Consultancy's waste team grows by one third in 10 months

Consultancy's waste team grows by one third in 10 months

The waste team at a respected engineering, environmental and planning consultancy has grown by one third in the last ten months.

And the rapid expansion at Caulmert reflects a move by clients away from big, general practices to niche operators capable of hiring first class expertise, says associate director, Andy Stocks.

Today, Caulmert’s waste team totals nine specialists, following recruitment of three additional personnel within the last year.

Based in the company’s Nottingham office, they are currently working on waste and minerals schemes as varied as: waste water treatment, CHP biomass plant, landfill restoration and closure, leachate treatment facilities, soils treatment facilities, and handling of mining waste. 

Andy, who heads up the waste team, said: “Twenty years ago, many of the big consultancies had dedicated waste teams. As landfill has declined, a lot of those major players decided to focus away from not just landfill, but waste overall, so they just don’t have the specialists any more.

“Today, clients are finding that fewer firms are offering in-depth expertise from people that have worked in waste all their lives. 

“At Caulmert, not only do we have a team with high levels of qualifications and knowledge, but in addition, we’ve recruited and retained people with plenty of experience working for waste management companies. 

“Our clients appreciate this, because it gives them confidence that we have a proper understanding of, not just the theory and the technology, but also the pressures and commercial needs operators work under.”

Andy added: “Our track record for undertaking successful permit applications is particularly good, as we have the expertise to offer sound pre-application advice to the client, to ascertain the best route to secure a permit, and to advise on regulatory costs both pre- and post-application/determination.” 

Founded in 2009, Caulmert is an employee-owned company that reinvests the majority of its profits in the business, to help to sustain growth and for personal and professional development of its employees.

The consultancy works across the UK from the Hebrides to the Isle of Wight, and counts among its clients FCC, Viridor, Tarmac, Yorwaste, and Essex County Council. It also has bases in Bangor, St Asaph, Altrincham and Maidstone.

In addition to waste management, it provides a variety of planning, environmental, and engineering services, and is supported by the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes and modelling to meet PAS1192 level 2.
