3rd September 2021

To support Regenerations expanding business, John F Hunt has named Dr Adam Fisher as their Ground Engineering Director.

Adam has over 25 years of experience in ground engineering and ground risk management he commented “I’m delighted to join John F Hunt as Ground Engineering Director, working with an amazing team of old and new friends and former colleagues going back as far as 20 years.

Having delivered ground engineering and risk management on both sides of the equator, I’ll be focusing my efforts on large regeneration projects in Rugeley and the West Midlands – where I grew up! With many regeneration projects across the UK in the pipeline to look forward to, there are busy times ahead.”

Adam’s experience allows the Regeneration team to support schemes with complex ground engineering elements and further strengthens their ability to be “a trusted advisor” to their clients.

He started his career in 1994 working for and being mentored by Bristol University’s Dr Brian Hawkins while completing his PhD. Following such a strong introduction to consultancy, Adam further progressed his knowledge and experience at Parkman and WSP prior to 10 dynamic years as Director at Hydrock.

In 2011 the desire for an international adventure saw him leave the UK for Western Australia’s iron ore mining industry.  Working for Calibre Global, he led ground risk management on a portfolio of high value, complex, rapid growth projects for demanding mining blue-chip companies.

After 3 amazing years, Adam and his family returned to the UK and he has worked in ground engineering/geotechnical consultancy ever since.

In recent years, working alongside regeneration and civil engineering contractors whilst a Partner at Campbell Reith, Adam felt that crossing from pure consultancy to contracting would provide an exciting and progressive opportunity to use his skills and experience “closer to the coal face”. Having worked with Regeneration to deliver projects with great success in the past, John F Hunt was the obvious place to make the change.
