Matthew Lopaki

QUANTITY surveying and commercial management consultancy, Soben, has launched a mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) division.

The division will be led by newly appointed operations director, Matthew Lopacki. Mr Lopacki has over 40 years’ experience in the MEP services, was previously an estimating director at Skanska Rashleigh Wetherfoil, and also spent 12 years as divisional estimating manager at NG Bailey.

East Kilbride-headquartered Soben has already been providing MEP support to selected clients on major office, technology, and data centre projects across Europe. The firm said that formally appointing Mr Lopacki and launching the MEP division will allow these services to be rolled out to both main contractors and specialist MEP contractors across all of Soben’s market sectors and geographies.

Commenting on his new role Mr Lopacki said, “Joining Soben to head up its MEP division is a great opportunity.  I’m ready to work alongside our key clients to ensure they benefit from our available MEP services.”

Andrew Gallacher, managing director of Soben UK and Europe, said, “Launching our MEP division is the next step on our journey at Soben.  This new division will allow clients to benefit from a range of services that result in greater cost certainty, reduced costs and reduced risks. We’re delighted to have Matthew join us to lead this new and exciting venture for the Soben team.”
