Consultant Waldeck has opened a new office in Sheffield as part of recent recruitment drive.
Sheffield City Councillor Tony Damms officially opened Waldeck’s new office last Thursday and said it’s great to see a business growing, especially in the current economic climate.
“I was delighted to be invited to celebrate the official opening of Waldeck’s new office - I’m always happy when a business locates in the city and I’m particularly pleased when it’s a business with a track record like Waldeck’s.”
Waldeck has employed senior project engineer Simon Payne and senior technician Jeff Newham and expects the move to Quayside House will help to create more jobs over the next 12 months.
Waldeck is one of the fastest growing consulting engineering firms in the UK and is working on some major projects including a multi-million pound scheme to restore Blackfriars railway bridge in London and a £210M Ocado distribution centre in Dordon, North Warwickshire.
Managing director Paul Waldeck said their success stems from the company’s culture of creativity and lateral thinking.
“There is a fundamental need to drive value into everything we do as construction professionals,” said Paul. Our approach is focused on taking what is often a very good traditional solution and then challenging the norm to derive potential opportunities to save our clients time and money.”
The relocation of the Sheffield office follows the launch of a Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) Department based at the company’s headquarters in Sleaford, Lincolnshire and is part of the company’s long-term strategy for growth.
