Another Big Leap for TEP in the Midlands!

TEP’s growth in the Midlands and Eastern Shires continues apace.  Stuart Burke has been promoted to an Associate Director in charge of our 12-strong Market Harborough office having been with TEP for many years.  We have made four new appointments too.

Jess Lodge has joined us as an arboricultural consultant.  A graduate from Pershore College, in her previous employment she surveyed trees associated with highways. She will broaden that experience into trees associated with development land and public open space.

Amir Bassir and Lucy Brown have strengthened our heritage team.  Amir is a senior consultant and Lucy is a graduate consultant.  Amir has previously worked at Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) and since 2006 has been as a field archaeologist, illustrator, and historic buildings specialist.  In the latter role, he has undertaken numerous surveys of a wide range of historic buildings; from the medieval to the modern period.  Most recently he undertook an extensive and detailed survey of Canons Ashby House in Northamptonshire and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Architectural History.

Lucy has a master’s degree in Social History from Edinburgh University and a master’s degree in English Local History.  She joined TEP from the University of Leicester Archaeological Service.

Our landscape management team has been bolstered with the arrival of William Clow as a graduate landscape manager.  William has a degree in Conservation with Natural Resources Management from Harper Adams University.  He will work on our land and risk management consultancy with Homes England and also write landscape management plans for new housing developments.

Stuart comments: “Our Midlands team is truly multi-disciplinary, offering landscape, ecology, heritage and arboriculture services from East Anglia across to the Welsh Marches.  It’s a great privilege for me to lead a group of highly-motivated and skilled professionals committed to working together for our clients’ interests”.
