Wates eyes civils move with infrastructure director role

Wates has appointed a new managing director of infrastructure, as it considers a push into the civil engineering market.

Terry O’Connor was previously operations director at Alfred McAlpine Civil Engineering and Operations Manager at Miller Civil Engineering.

Wates, chiefly a building contractor, is believed to be tempted by the long-term pipelines in sectors such as roads and rail.

The firm said the appointment of Terry O’Connor “supports the company’s growth aspirations and continuing drive to identifying new and adjacent markets”.

It added: “O’Connor will be responsible for developing an overarching strategy to formulate a business proposition that operates in different business cycles to Wates main business.”
