Horizon was pleased to join with Knights Brown to present a brief summary of current legislation and best practice applicable to the management of surplus soil from development sites. Case studies were used to illustrate both high performing projects and lessons that have been learnt, in particular the benefits gained from early team consultation in respect of robust and well planned material management.
We’re delighted to announce Jamie Howourth has joined Horizon. Jamie is a Geoenviromental Engineer with a Masters Degree in Environmental Consulting from Plymouth University and will help expand our capabilities across the geoenvironmental engineering sector.
