Gerry Manley – Director, CIL Geotechnics Ltd
Steve and I have partnered on over 100 schemes in the past two years, where much of our success in delivery and delighting our clients has been the result of Steve’s professionalism, technical knowledge and pragmatism.
Simon Clark CEng MICE – Private Developer
From the initial email enquiry and agreement of work to be done and the dates by which they were needed, Steve has proven himself to be a very professional engineer, meeting all the requirements ahead of the deadlines agreed. The work involved responding to a number of conditions and overall objection to a planning application, from the Environment Agency and Council’s Lead Local Flood Authority. Steve’s work was properly considered, his report layout was clear and concise and he addressed everything to the extent that there were no further comments and the objections were removed. I highly recommend Steve (and his company) in undertaking civil engineering design work.
Mark Lasance – Contracts Manager, North Midland Construction
I worked with Steve on a £26M Severn Trent waste water infrastructure project in the West Midlands. Steve was the Lead Designer throughout the life of the project. Steve’s expertise and attention to detail proved to be critical in the successful delivery of the scheme. Steve introduced new areas of innovation to the scheme that led to six-figure savings and his financial awareness in design proved beneficial to both client and D&B contractor.
Without hesitation I would recommend Steve for any design role. It was a massive loss to my team when Steve moved to Cornwall. Steve’s knowledge, attention to detail and all-round good character makes him the best in his field. Whoever has Steve working for them can rest assured they have a true asset in their company.
Ed Jordan – Principal Engineer, Mouchel
Steve was very much the backbone of this Mouchel team and took the lead in the technical delivery of a wide range of water-related projects. Steve has a wide knowledge and ability which meant he could manage the input of other disciplines across many offices to deliver the right solution.
He created and maintained strong professional relationships with colleagues in Mouchel and, very importantly, with the client’s staff. He understood the limitations of project budgets and supported me in ensuring they were managed effectively. He also showed a great aptitude in passing on his knowledge and skills to more junior members of the team.
Overall, having Steve in the team gave me great confidence and reassurance that we were delivering high-quality and well-managed solutions to our clients.
Astrid Warmington – Recruitment Consultant, Beresford Blake Thomas & Randstad
Steve Parker is an extremely diligent, professional and focused individual who puts enormous energy into his work. He is highly conscientious with an extremely successful track record of employment working for major players within the water industry.
I have known Steve for more than 15 years and he was placed on several different contract assignments during this period. The references from our clients with whom he worked were exceptional, always painting a picture of Steve as a highly talented engineer and a strong communicator who added value to each assignment that he worked on.
Moreover, Steve integrates well with all team members and has an affable nature to complement his strong work ethic and reputation for getting results.
