Gary Roberts

I am a consulting engineer in the water and environmental management sector with over 19 years experience in engineering consultancy. My area of expertise is in river engineering, land drainage and water control with a solid understanding of the appraisal and design of engineering solutions and construction management and supervision.

My work covers the full project life cycle from strategy studies, project appraisals and production of business cases to detailed engineering designs and construction delivery.  Projects have included flood risk management, water level control, hydraulic engineering, land drainage, inland navigation and waterways, habitat creation and environmental enhancement schemes.

I am currently seconded to several clients including the Environment Agency and Internal Drainage Boards providing Technical Advisory support and advice in flood risk management and water management roles.  As part of my Environment Agency secondment I am helping to develop a 15 year Strategic Outline Programme for the Cambridgeshire Fenlands area to provide continued FCERM asset management for all Risk Management Authorities in the Fens area.  This includes developing a methodology for apportioning benefits between RMA assets to avoid the risk of double counting of benefits.
