Jim O’Donnell – Director

Jim started his career with Cox Turner Morse in 1982 and quickly progressed to the position of Senior Engineer. Jim was sponsored by Cox Turner Morse to attend University College Cardiff, where in 1990 he obtained his First Class Honours Degree in Civil and Structural Engineering. On his return to work he was responsible for designing and delivering a number of major projects in the region. After leaving Cox Turner Morse, Jim gained a varied experience working with South West Water and Schlumberger, becoming involved with major civil and marine engineering projects.

On his return to Birmingham in 1994, Jim became a founding Partner of ECI Consulting Civil and Structural Engineers, where he spent 11 years until the Practice merged with Cox Turner Morse in 2005. As a Board Director, Jim was responsible for leading major projects across all sectors of the Industry. During the re-organisation of the Business in 2011 Jim co-founded CWA with his fellow incumbent Director, Dave Copeland and Steve Wedge, formerly of Mansell Construction. Jim continues with his hands on approach to the business and strives to deliver projects with passion, commitment and of course a smile.
