"Chris and I have collaborated on numerous environmental and sustainable development projects over the last ten years or so, initially as colleagues in Frank L. Benson and Partners, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, and more recently through Chris’s membership of the All-Island LCA CPD Steering Group, established in 2009. This Steering Group, which consists of representatives from 10 professional institutes (north and south), guided the design and delivery of the award-winning, multi-disciplinary LCA CPD training course entitled – ‘Introduction to Landscape Character Assessment/LCA (including Historic Landscape Characterisation/HLC)’. Chris has also provided technical advice to the Heritage Council in relation to the proposed Slane By-Pass (N2). Chris is unflappable under pressure and he always delivers beyond the brief. The quality of his work is excellent and his meticulous attention to detail is recognised by both his colleagues and clients alike. I look forward to continuing to work with Chris and to collaborating on future innovative environmental projects in Ireland and elsewhere."
