Ramboll invests in Leeds team with public health and director roles

Ramboll has appointed Rickesh Miyangar as its new head of public health engineering. A design and engineering specialist, Miyangar will be part of the team leading the company’s digitally enabled net zero carbon project delivery and the expansion of Ramboll’s building services engineering presence in Leeds, as the company continues its investment in the region. 

Miyangar joins Ramboll from WSP, where he developed the business’s capabilities in drainage and water conservation. He brings decades of experience in the design and implementation of drainage systems, water services, fire protection systems, and surveying and assurance across a broad range of development types.  

Commenting on his appointment, Miyangar said: “I am delighted to be joining such an experienced and growing team, and look forward to developing Ramboll’s building services capability within the Leeds division. It comes at an extremely exciting and pivotal time in terms of both the region’s continued development and the need to accelerate net zero delivery for every project.”

His appointment follows a further two additional internal promotions within Ramboll’s building services team, as Richard Manning and Alex Rochelle are appointed as directors. Between them, they have delivered high-profile projects such as Hull Academies, York Engineer’s Triangle and over 50 projects for universities across the region. 

Commenting on the triple appointment, Matt Hann, UK head of building services and divisional director north, said: “With three building services directors now supplementing our extensive multidisciplinary offering, to drive relationships, technical innovation and net zero carbon project delivery, Ramboll’s Leeds office is able to meet ever evolving and complex client challenges.”

As he starts his new role, one of Miyangar’s first Ramboll assignments will be the ‘Future Olympia’ redevelopment in London, consisting of seven new buildings, including two hotels, commercial offices and a 4,400-capacity live music venue.
