As we start looking forward to things (eventually) returning to normal, we are pleased to announce some great new changes to the professional heritage team at AB Heritage.

Firstly, we are pleased to announce that Daniel Dodds has been promoted to Associate Director of AB Heritage, to reflect his broader oversight role for our team of professional consultants who operate across the UK providing high quality, commercial solutions to help our clients manage their heritage and archaeology project risk.

In this role Daniel Dodds (left) will be responsible for ensuring the team continue to meet day-to-day service delivery needs for clients, including oversight of costings, quality standards, supplier management, scheduling and resourcing.

We are also happy to confirm that our very own Paul Cooke (right) has been promoted to the position of Senior Heritage Consultant. 

With extensive experience in both archaeological investigations and built heritage assessments, Paul has been very busy of late with works in both London and Birmingham, with successful project delivery of a range of complex works in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and multiple works in Bermondsey, Southwark.

Alongside these changes we will also be joined from the start of February by Elli Winterburn (below), who has joined AB Heritage, from Jacobs, in the role of Senior Heritage Consultant. With an impressive background in Heritage Consultancy, including input into works on High Speed 2 and consultancy advice to Walsall Council, Elli has experience of managing input into a wide range of infrastructure projects across the UK, including providing skilled and professional advice on major civil works.

Andy Buckley, MD of AB Heritage, said “these changes are fantastic news and reflect the hard work of the in-house team and strong support of our clients, which I am very proud to say has been rock solid in 2020. While last year was certainly a challenging one for many across the UK, we are already seeing new and existing clients ramping up their own works and speaking to our consultancy team in anticipation of what they feel will be a busy year ahead. These changes at AB Heritage therefore provide a great start to 2021, giving the team an excellent platform to expand our offering to clients across the UK.”

Do you have a project that may have an archaeology or heritage element? Speak to us as early as you can in the process, and ideally before designs are finalised, as the earlier we can understand your aims and aspirations for a scheme, the more we can help you get a grip on heritage requirements, ensuring you are able to better manage future costs and avoid potential project delays.
