Rhodar, a national enabling works provider has made a significant investment in its remediation division through the strategic development of its specialist team.
Rhodar’s appointment of a new geo-environmental engineer, George Roberts, and support of Technical Director Matt Bond’s chartered geologist qualification, ensures the business continues to offer an unrivalled land remediation service to its clients.
George brings with him two years of experience from his previous position, where his role saw him carry out site investigations and subsequent contamination and geo-technical reporting. Initially working as a subcontracted Resident Engineer on Rhodar’s £850,000 Broad Street enabling works project in Birmingham earlier in the year, George impressed the team and was offered a permanent role with the business shortly after.
Matt, who has 17 years’ experience in the investigation and assessment of brownfield land, and helped launch Rhodar’s remediation division, has earned his chartership from the Geological Society of London, specialising in site characterisation and contaminated land remediation. Matt’s status as a chartered geologist cements Rhodar’s market-leading position and underpins the expertise of its unrivalled team of highly skilled remediation specialists.
Commenting on his chartership, Matt Bond said: “There isn’t a mandatory qualification required for remediation and site investigation but this chartership verifies that I am technically competent, backed by the Geological Society of London. It is quality assurance that guarantees Rhodar delivers to the highest standards through investment in its teams.”
George Roberts added: “I am thrilled to have joined Rhodar at such an exciting time for the remediation division. The business’s commitment to personal development and opportunities to progress are a great example of its dedication to employees and an outstanding practice.”
John Davies, Rhodar’s Remediation Director, commented: “Matt has shown that he has the drive and ambition to develop his skills within Rhodar and George has already proven to be a great addition to the team with his experience and knowledge. I’m extremely pleased to have them as part of our team.”
Jason Davy, Managing Director of Rhodar said: “Supporting Matt in obtaining his chartership and appointing George is a continuation of Rhodar’s investment into the remediation division, enabling it to continue to grow and become a key player in national remediation services. I’m very pleased that we are able to offer a rewarding workplace for our teams – something we strive to achieve through our In Pursuit of Excellence programme – and deliver projects to the highest industry standards for our customers.”
