Eadon Welcomes Nick Francis

Eadon Consulting welcomes Nick Francis who joins the team at the start of 2016. He arrives having spent 16 years as an officer in the Royal Engineers. He is a passionate and experienced engineer with a track record of delivering innovative solutions to challenging problems.

Nick has worked on a wide range of projects across multiple sectors. From the repair and design of bridges to the construction of Ebola hospitals in Sierra Leone, he has built a successful career leading inspiring and diverse projects. In addition to his practical accomplishments Nick has also spent time training and mentoring graduates.

His work in Sierra Leone was widely acknowledged and he was awarded the Operational Engineering Award by The Worshipful Company of Engineers in 2015. More of Nicks work includes the innovative design of emergency flood defences which prevented the town of Romsey from catastrophic flooding, and his analysis of blast and ballistic loading played a key role in protecting military camps in Afghanistan from large vehicle bombs. One of his most rewarding opportunities came when he was approached to design a footbridge in a sensitive, historic location, which was to be built entirely by hand. The project exemplified Nick’s holistic approach to design and won Institution of Civil Engineers awards for both Structures and Innovation.

Having commanded a squadron of over 200 soldiers, Nick arrives at Eadon with extensive management experience. Outside the army he has worked as a construction manager on the Westfield Stratford City site, delivering a £14M package of infrastructure work and as a design engineer for Arup.

Going forward Nick can’t wait to get his teeth stuck into some exciting new challenges and will be in his element sharing his enthusiasm for engineering.

With this new appointment Eadon Consulting look forward to another prosperous year.
