Dr Scott Elliott
Scott is our divisional director for our land quality business which delivers geo-environmental and geotechnical services.
With responsibility for the strategic direction and growth of this major business area within Hydrock, Scott takes great pride in ensuring his teams across the UK deliver outstanding client service, both technically and on a practical implementation level, helping clients understand and respond to the risks and opportunities associated with brownfield sites.
With over 20 years’ experience both in the UK and internationally, Scott’s early career included lecturing on engineering geology, hydrogeology and environmental geology at the University of Papua New Guinea. While there he was involved in a number of oil, gas and mining projects, and new road and infrastructure related projects for SMEC (Snowy Mountain Engineering Company).
Working for the Greater Manchester Geological Unit, Scott oversaw the regulatory requirements for the development of the 2002 Commonwealth Games stadia in Manchester and advised Contaminated Land Officers within local authorities on the implications of Part 2a of the Environmental Protection Act.
Since joining Hydrock in 2014, Scott has been influential in our long-standing work with CEMEX and has played a critical role in establishing our presence in northern England with bases in Manchester and Stoke.
