Leading landscape and soil consultancy Tim O’Hare Associates (TOHA) has further enhanced its team of specialists by welcoming geologist Matthew Heins to its Oxfordshire-based practice.
Originally from South Africa, where his degrees in Geology and Geography led to employment in geological exploration and mining consultancy, Matthew joined Tim O’Hare Associates in February 2018 when he moved to the UK. His role at TOHA is already utilising his broader business development experience as he identifies upcoming projects where TOHA’s extensive soil surveying and site investigation, testing and analysis, design and specification, planning and monitoring, and other specialist soil services can be employed.
Speaking about Matthew’s arrival, Tim O’Hare, principal consultant at TOHA, said: “The team at TOHA is very much enjoying having Matthew on board. His background in site investigation will strengthen the TOHA consultancy team and he has also brought new impetus to our business development activities. Our reputation has delivered much of our work to date but we must never be complacent and Matthew’s role will ensure we continue to engage proactively with existing and potential clients.”
Matthew said: “Joining TOHA has given me an amazing opportunity to learn more about soils whilst contributing my own knowledge and experience of geology to the team. It’s a privilege to work alongside my TOHA colleagues and I hope I will be able to help generate further business opportunities for them, working on some of the most iconic and influential landscape projects in the UK and further afield.”
