A large proportion of Atkinson Pecks technical staff are well qualified, widely experienced, Chartered Civil and Structural Engineers. Each project, no matter how large or small will fall under the guidance of a Chartered Engineer; normally one of our Directors or Associates. For larger projects we find that utilising a close knit project team under the direction of an experienced member of staff ensures that design work is carried out in an efficient manner.

Atkinson Peck considers our staff to be our most important resource and recognise that training and development is vital to maintain the highest standards of service to our customers. Our aim therefore is to ensure that all employees are encouraged to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for them to carry out their duties efficiently and to provide every opportunity for career development. The following training policy has therefore been implemented:-

  • All new employees will be given induction training to familiarise them with all company policies, procedures and practices appropriate to their role.
  • All members of staff receive an annual review with the Directors, where past performance is reviewed, objectives set for the year ahead and future training needs identified.
  • Design Office staff are expected to join relevant Chartered Institutions and attain professional qualifications wherever possible.
  • It is mandatory that all professionally qualified staff members are required to keep and submit annually a record of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). CPD helps to maintain and enhance knowledge and skills, focus an individual’s career development, broaden their skills set and demonstrate commitment to their profession.
  • Design Office staff are encouraged to attend in-house and external seminars and training courses, to keep abreast of latest Standards, Codes of Practice and industry developments.
  • Profiled here are the Directors and Associates who are responsible for the companies continued success; setting professional standards and directing personal development.
