We are pleased to announce Darcy Kitson-Boyce has joined our team as the head of geo-environmental engineering in our Nottingham office.
With more than 12 years’ experience, Darcy is determined to continue our sustainable focus and meet the rising demand for environmental support in the East Midlands city. Darcy joins us with his own ethos to bring a pragmatic approach to geo-environmental engineering and to help clients understand and manage ground-related risks.
On joining our team, Darcy said: “Joining a well-respected business like Rodgers Leask is always going to be a moment of pride, but joining at such an important time makes it even more exciting. Across the next 12 months, we anticipate the start of multiple large projects in the local area, presenting more opportunity for us to offer our support and expert guidance on all ground-engineering matters.
“Behind the scenes, I will be building a dedicated geo-environmental engineering team that will work alongside our other disciplines in Nottingham, the wider Midlands region and beyond. I resonate with the values that Rodgers Leask operates with, which will be vital as I move forward not only representing the business but also helping it grow.
“Geo-Environmental engineering has been held back in the past by poor communication, so we as a discipline must continue raising awareness of how we can help solve wider industry issues. Risks in the ground can have huge implications on the success of a scheme; this is a simple, key message that should influence stakeholders to prioritise early engagement and involve us from the outset. We can of course assist at any stage of development, but we can certainly add most value if we’re involved from the very beginning.”
Our new associate director spent a decade based in the South East working across various sectors, and on several high-profile, multi-million-pound projects, including the new Sky Film Studios in Borehamwood, Highgate Hospital in London and several landfill redevelopment schemes. He also has a wealth of experience providing geotechnical engineering input on complex basement developments across London.
As a chartered environmentalist and qualified person under CL:AIRE’s Definition of Waste Code of Practice for Waste Soils, Darcy is demonstrably committed to brownfield regeneration and sustainable development.
Our managing director, Paul Spencer, said: “Darcy’s ambitions are aligned with what we want to achieve at Rodgers Leask so we’re very pleased he has decided to join us as we look to take the next steps for the Nottingham office. It’s rare to find people with Darcy’s level of experience and expertise, so this is testament to the hard work of all our teams across the country helping to raise our profile and make sure professionals across the industry know who we are and what we do.”
