We are happy to announce that 3 new staff members have joined the team at Millard Consulting!
Craig Borthwick joined the team on 23rd January 2017. Craig graduated from University of Abertay in 2016. He studied BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering and achieved a 2:1 classification with distinction. Having previously completed a 12-week industrial placement with Millard Consulting in 2015, Craig was keen to re-join the team as a full-time graduate engineer in order to build upon the experience gained during the placement.
Craig is primarily based within the Infrastructure and Transportation team, but also assists within the Environmental and Structures teams. His duties include design and specification for infrastructure projects, completing drainage testing on site, liaising with authorities; architects; sub-contractors and clients, as well as gas level and water level testing. Craig is keen to continue developing his knowledge and experience by contributing, wherever possible, towards the range of services offered by Millard Consulting.
Gavin Brierton started as a Structural Engineer with Millard on 1st June 2017. Gavin has an honours degree in Civil Engineering from Heriot Watt University – B.Eng, (Hons) and is a Chartered Engineer with the Institution of Civil Engineers – C. Eng. M.I.C.E. . He has also been a certifier for the design of Building Structures with SER Ltd. since 2005.
Gavin has worked all over Scotland during his career and has previously worked for Upton McGougan in Edinburgh before their office closed down due to the economic downturn. He then moved on to Cameron & Ross in Aberdeen before being head hunted by Algo Design & Build in Perth, where he was the main steelwork designer, so Gavin brings a vast amount of experience and knowledge to the Structures team.
Sarah Bruce was initially given a 12-week placement at Millard in her third year at University. She impressed the team so much she was offered to stay on working with us over summer. She has since been offered a graduate job and has now joined us on a full-time basis.
Sarah has a First Class BSc (Hons) Civil Engineering and will graduate in Summer 2017 with an MSc in Civil Engineering. Sarah usually works with the structural team doing structural drawings, basic structural calculations, attending meetings and site visits, and liaising with architects. As a Graduate Engineer, Sarah will have much more responsibility. She will be doing more structural design and communicating with clients. Sarah will also work with the Infrastructure and Environmental teams on a regular basis to help broaden her knowledge and experience.
Everyone at Millard Consulting wishes our 3 fantastic new staff members, a big congratulations! We look forward to seeing what the future brings for our ever expanding team!
