Career Highlights: Tony Simpson
Tony’s first proper job was in the design office of Trent Concrete Limited, a national precast concrete company; he was employed an Engineering Technician working on multi-storey precast concrete framed structures. During his time at Trent Concrete, Tony worked on several high rise office developments which allowed him to gain valuable engineering experience in the design and detailing of building structures.
In order to progress his career, Tony joined Bunyan Meyer & Partners Limited (BMP) in 1976 where he continued to develop his structural design expertise, gaining valuable experience in the design of healthcare, educational, industrial, retail and commercial projects including major refurbishment schemes. At BMP, Tony worked on a huge range of retail projects for a large number of blue chip High Street retailers; developing a wealth of expertise and knowledge in retail structural engineering.
At the request of senior management at The Boots Company Limited, BMP allowed Tony to undertake a six month secondment to run and manage the Boots internal Structural Engineers Department. This secondment was a great success and Tony gained valuable management and leadership skills during this time.
Back at BMP, Tony was responsible for a number health construction projects, including new build and major alteration works for many NHS Hospital Trusts; this included the redevelopment of the Nottingham General Hospital.
Tony was also the key account manager for a number of BMP’s major clients including Argos, Warburtons and Boots.
A series of internal promotions saw Tony progress from the role of Senior Structural Engineer, via the position of Associate, to take up the role of Regional Director responsible for the day to day management of the Nottingham office of BMP.
In 2004 Tony was appointed a Director of Bunyan Meyer & Partners Limited and elevated to the Board.
