All change at Acies

July 13, 2019

Acies, the civil and structural engineering consultancy that joined RSK in May 2017, has announced a change to its leadership.

Two of its directors, Mike Rudd and Neil Clarkson, have retired, and the business will now be led by Lyndsay Waymont as managing director and supported by technical director Mike Greenhalgh and associate directors Brian McClement, Emily Cruickshanks and Paul Matthewman.

“Mike was one of the founding partners of Acies,” said Lyndsay. “I joined a few weeks later, so we have been colleagues for 21 years. Neil joined our Edinburgh office in April 2002, so he has spent 17 years with the company. They have taken Acies from strength to strength: we have seen other colleagues come and go over the years, we have offered different disciplines at times, such as architecture and building surveying, but the core service of civil and structural engineering has always been at the heart of the business. We’ve been through recessions, rebranding and relocations, culminating a couple of years ago with our acquisition by RSK. After so much time and shared history, this will be a big change for Acies. But our people have always been great at stepping up to challenges.”

Mike Greenhalgh will be overseeing Acies projects in its Edinburgh and Cheshire offices. As of Monday, 22 July, new recruit Emily Cruickshanks, a chartered engineer in IStructE and ICE and a certifier for SER in Scotland, has joined associate director Brian McClement in the Edinburgh office. In the Cheshire office, Paul Matthewman is promoted to associate director.
