EKFB appoints new Director to deliver HS2 project

EKFB, the civil engineering joint venture of Eiffage, Kier, Ferrovial and BAM, has announced a change to its senior management team and appointed Peter Bimson as Project Director.

Previously Deputy Project Director and Operations Director for EKFB, Peter has been appointed to the role as part of the Board’s formal succession plan. In addition, Emmanuel Rossignol has been appointed to support in the role of Deputy Project Director.

Under Peter’s leadership, EKFB will offer employment opportunities to over 4,000 people at all levels and continue to deliver world-class construction and engineering and deliver on its mission to lead the transformation of the industry, influence future generations, and support the UK economy.


Peter Bimson commented on his appointment, saying: “I am delighted to have been appointed to lead EKFB in delivering an 80km section of one of Europe’s largest civil engineering projects, HS2.

“With Emmanuel’s and the senior leadership team’s support, I am confident that our existing and new people will achieve on our mission, on construction milestones and on social value.

“Working on this project for the past three years, I am proud of the achievements we have made to date, but am aware this is just the beginning and that we have a lot more ahead to deliver in 2021 and beyond.”

Olivier de Guinaumont, EKFB Board Chair said: “2021 is a pivotal year for EKFB, and it is vital that we have the right leadership to take us forward to the next level.

“As we move into the delivery phase of the HS2 project, the timing of these appointments illustrates how EKFB is gearing up for the challenges ahead. The Board is confident that the combination of UK and continental expertise that Peter and Emmanuel bring to Director level will deliver exceptional outcomes.”
