are seeing ongoing investment within Sheffield and surrounding districts due to key inward investment from schemes such as Heart of the City, University of Sheffield and Hallam University, AMRC, West Bar to name a few.
“There are also a number of other accelerating markets in the region such as Leeds, as well as developing regions driven by initiatives such as Towns Funds, Levelling Up, and Northern Powerhouse.”
