Multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy Dice has announced four new additions to its growing team to support with a number of exciting new projects and client wins.

Maia Stride, Niall Murray, Iva Dimitrov, and Thanos Fotiou have joined the growing Nottingham-based firm. Maia joins as an associate with more than ten-years of experience within the industry and Niall as structural revit technician – the firm’s first. Iva has been appointed as a senior civil engineer and Thanos as a structural engineer.

Dice, which was set up in 2018 by Wayne Oakes and Raj Somal, prides itself on being an agile and forward-thinking business. As a result, the firm adapted well to lockdown, continuing to win new projects and clients.

Maia, who has previously held roles within building, infrastructure, and environmental engineering. She said: “As a modern and streamlined company, I’m delighted to have joined Dice and look forward to growing the structures team.

“Implementing a supportive culture and championing collaborative working are two of the most vital elements when developing a successful and happy team, so I am very much looking forward to working with Wayne and Raj to build on Dice’s current offering.”

Niall, who has more than 12 years industry experience, said: “As a continually growing business, working at Dice is a fantastic opportunity for me to continue learning and developing my skillset. The whole team is focused on delivering the very best level of customer service for clients, as well as establishing Dice as one of the leading engineering consultants in the country.”

Iva and Thanos are the newest recruits to the Dice team. Iva has more than five years’ experience working as a civil engineer on a variety of national schemes, specialising in commercial developments and sustainable drainage design. Thanos, originally from Greece, specialises in structural engineering.

Raj Somal, director at Dice, added: “I am pleased to welcome Maia, Niall, Iva, and Thanos to Dice and look forward to working closely with them over the coming months. They are all experienced and talented engineers with values that closely align with the business, so we are very fortunate to have them all onboard.
