We are very sad to have to share the news that Kate Hollins our former director, passed away yesterday. Kate brought enormous energy and positivity to her work and colleagues. She was a very important part of growing our ecology team, from 1995 until 2017. Kate was instrumental in many of our major projects from the Bridge at Dartford to Prologis Park Coventry, sites with complex ecological issues. Kate always found solutions, never problems and was an inspiration to the people in the teams she managed. Kate lived with her illness for many years, but always carried on doing what she could, and enjoying life to the full. She will be very sadly missed by all who worked with, and knew her.
