4th Generation of Longley Family
Longley Concrete is delighted to announce that the fourth generation of the Longley family will be joining the company in June. Luke Longley will be taking on the role of Project Manager at a time which also sees the family-run business celebrate its 70th year of operation.
After graduating from Durham University with a Batchelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering in 2008 Luke began his career at Atkins as a Civil Engineer in their Rail Division. There he undertook a variety of roles throughout the UK, from civil and structural design of concrete and steel structures, to engineering and project management of large multidisciplinary projects.
In 2015 Luke joined Network Rail as a Senior Development Manager, responsible for early stage planning and development of large scale railway projects in London and the South East. This role required significant stakeholder engagement with developers, councils, MPs and a variety of government bodies to obtain funding and gain support to deliver the schemes.
Managing Director, Michael Longley commented “Luke has a wealth of engineering experience which will be of huge benefit to the company and is also a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers. We look forward to welcoming him and his family back to the North as part of the Longley team.”
