Amey has announced changes to its Secure Infrastructure business that will involve a newly created technical assurance division.
With the aim of strengthening its technical compliance and energy management capability, Amey has appointed chief engineer Dave O'Shaughnessy to head the new division and will be “investing in additional digital solutions and resource” as it seeks to “transform its approach” to compliance.
O'Shaughnessy’s colleague Lewis Welch becomes head of energy within the same team. The dedicated energy management function is aimed at helping customers meet net-zero carbon targets and provide better data on energy use.
Explaining the changes, Amey Secure Infrastructure’s managing director Craig McGilvray said that “technical compliance and energy management is a key component of our Secure Infrastructure strategy for 2021 and beyond.
“Over recent years we have revised our compliance approach to focus on assurance, technical services and data, in line with legislative and industry standards. Over the next decade, carbon reduction and sustainable business practices will be critical in tackling climate change. Dave and Lewis strengthen our existing expertise and ensure we can support our clients to help tackle climate change together.”
