Atkins has appointed Rick Hancock as country director of its design & engineering business for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Hancock was latterly based in the UAE with Cumming Corporation, the project management and cost consulting firm, and previously with Faithful+Gould following its acquisition of Confluence in 2013.
“I am delighted to be heading up Atkins’ design and engineering operations in Saudi Arabia,” he said.
“The company has a long and proud history of working on some of the country’s most iconic projects, and this gives us the credibility and knowledge to play a significant role in building its exciting future.”
The international design, engineering and project management consultancy has never been busier in Saudi Arabia.
In addition to its original involvement in the delivery of the Riyadh Metro, Atkins is currently working on King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), re-masterplanning the area as a world-class, vibrant and integrated mixed-use destination and a broad range of other projects across Saudi Arabia.
