“Steve and I worked together on a range of build environment consultancy projects and several large scale government funding schemes designed to increase rollout and quality of renewable generation installations within the UK. Scheme budgets ranged from c£10m for CERT and CESP to c£131m for the LCBP Phase 2.

I enjoyed working with Steve as he is a diligent and reliable engineer and a colleague I could trust to manage projects and the delivery of work packages. He regularly offered well thought out options to deliver work and opinions during workplace discussions. He has a calm approach and is unphased by challenging environments. I remember that he was particularly good at discussing requirements, updates and outcomes with difficult clients. From a workplace perspective he is a solid performer.

His passion and knowledge about sustainable water use sets him apart from many other consultants I have worked with. I welcome the opportunity to work with him again.”

“Steve provided data analysis and dissemination related to customers in vulnerable situations as part of our PR19 business plan submission. The task was complex and required understanding the various input data that provided deprivation data. He was then able to relate this large and complex data-set to geographic locations in our customer catchment areas, and present South East Water with the data to enable us to help support customers in vulnerable situations. The project output was included in our formal business plan submission to OFWAT. I highly recommend Steve at Water2050.”
