TTC has a diverse client network across the UK and I’m excited to help grow this area of the business. I enjoy being part of a project team that supports, delivers, and exceeds client expectations. I take great satisfaction in building strong client relationships and providing independent and commercially focused consultancy advice. This is what led me to join ‘ttc’.”

Over his career, Adrian has provided support and held lead Transport Planning roles on a wide range of transportation projects such as; National Grid’s Overhead Line Refurbishment project in North Yorkshire spanning six local authorities; Homes England Surplus Public Sector Land (SPSL) & Accelerated Construction programme; Vattenfall’s Development Consent Order application for the extension of Thanet Offshore Wind Farm and numerous key positions advising clients in their commercial and residential real estate development planning applications.  

Adrian reflects, “A particularly large and high profile project that I worked on was the National Grid, Overhead Line (OHL) Refurbishment project in North Yorkshire that involved supporting National Grid in providing traffic and transport advice in relation to the ‘full’ fittings replacement of an OHL spanning six local authorities. I was the lead transport planner and key point of contact between the site team and the local highway authorities. I managed the delivery of Traffic Management Plans, PRoW Management Plans and live road space bookings for this infrastructure project. Tasks involved financial management, invoicing and technically reviewing work undertaken by junior personnel. It was a great project to be involved in due to the challenges, learning and professional growth I gained from being a part of it”
