It’s not every day that a seasoned professional with over 30 years of experience joins your team. SCP are delighted to welcome Ijaz “Jaz” Akram to the North West design team as a Principal Engineer working predominantly out of our recently opened Liverpool office. Jaz brings with him a wealth of expertise and a passion for creating innovative solutions in the fields of highways and drainage infrastructure design. His impressive journey, spanning multiple roles and experiences, is a testament to his dedication to the field.
Jaz began his journey in the industry at the University of Manchester, where he earned his Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree in Civil Engineering. He’s since expanded his knowledge by obtaining a Diploma in Building Surveying from Reading College of Estate Management, showcasing his commitment to developing a well-rounded skill set.
As a graduate Jaz started his career with Liverpool City Council, where he had the opportunity to contribute to projects that directly impacted the infrastructure of the city.
North West Regional Director, Nick McGorry, shared his thoughts on Jaz’s arrival, saying, “Having known Jaz for over 15 years, working with him previously on two occasions, I’m delighted to have him onboard with our growing infrastructure team. Jaz brings over 30 years of varied experience in the industry with him and will support our North West infrastructure team with the sustainable growth we have targeted in our 5 year business plan”
Upon joining the North West design team, Jaz expressed his enthusiasm for the opportunity to work on a range of large-scale projects and engage with a diverse portfolio of clients. His eagerness to collaborate with the wider internal group underscores his commitment to teamwork and achieving exceptional results for every project he takes on.
