Nick Hawkins - Managing Director
Nick is a multidisciplinary Environmental Consultant. Nick studied at UEA Norwich before gaining a Master's Degree in Environmental Science from the University of Southampton. Nick began his career working as a hydrological engineer, but soon became involved in other aspects of environmental assessment, principally noise, vibration, air quality and daylighting.
During the last ten years, Nick has worked on the environmental assessment of a variety of projects, including some large prestigious projects in the rail, highway, aviation and wind energy sectors. These projects include the Thameslink rail scheme, the expansion of Dublin's Luas Line tram network, the M25 widening and the expansion of Bournemouth Airport. However, Nick frequently works on smaller scale projects, typically residential, mixed use, educational and healthcare schemes and will often manage all of the environmental assessments, including noise, air quality and flood risk assessments.
