Vectos opening two new offices in South West England

We are delighted to announce that today Vectos is opening two new offices, headed up by transport planning leaders in the local property and development market: Neil Brant in Bristol and Jonathan Lloyd in Exeter.

Vectos Founding Director Ian Dix said the Board is thrilled about the positive outlook for the growing business and the new service offering of Drainage, Flood Risk and Hydrology, which will be championed by expert Dr Andrew Clay.

“This is an exciting year for us. Not only are we reaching our first significant milestone of five years’ operation under the Vectos banner, but our success is allowing us to expand to service more of England,” he said.

“As well as providing transport planning services, these offices will provide detailed highway and drainage design, flood risk assessments and attenuation schemes, hydrology studies and utilities studies at the feasibility stage.

“This will strengthen our presence in the South West and broaden our expertise. This new service offering will be utilised across the entire business, providing more convenient and comprehensive services to our clients.”

Neil Brant has 30 years’ experience and was previously responsible for the traffic and transportation business within WSP's Bristol and Exeter offices. He will be joining the Vectos Board as a Director and, alongside Jonathan, has been instrumental in establishing the new South West regional presence for Vectos. He said:

“It’s as apparent today as it has been throughout my 30 years in the profession that the development sector requires niche companies that are suitably agile yet have the full breadth of capability to deliver the specialist commercial solutions required in a constantly evolving environment. The depth of knowledge and experience that Vectos brings is immense and that is now reflected on a regional basis across the South West of England.”

Jonathan Lloyd has 15 years’ experience and previously managed a team at WSP’s Exeter office that was responsible for delivering transport assessments, travel plans, highway scheme design, environmental impact assessments, appeal and judicial review. He will be joining Vectos as a Regional Director for Bristol and Exeter and the local manager for the Exeter office. He said:

“I’ve been fortunate enough to work in the South West since 2003 and enjoy all the region has to offer, its beautiful coastlines, countryside and a resilient economy. I’ve seen the development sector here grow significantly during this time and what is clear to me, whether I’m working with a local land owner or large PLC, is that good advice is good advice. I’m lucky enough now to be working with Vectos, a well-regarded and established business that shares my values and enables me to offer clear and simple advice to my clients in a competitive market, knowing there is a wealth of experience and the very best team behind me.”

In addition to Neil and Jonathan, a further eight staff have been appointed across these offices: Dr Andrew Clay, Mark Clements, Andrew Dennis, Dafydd Rees, Nick Bosanko, Jason Huxham, Stan Gruncell and Ben Buswell. If you would like to learn more about these staff, please follow the links to view their profiles.

Both offices will be integrated into Vectos (South) Limited and will become part of the core business, operating in the same manner as the Cardiff and London offices. All offices will work in synergy and will be available to assist on inter-office projects as required to ensure these new services are available to all of our clients.
