Adams began his career at Keller in 1997 after obtaining his PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Bradford, specifically publishing research on ‘Load Transfer Mechanisms and Behaviour of Ground Anchorages in Weak Mudstone'. Since then, he has amassed a vast amount of experience and knowledge, from estimating and designing geotechnical solutions to successfully managing key geotechnical and geoenvironmental contracts.
Adams will join Aarsleff's growing Geotechnical Department, which delivers value engineered solutions for its clients, such as soil nailing, specialist drilling and grouting, ground anchors and mini piling.
Adams has previous experience working for Mott MacDonald and Keller Geotechnique, but most recently as estimating manager of the Specialist Geotechnics Division of Bachy Soletanche for over seven years. In his various roles, he has worked on several prestigious projects across the UK and Ireland, including Lockwood Beck MTS Shaft Grouting and Piling, London Bridge Station Upgrade and Crossrail.
Speaking about the appointment, Kevin Hague, MD of Aarsleff Ground Engineering said: "It is a pleasure to welcome Dan to the Aarsleff team. His expertise will allow us to go from strength to strength, with our continued commitment in delivering high-quality geotechnical solutions for our clients. We also appointed Jonathan Proctor as head of Geotechnical Department earlier this year. Both Dan and Jonathan bring with them over 40 years of combined knowledge and experience and have a genuine passion for their work."
