As part of its endeavour to offer specialist services to a wider customer base in the UK, BMT WBM (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, has appointed Dr Matthew Roberts to lead a new flooding and environmental modelling team, to be based in its London City office.
Tony McAlister, Managing Director of BMT WBM comments: “We’re delighted to welcome Matthew and look forward to working with him to expand our service offering in the UK market. Drawing on the collective skills and wealth of knowledge which is available within the BMT group of companies, Matthew and his team will focus on demonstrating our expertise in the niche market areas of flooding, surface water and environment modelling with a focus on computational fluid dynamics.”
Previously at Capita Symonds, Matthew has provided technical expertise on numerous UK and international projects for private and public sector clients, ranging from detailed site specific Flood Risk Assessments and Environmental Impact Assessments, through to broad scale Strategic Catchment Flood Management works.
