Atkins has appointed Costain director John Batterbee to lead its new Applied Technology Practice, formed to meet growing demand for digital and technology capabilities across Atkins’ markets.

“John’s appointment will help us bring together a seamless end-to-end set of services to help our clients harness the power of data and technology, and digitally transform with agility, pace and resilience.”
