Capita’s property and infrastructure business has appointed James Allard as Business Director for South Wales.
James joins Capita from outsourcing company Williams Lea where he was client services manager responsible for developing the company’s legal sector offering including BPO (business process outsourcing) and IT solutions.
His new role will include overseeing and growing Capita’s business across Wales.
Capita’s property and infrastructure business employs over 150 architecture, environment and transportation staff across South Wales. One of Wales' largest multidisciplinary consultancies, it has played lead design, engineering and management roles in some Wales’s largest and most iconic infrastructure, regeneration and building projects.
The company’s work includes the Wales Millennium Centre and the refurbishment of the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff; major transport and infrastructure schemes such as the Ebbw Valley Railway, Church Village and Llandysul Bypasses, and the Milford Haven Gas Pipeline; and major regeneration schemes in Bargoed, Aberdare and Pontypridd.
Its Welsh offices are also involved in major Capita schemes across the UK including the High Speed 2 (HS2) rail project (Capita is designing the northern section of the route).
I am delighted to be joining one of the UKâ€™s biggest and most respected property and infrastructure consultancies. The company offers a huge range of skills and experience and Iâ€™m looking forward to expanding its public and private sector client base. The operation in Wales has a great blend of experience and capability and my focus will be to make the most of these attributes and to grow our customer base.
