One of the world’s leading engineering, architecture and environmental consulting companies, GHD has appointed Richard Croxson to lead a newly established contract services capability.

Richard joins GHD from global advisory firm Evans & Peck, where he developed a reputation as a construction contracts specialist, with a particular focus on delay analysis. Richard has also worked for multidisciplinary consultancies Cyril Sweett, Franklin + Andrews, and contractors Mowlem and Amey Construction.
