The Prime teamPrime Transport Planning has recruited senior planner Daniel Bimpson to build up the fledgling company's planning team.

The consultancy, launched this spring, has recruited Bimpson from multidisciplinary firm Aecom to work in its Liverpool office.

Prime was founded by director Dave Schumacher and associate director Mark Clements, both from Gladman Developments. The consultancy has seven planners.

The team specialises in transport statements, assessments and travel plans, as well as advising on access, vehicle routing, masterplanning, sustainable travel and highway capacity.

Bimpson said: “There’s currently a lot of opportunities out there for transport planners.

"With a strong order book and an appetite to grow the business, I’m looking forward to working in the north west.”
