M-EC, one of the leading engineering consultancies in the country, has made a senior appointment to bolster its Flood Risk and Drainage team at its Leicestershire office in Hugglescote.

The company welcomes Hardeep Rai, a former flood risk management officer with Nottinghamshire County Council, Warwickshire County Council and The Environment Agency, as an Associate Flood Risk Engineer with considerable experience in flood risk and surface water management, sustainable drainage and planning.

Hardeep said of his appointment: “I’m looking forward to working closely with clients and being more involved in developments. I’ve worked on the other side of the table for many years but now I’m in this role, I hope to help shape sites to be more sustainable by managing water effectively.”

Hardeep’s appointment comes as the threat of Climate Change and its associated impacts are having a larger effect on development feasibility, with a greater need for engineers to quantify the impacts of flood risk and to manage these increased risks.

Eddie Mewies, managing director for M-EC added: “Hardeep’s knowledge of flood risk strategy is vast and he’ll be a great addition to the team. We’re already engaged with some challenging projects and Hardeep’s experience will certainly be a huge support to satisfying both clients and the Local Authorities.”

Hardeep concluded: “Flooding, or even just the threat of it, can have such a huge impact on people’s lives, as we’re seeing at the moment in Whaley Bridge, and if we, as engineers, can help to reduce the risk and limit the impact on the environment, then we’re doing our bit.”

M-EC has offices in Birmingham, Brighton, Leicester and Milton Keynes, the company’s extensive client base currently covers commercial, education, industrial, residential, leisure and retail projects.

Currently employing over 60 people – including highly qualified engineering and environmental professionals – M-EC is becoming recognised as one of the most client-focused consultancies in the industry.
