SENRGY Graduate wins 'Young Environmental Engineer of the Year' 2011.
BSc Environmental Science Graduate, James Regan, recently won The Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) 2011 award of 'Young Environmental Engineer of the Year'.
The award is made annually to an engineer under 35 years of age who has made a significant contribution to environmental engineering.
James, a Senior Geo-environmental Engineer with Sirius Midlands, submitted a project concerning turning a vacant and derelict brownfield site into a safely habitable site.
James said “The majority of work undertaken by geo-environmental engineers involves the assessment, investigation and remediation/reclamation of sites which have been damaged and contaminated by historical industrial activities. Within any typical week, my work takes me through a range of tasks including environmental survey inspections, site audits, site investigations, risk assessments and meetings with regulators."
James recently gained Chartered Environmentalist status.
