Wardell Armstrong Takes On New Director


Wardell Armstrong International Ltd, the Truro based independent engineering consultancy which specialises in minerals, energy and environmental development and management, has recruited a new Associate Director to head up its seven-strong environmental team.   Martin Ackerley, who has over 20 years experience in consulting, specialist sub-contracting and local government, joins the company from Kerrier District Council where he worked for 10 years as the resident engineer within the environment and engineering service.

Martin will be responsible for contamination assessments, geotechnical investigations and ground engineering, land remediation, as well as environmental impact assessments and integrated pollution prevention and control permitting.

Martin said: “I’ve worked in the public sector for some time but it’s great to work for a company like Wardell Armstrong, which has a highly regarded reputation and a proven track record in the fields of environment, energy and earth resources.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Kerrier District Council but I’m now very much looking forward to this new challenge, which presents me with the opportunity to gain additional experience and broaden my horizons”.

Nick Coppin, Managing Director at Wardell Armstrong International Ltd said: “I am delighted that Martin has agreed to join us; his wealth of experience and local knowledge in environmental engineering is a significant boost to the services we provide to clients.  His appointment is a key part of our growth and ambition to be the foremost technical, environmental, geological, mining and engineering consultants in the southwest Region.

“Since moving from the CSM campus four years ago to Wheal Jane near Truro, we have quadrupled in number to nearly 60 staff. This has been achieved by investing in good people and concentrating on providing a quality service to clients, solving problems and adding significant value to projects.”

Based in Truro, Wardell Armstrong International Ltd is part of the wider Wardell Armstrong Group which has 10 offices around the UK. Its main areas of expertise are mining, energy, environmental planning and brownfield site redevelopment.
