Landscape architect Ryder Landscape Consultants, Chester, has appointed three new staff members to help manage its growing portfolio of landscape visual impact and assessment work.
Chantelle Martin, formerly of RSK, has joined the team as a chartered landscape architect. She has worked on a number of large and small scale wind farm developments and more recently the second phase of HS2, she will be taking a leading role in RLC's expanding team.
Laura Mason, formerly a GIS Practitioner at RPS Group, joins RLC to continue to grow and diversify the practices services. Andrea Davies has also joined the practice as office manager to help support the team with its growing portfolio of work.
Stuart Ryder, director, said: "As our portfolio of projects continues to grow we are seeing more clients being asked to assess the landscape effects of their developments in greater detail and earlier in the development cycle. Chantelle and Laura bring with them a depth of knowledge that will allow us to continue to deliver highly focussed and effective support to our clients."
Jonathan Miley has recently been promoted to associate and will be heading up the practice's team of designers as they work on a diverse mix of projects including public realm, schools, care homes, housing and flood defence.
He said: "Our portfolio continues to grow and diversify and we are receiving enquires for new work on an almost daily basis, we continue to work with clients across the UK and we are looking to the future with optimism."
The company now employs eight staff.
