New faces light up Eddisons


Property group Eddisons has expanded its Manchester-based transport planning and highway design consultancy with three new appointments.

Eddisons said its growing transport planning and highway design consultancy provides detailed highways design, transport and traffic advice to predominantly private sector clients, ‘helping them maximise the commercial value of land and assets throughout the planning and design process’.

The team, which was founded in 2011 and is now 14-strong, recently won a bid to design 'cycle-friendly' public highway works for Birmingham’s largest housing scheme, the 5,500-home Langley Sutton Coldfield development.

Harry Lo has joined the highway design team from Hong Kong engineering consultancy Mott Macdonald as a graduate engineer, while Genna Woods has joined the planning team as a trainee technician, graduating this year from Manchester Metropolitan University with a masters in computer science.

Lucy Gretton has also returned to Eddisons, where she spent a placement year as part of her Manchester University human geography degree, re-joining the planning team as a graduate transport planner.

Eddisons partner Phil Wooliscroft who leads the transport planning and highway design teams with Mike Coogan, said: ‘We are really pleased to welcome these three highly impressive young people to the planning and highway design teams. Eddisons is passionate about recruiting and nurturing fresh talent and their enthusiasm and new ideas are essential to the firm’s future success.

‘Harry, Genna and Lucy’s appointments will significantly strengthen the level of service that we can provide to our clients as we expand across the country and we are absolutely delighted that they have chosen to work at Eddisons.’
