Walker Construction and Invvu Construction Consultants
Correct as of September 2018.
"I am proud of being a Chartered Environmentalist, as it elevates me as an authority within my business and the Environment in which the business operates.
Everything these days is based around competency and the Chartered Environmentalist registration is one simple method of demonstrating such, as well as having access to and support from such a recognised Institution."
Fourteen years ago, Chartered Environmentalist Kevin Hogwood moved to Walker construction to develop their design & build capability, in his capacity as a Building Services Design Engineer. He is now a Director for both Walker Construction and its former in-house multi-disciplinary design team Invvu Construction Consultants, with both companies operating in the fields of Civil Engineering, Commercial Building Construction and the Rail Industry.
Environmental issues are part of everyday activities within the Construction Industry covering areas such as Energy Usage, Waste Management, Recycling, Endangered Species, Protection of Flora & Fauna and more. Both Kevin and Invvu Construction Consultants are regularly involved with these issues, and often have to procure documents such as “Waste Management Reports & Management Plans” and “Environmental Impact Plans”. Being recognised as a professional, and the use of the post-nominal letters CEnv, allows Kevin to demonstrate that a high level of competency has been applied to the procurement of such documents.
As a member of the Institution of Engineering Designers, Kevin recommends the CEnv registration to fellow engineering designers, particularly those involved in compliance within the industry, and those working “at the coal-face”. Looking towards the future, Kevin intends to develop his competency further and to continue being a focal point within Walker Construction for advice and guidance.
