Reflecting on UKREiiF 2023

Last week, Thomson environmental consultants attended the UK’s biggest real estate and infrastructure event, UKREiiF. For the second year running, we joined other professionals from across the country, at the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Daniel Reynolds discussing BNG at UKREiiF 2023

Thomson’s Daniel Reynolds, Director of Business development, attended the event across all 3 days and said, “UKREiiF presented brilliant opportunities to meet with clients and hear their unique requirements for bespoke project support. We also enjoyed talking about future collaborations and joint venture opportunities on larger scale projects.

 Industry discussion across the event focussed heavily on biodiversity legislation and how it is rapidly changing beneath out feet. Talks also touched on the ever-growing demand for nature-based solutions and the need for specialist support to advise and deliver against emerging requirements.”

A massive thank you to the organisers for such an amazing week and to everyone who stopped to chat to our team. We look forward to continuing the discussions, with the new connections we have made, as we work together to enable business and nature to thrive together!
