The new company will offer a wide range of environmental advice, design solutions and strategic direction to support sustainable and resilient infrastructure development.
Air Quality Consultants was established in 1993 and has become the UK’s leading independent specialist air quality and climate change consultancy. The launch of Noise Consultants in 2017 has allowed a joined-up approach to be offered to clients to meet their air quality and noise assessment requirements.
Logika Consultants will provide further complementary services to help clients to navigate the often complex and challenging path of environmental legislation, policy and regulation associated with gaining planning consent for development, to complement advice given by planners and lawyers.
Logika will also provide environmental design solutions to its clients by working with architects and engineers to support the development of proposals that have environmental measures fully embedded within them. These measures could, for example, improve flood management, increase biodiversity, reduce air pollution and noise, or help create beautiful places that improve the health and wellbeing of the people that use them. The key aim is to develop solutions that are most likely to add value and achieve planning consent in a cost-effective manner.
Logika Consultants will be led by Toby Gibbs, who was formerly the Global Environmental Sciences Service Line at Wood plc, responsible for the technical output of over 1,700 environmental scientists. He is an expert in providing strategic environmental advice to help clients navigate complicated environmental legislation and policy. Toby has also had key roles in the Environmental Impact Assessments of a number of major projects requiring a Development Consent Order (DCO).
Welcoming Toby, Chris Whall, Managing Director of Air Quality Consultants said:
“We are delighted that Toby has joined us to lead our environmental strategy practice. He brings significant technical experience and specialist skills in areas from aviation to planning and development projects. Toby has a reputation for managing and delivering robust and innovative solutions and ensuring that sustainability is at the heart of successful planning applications. His technical expertise coupled with his focus on quality and excellent service are the same core values that have led Air Quality Consultants and Noise Consultants to their positions as leading specialist consultancies in the UK."
Toby Gibbs said:
“I am delighted to be leading Logika Consultants. The team at Air Quality Consultants and Noise Consultants is renowned for the expert knowledge and the excellent service provided to its clients across a wide-range of sectors. I’m looking forward to developing the environmental strategy practice and delivering integrated design solutions that enhance the environment.”
