Nottingham-based engineering consultancy, Howard Ward Associates (HWA), has expanded its team with two new hires.

Theodora Francis joins the firm as a senior civil engineer, alongside Nadeem Chaudhry as senior technician.

From its office in Nottingham, HWA delivers construction engineering consultancy services across the country, and works in a range of sectors and specialities including education, residential, healthcare, emergency services and solar PV.

In her new role, Theodora will be providing detailed civil engineering design solutions including securing approvals from governing bodies in response to development proposals. She is a graduate member of ICE and has a BEng (Hons) degree in civil engineering from Plymouth University.

With 14 years’ experience in the industry, Theodora specialises in designing private and adoptable highways, external works and drainage schemes for residential developments, care homes and commercial schemes.

Newly appointed senior technician Nadeem Chaudhry will be involved in handling large scale projects within HWA’s portfolio and will utilise his technical skills and knowledge to successfully deliver schemes in a range of sectors.

Nadeem has more than 30 years of experience in his field and has developed a great expertise in 3D building modelling and coordination for multiple types of structures and buildings.

The new hires are joining the team as HWA’s portfolio of work continues to expand locally and nationally including housing, residential and commercial schemes including some worthwhile city centre regeneration.

Dan Bailey, director at Howard Ward Associates, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Theodora and Nadeem to the team, they each possess a wealth of experience and talent in their own field of expertise which will be hugely valuable to the company. We work together as a close-knit team and view our staff as our greatest asset.”

“Our work is extremely varied and we’re proud to have successfully delivered projects which call on our technical expertise and have supported both our local communities in the East Midlands and further afield.

“We’re pleased to be introducing Theodora and Nadeem to the exciting projects we are currently working on, and wish them every success in their new roles.”

The firm was recently appointed by Ineco Energy to deliver a major solar PV project at 41 sites across Coventry, as part of a wider decarbonisation scheme which will deliver carbon reductions and renewable energy generation improvements at various council-owned sites; such as sports facilities, schools, office buildings, cemeteries and country park visitor centres.
