Beca's water networks team has strengthened its leadership with the recent appointments of Andy Gibson, Business Director - Network Planning, and Dan Stevens, Business Director - Water. These senior appointments are a testament to the recent growth experienced by Beca in the water sector.
Andy emigrated from the UK in 2005 and will be based in the Christchurch office. He has over twenty years' experience in the water sector, including extensive experience in modeling major trunk sewer systems and has developed asset management approaches for the likes of Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (SCIRT) and Watercare's Central Interceptor project.
Dan is a nationally recognised expert in the planning of water supply networks, having had early involvement in the development of water network modeling software with HR Wallingford in the UK. He has worked in New Zealand for the last 10 years and has developed strong client relationships across Australasia. He will also be based in Christchurch, focusing on water distribution, water network planning and operational optimisation.
Clive Rundle, General Manager - Water, said "Together Andy and Dan's extensive industry expertise and technical excellence will help build our network planning services across Australia and New Zealand. We are looking forward to the contribution they will make to delivering great outcomes for our clients".
