The Transportation Consultancy ‘ttc’ is proud to announce the addition of yet another exceptional Transport Planning Consultant, Adrian Simms, who joins the team as an Associate.
Adrian brings with him 15 years of experience in transportation and planning, of which he gained from previous roles at Mode Transport Planning and Wood Group, where he delivered a breadth of both private and public sector projects.
Adrian says, “I am thrilled to have joined the TTC team and to be part of its continued growth and success story. 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’.”
Adrian is a chartered member of the Royal Town Planning Institute (MRPTI) and is a particular specialist in; the Development Planning Process, Disposal Strategies, Site due diligence, Environmental Impact Assessments of road traffic, Construction Traffic Management, Travel Planning and Infrastructure projects.
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”
“Another key project in my career was the ‘Homes England, Surplus Public Sector Land (SPSL) & Accelerated Construction programme. I was the transport lead and part of a multi-disciplinary team responsible for reviewing the development potential of 20+ sites situated throughout the UK. I oversaw the highways section of the report, including identification of ransom/3rd party impacts, offsite improvements, risk identification and mitigation solution and estimates for abnormal costs. I managed all elements of the Transport reporting for three sites which were subsequently taken forward to planning.”
George Bailes, Director, ttc comments, "I’m absolutely delighted to get Adrian on board, he is a massive appointment for the company and brings a wealth of experience from the development control and infrastructure projects from Mode, Wood and AMEC. Adrian is a great fit for the company and I have no doubt he will excel in the role and will contribute to the success of the company as we continue to grow from strength to strength. Adrian has been brought on board to run our Leamington Head office and his experience and hardworking attitude made him the perfect candidate for the role and we are excited for the future.“
