In January 2020, Hughes and Salvidge were awarded a Government project on a secure site near Reading. In order to successfully deliver this project, we have strengthened our team with a few new additions. A few weeks ago, we introduced you to Adam Maunder, our Graduate QS, and now we’re pleased to introduce Chloe Morel, our new Environmental Advisor!
What is your role at Hughes and Salvidge?
I am the Environmental Advisor for Hughes and Salvidge. My role is to maintain excellent Environmental standards and control across demolition projects by ensuring there is complete Environmental compliance with Environmental regulations and targets. My main duties include interpreting and regulating Environmental data collated from projects, performing Environmental surveys including water sampling and legionella surveys, liaising with the client’s Environmental teams and strategically planning ways to keep factors that affect the Environment to a minimum.
What is your background?
I recently graduated with a first-class MSci Ecology (Hons) from the University of Brighton, and alongside my degree I gained various work experience ranging from Ecological Surveying to Environmental Science. I have previous work experience in the UK, South Africa and Borneo, where I had various tasks to collate data for Conservation, Ecological and Environmental Research. My key interests and knowledge are in British wildlife, approaches to sustainability in the work place and handling large Environmental-based datasets.
What are you looking forward to at Hughes and Salvidge?
I’m really looking forward to gaining a new insight into Environmental Management within the Demolition industry and to help create positive changes to the Environment by adopting green and sustainable ways. Not only this, but I am excited to be in a role where every day is different and new challenges or tasks are always arising, to keep me on my toes and learn new things daily.
What are your first impressions of the company and the job role?
Before I started my role at Hughes and Salvidge, I ignorantly thought demolition only had negative effects on the environment, but Hughes and Salvidge instantly proved me wrong and have demonstrated excellent Environmental practices ranging from green waste disposal, reusing and recycling materials and ecological awareness. I am really impressed with the company’s current Environmental attitude and I’m truly honoured to be given the opportunity to work as Hughes and Salvidge’s Environmental Advisor.
What do you like to do away from the office?
I’m always spending my free time outdoors, usually walking my dog, cycling or bird watching, but have recently rediscovered my love for bouldering and hope to keep that up too.
