The pair had both previously been equity partners of Peter Brett Associates until the firm’s acquisition by Stantec in 2018.

Patalia was a national urban regeneration sector lead at Stantec and joins WSP in the same role within the firm’s building structures department.

McDougall will work within the building services specialism, supporting the design and delivery of net zero carbon buildings, having previously led Stantec’s UK Building Services and Energy Engineering group.
