We are delighted to announce the promotion of Eva Mills to Director of Hydrock’s national Building Performance Engineering business. Eva takes over the position from Henry Easterbrook, who, as a Board Director, has a centralised, national role, driving innovation and growth across Hydrock’s multi-disciplinary divisions.
Hydrock’s Building Performance Engineering business was founded from a standing start by Henry Easterbrook in 2013. The exceptional growth and success of this division now sees around 150 staff delivering services including fire engineering, acoustics, air quality, utilities, specialist environmental services including BREEAM, WELL and LEED assessments, and mechanical and electrical engineering. Henry was appointed to Hydrock’s Board in 2017.
Eva joined Hydrock in 2016 and brings over 20 years’ experience in the industry. She acted as project director delivering the M&E design on a major hi-spec R&D facility for Dyson; she has been instrumental in our work on the new headquarters for the UK Hydrographic Office and on our work with retirement living specialist, PegasusLife. Her contribution has also seen significant progress made in key areas including employee engagement and client satisfaction.
