Dr Sauer management changes

28 February 2018

Great Britain/Canada – Brian Lyons will be taking over from Gerald Skalla as MD of Dr Sauer & Partners in London, UK. Skalla will be strategic director for the UK, but will focus on the Canadian market and will build up a company office in Toronto, in response to a growing infrastructure market.

Lyons said, “I am looking forward to bringing our innovative and practical design solutions to more British clients and markets and further fostering relationships with design and contracting partners on upcoming infrastructure projects. One of my key aims is to raise the profile for [non-tunnelling] services including geotechnical engineering and asset protection so that clients can expect the same lean and constructible approach to wider ground engineering challenges, with even fewer interfaces.”

After 10 years of being the MD in London, Gerald said of his time “I look with pride on a team of expert tunnelling engineers within our London Office. They have delivered great service on numerous successful projects. Over the past decade, the UK company has grown into a capable and trusted team, backed up by the worldwide capabilities and experience of the wider Dr Sauer & Partners group. I’m excited to be taking my experience over to Canada, to see how we can expand further from the signature projects in Ottawa and Toronto.”
