Morgan Sindall is to merge its construction business Morgan Ashurst and infrastructure services business Morgan Est to create a new enlarged division under the Morgan Sindall name.
Graham Shennan, managing director of Morgan Ashurst, will head-up the new division as managing director from today. He joined Morgan Sindall in 2002, and is a chartered civil engineer.
His appointment means that Mark Cutler, Morgan Est’s managing director, leaves the business this week.
A statement from Morgan Sindall said: "The decision to combine the two divisions comes at a time when the Group’s construction and infrastructure services businesses are increasingly working together on larger and more complex projects in sectors such as rail, aviation and defence. The new division will sit alongside Morgan Sindall’s three other divisions of fit out, affordable housing and urban regeneration which are supported by the Group’s specialist investment unit, Morgan Sindall Investments."
Paul Smith, group chief executive said, “I am really excited about the development of this new Morgan Sindall division which will enable the Group to provide a more focused and integrated service to clients and our JV partners. It will also transform the way our infrastructure and construction divisions work together and creates significant new opportunities for further business growth and development.
