REC appoints the Chair of the CIWEM Contaminated Land Network as Managing Director
As part of ongoing strategic expansion, Resource and Environmental Consultants Ltd (REC) are delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Winder as a new Managing Director.
Gary specialises in contaminated land and the redevelopment of brownfield sites, and has over 20 years experience as an environmental consultant. Throughout his extensive career, he has managed several major projects, including the extensive residential redevelopment of vacant port land in the North West of England, and the redevelopment of a number of former industrial sites.
As a Chartered Engineer and Chair of the CIWEM (Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management) Contaminated Land Network, Winder’s expertise has been called upon during planning and public enquiries and arbitration disputes.
With an existing service range in contaminated land investigation, redevelopment of brownfield land, geotechnical engineering, flood risk management, asbestos testing, air quality monitoring, acoustics and ecology, REC aims to draw on the expertise of their wider Groups in order to respond to future demands.
Gary Winder said of REC’s future objectives:
“As the UK economy continues to recover and grow, REC is well placed to further develop its business and we see great opportunity to both grow our existing business as well as diversify our service offerings into new regions and indeed new markets and sectors.
We also plan to deliver measures that will be needed to mitigate the effects of climate change and address how increasing population growth will put pressure on the environment. This will allow us to focus on the sustainability of habitats as well as food security, water supply and waste management”.
