Amey has established a team of its top boffins specifically to focus on data, analytics and technology in infrastructure.
The 90-strong team will be part of Amey’s consulting business and is called the Strategic Consulting and Technology team.
Amey said the team includes star performers in fields including astrochemistry, computing, theoretical physics and maths.
“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,” said Amey’s managing director for consulting and rail Nicola Hindle.
“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 headed up by associated director Charles Oldham. He said: “Our clients include some of the largest infrastructure operators and development projects in the country such as Tideway, Heathrow Airport, Network Rail and National Grid. 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.
“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.”
The single team will be based in Amey’s London and Manchester offices.
