The civil and structural engineering career of Wilem Frischmann, founding partner of consultant Pell Frischmann, was recognised last week when he was handed the Outstanding Personal Contribution Award at the British Expertise International Awards.
Frischmann formed the firm in 1968 having originally joined CJ Pell 10 years earlier. As founding chairman, he has overseen its growth into a multidisciplinary, operation employing around 1,000 staff globally.
Projects have included Tower 42 and Centre Point in London, the HSBC Tower in Hong Kong, the May Bank headquarters in Kuala Lumpur and the Merihaka Tower in Helsinki.
Following an engineering career spanning more than 50 years, Frischmann continues to remain closely involved with the firm.
This month former Atkins chief executive Keith Clarke joined the firm as deputy chairman to support Frischmann and the management team.
