    Director

    “Chas has an MSc in Sustainability & Management (distinction) from the University of London. He has a background in running successful not-for-profit organisations in the environmental sector and the arts, both in the UK and abroad. He has written articles and reviews for a number of publications, including the environmentalist (the flagship magazine for the Institute for Environmental Management and Assessment). He is a former governor of the local secondary school and a director of Ham United Group. “Richmond is in many ways a unique borough in its awareness of environmental issues and fertile ground for community action to combat climate change. Personally, I believe strongly in the need for communities to take local action to reduce our collective carbon footprint – I have run three volunteer-based projects in Richmond to help residents make their homes more energy-efficient (Street Champions project in the Ham & Petersham Low Carbon Zone) and spent several years as the Managing Director of Ham Hydro CIC. My current role is ‘Deputy Managing Director’, supporting the Managing Director and covering general planning and environmental issues.””

    Jean Loveland

    Director

    “I have lived in Ham since 1997 and since 2006 been involved in many environmental projects. These have been really diverse but the single most important thing that crops up is we have to find a way to embrace nature and work with her to ensure a sustainable future. It is time to look at things in a different way and prepare us for the exciting future whilst being respectful of our history. We need to nurture our young residents and get them involved – our present and what we treasure is perhaps not what our children will. We need to find a way of embracing new technologies, caring for our environment but ensuring we leave a heritage for our children. Listening and engaging is key, and it is about aiming high together. Not everything will be possible, but no-one should have their concerns/ideas pushed aside or dismissed out of hand. Importantly let’s not say NO, but look at finding a way to make things happen! I am very privileged that my passion and community engagement has enabled me to have access to those people who help to form policies and have some interesting debates. My strength is linking people and communities.”

    Martin runs BCAI Services Limited, which is a UK health and safety consultancy, providing support for small to medium enterprise on all aspects of health and safety and risk management. BCAI’s core strength is that it fully understands business compliance and provides practical, uncomplicated solutions that reduce the burden to businesses by underpinning the basic foundations for health and safety management system. “The Teddington & Ham Hydro Project provides a unique opportunity to be involved in major influential project for the benefit of the local community. I feel very honoured in being able to employ my knowledge, experience and skills in order to participate as a team member in taking this ambitious concept, and lead it to fruition. The success of this project is for future generations of Teddington, it does not just providing sustainable energy, but an iconic local landmark that many people will see and talk about in the future ahead. It would be nice to see it running many years from now, as the weir has done over many years.”

    Mike Morris

    Mike Morris is a retired Civil Engineer and Urban Designer and has spent much of his professional life managing the design or construction of infrastructure projects. Mike is the Planning Manager for the scheme.
    I became interested in conservation work whilst volunteering for the National Trust and this has led to a commitment to renewable energy. It would be a great achievement to get a turbine installed on the Thames at Teddington, not only as a demonstration projects but to show what is possible. The benefits and also the difficulties of construction will be documented so that others can learn from the experience and take on other challenges to rebalance our effect on the environment.

    Paul Cattermole

    Paul is helping drive the scheme’s concept design development. He originally trained as a product and furniture designer at Kingston University where his collaborative studio work scooped the inaugural Peugeot Student Design Award. Having worked in the commercial furniture industry, he returned to Kingston in 2001 to take a research post at renowned specialist architectural picture library, Arcaid, later rising to become its Creative Director. Drawing upon Arcaid’s extensive collections, Paul wrote his highly acclaimed first book, ‘Buildings For Tomorrow‘, which was published by Thames & Hudson in 2006 and subsequently translated into three languages.
    He now works as a full-time writer and researcher at international architectural firm, CivicArts, and is responsible for the contextual cultural research that informs the practice’s design process, with a particular emphasis on the historic evolution of the built environment. Much of the firm’s work deals with sensitive waterfront regeneration, and Paul has been heavily involved with schemes for Queen’s Island, Belfast, and at Silvertown in London, where his research has uncovered a forgotten engineering masterpiece of the Victorian era: the ground-breaking Hydraulic Graving Dock. He continues to write widely, and has recently completed his sixth book, ‘Building Titanic Belfast’: the official record of the history and design evolution of the world’s largest Titanic-themed visitor attraction. Designed by CivicArts, it attracted over 800,000 visitors to the former shipyards in its first year alone, and forms the cultural core of the future Titanic Quarter.
    A Ham resident for over 8 years, Paul well appreciates the unique setting of our proposed hydro scheme, and is helping the team devise a design vocabulary that responds to the existing architecture of lock and weir.
