Both Tibbs and Evans will be working on a number of projects for Urban Green, including Alderley Park for PJ Livesey, and Failsworth Cemetery and Park for Oldham Council.
In its ecology team, Urban Green has hired Rosie McEwing as assistant ecologist following a six-month internship. She previously worked as a research assistant at the University of Sheffield and the University of Manchester.

They all bring valuable expertise and experience which will enable us to grow and diversify our business.
