It’s incredibly rewarding to receive a resolution to grant for a major opportunity site we’ve been working on for a number of years. Even better when it’s for up to 1,100 new homes! Associate Planner, Zoe Knott, explains how we achieved this result in Daventry, in the latest of our ‘Year in Review’ Series.
It’s no secret 2020 and 2021 have been challenging years so far. For several Nexans, juggling personal and professional lives while working full-time from home hasn’t been easy. In this clip, Associate Director Heather Lindley-Clapp shares her experiences of the past year, and explains how she’s got through it with the support of her team.
We’re privileged to work on a broad range of interesting projects at Nexus, across a number of different industries. Principal Planner Hywel James talks about a distinctive piece of work we recently completed for the film industry.
Together with the Reading team, Hywel secured planning permission for the expansion of commercial filming operations at internationally renowned film and television studio, Bray Studios, in Berkshire. The TV series now being produced is expected to be one of the biggest of all time, up alongside Game of Thrones!
In the latest instalment of our ‘Nexus: Year in Review’ Series, Amy Petrikova, shares her story. A Principal Planner at Nexus since 2013, Amy took some time off work to travel a few years ago and sadly suffered a life-changing accident. Returning to work wasn’t easy. Hear how Amy has overcome these challenges through the support of those around her.
The second in our ‘Year in Review’ series, today we hear from Graduate Planner, Sophie Bleasdale. Sophie joined Nexus straight out of university and assists the Manchester team with a wide range of projects. In this clip, she discusses one of her first projects: an application on behalf of the NHS Property Services, which will see the demolition of a rundown and surplus clinic to make way for new, much needed family homes.
We’re thrilled to announce our ‘Nexus: Year in Review’ Series! Each week, we will be sharing stories about the people and projects that make Nexus – filmed by each person using their own equipment, predominantly during lockdown. In the year that we’ve been privileged to be RTPI Planning Consultancy of the Year 2020, there have been some challenges but also, thankfully, some real highlights!
To kick-start the series, we hear from Managing Director, Roger Tustain, to give us some insights on how Nexus has evolved since it started in 2013, and what the past year has been like for the team.
