Meet the Team

We are a passionate, skilled, and knowledgeable team, with experience working in the conservation, third and commercial sectors. This means that we are uniquely placed to not only deliver high quality commercial projects, but also to work with local people and partners to deliver a lasting legacy as part of every project.

As a team we hold a wide-range of specialist qualifications including:

  • Swiftwater and Flood Rescue Technicians
  • Swiftwater and Flood First Responders
  • Rescue Boat Operators
  • NPTC Chainsaw Operators
  • NPTC Pesticide Application Operatives
  • CITB Operatives and Site Supervisors

We work to high professional standards and are committed to continuous improvement, working to ISO 9001, 14001, 45001 and OHSAS 18001 management systems. We are also CHAS, Property Care Association and Trust Mark accredited.

Our board is chaired by Peter Marsden and consists of Groundwork South Yorkshire, Sheffield City Council, Don Catchment Rivers Trust and independent directors Gerry Arcari and David Gray. In conjunction with the leadership team, the executive team is led by Adam Rollitt, and commercial projects and Riverlution are delivered by our experienced delivery team. Most of our work is delivered in-house, but we also have a fantastic supply chain of partners and subcontractors across the commercial and third sector, to enable us to offer a one-stop-shop for our clients and to deliver as much added-value as possible.
