Jason Saldanha

Senior Project Manager

Richard Caten and team have provided an expert and professional service to ensure timely project delivery in coordination with a large, multi-disciplinary team.  All done with a minimum of fuss and with a smile!

Ian Watkins

Project Leader

Having worked with Viki James before in major project consent delivery I knew her skill set would be invaluable in Laing O’Rourke’s ECI role in Sizewell C’s DCO application. Leading as the interface between the Clients planning team and the civil works engineering and construction programme she is ably preparing the team for examination, managing the technical dialogue and decision making, identifying risks and opportunities for delivery and influencing the DCO to preserve cost & programme. She is also a great team player with top communication skills. Her insight of both sides of a major application is not a common skill set and one I value. I would happily recommend Viki and Ardent.

Pete Gettinby

Vattenfall UK Land Manager

Vattenfall have always found Ardent to be proactive, quick to respond, and they deliver work to a high standard; even under tight timescales and programme pressures. We are very pleased with the service and expertise they are currently providing.

Andrew Sissons

Head of Regeneration Delivery

We started to use Ardent following a recommendation and the team has never let us down. They have the knowledge and experience to provide an exceptional service and always give excellent advice, which often leads to elements of the strategy being improved as a result.

David Eve, Queenswood

Development Director

Ardent has been an indispensable partner in the infrastructure project.
