Why Choose RUKHYDRO / Nick Rukin

Clients – As a consultant, Nick has had repeat work from some clients in the public and private sector for more than ten years.

Commercial – VAT Registered and Insured.

Experience – 33 years consultancy experience for a wide range of private industry, regulator and government clients on projects of different sizes and requiring a wealth of skills.

Flexibility – One of these ways of working should be of interest to you:

Hands-On – When you engage Nick to do work, he brings his experience and expertise to all parts of the delivery and not just the management of the work.

Innovative – Sometimes problems require a new approach – Nick has previously developed new approaches for problems associated with e.g. groundwater vulnerability, nitrates impacting public water supplies, the impact of surcharging of landfills, and differentiating between different catchment pollution pressures in complex catchments.

Quality & EMS – Nick has previously worked under ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 and works with these requirements in mind now. See the Quality and EMS page for more information.

Reputation – Nick has written national guidance on groundwater risk assessment, been engaged as a national expert on some aspects of landfill hydrogeology, and given a range of well received presentations at national conferences.

Value – As RUKHYDRO Limited has low overheads, Nick's rate is likely to be much better value for you than someone with his experience in a larger consultancy. Put another way, your money is likely to buy 40-50% more time.

Wider Support – Nick has contacts with a number of other associates and larger consultancies and so can build a wider project team if required.
