Founded in 2000, Ecologia established its headquarters at Kent Science Park, in Swale, part of Thames Gateway, and has built an expert in-house team of qualified scientists, engineers, chemists and geologists.
The company now supports its customers with site and ground investigation, remediation, geotechnical and drilling services to the development and construction industry. Ecologia also operates an emergency response service to deal with environmental accidents and provides services to the insurance industry.
Originally a spin-out from the University of Kent, Ecologia today employs more than 60 people at its headquarters, and offices in the Midlands, South West of England and operations in North Ireland and Italy.
Giacomo Maini, Managing Director of Ecologia, said:
“Kent offers us excellent access to potential customers in London and across the South East, and a great location from which to manage our network of offices.
“With the development and construction industry now emerging from the economic downturn, and with government investment in infrastructure projects such as Crossrail beginning to flow, our business is getting stronger and we are actively recruiting.
“Demand for housing is high across the South East, meaning that our site work for housebuilders is also on the rise, giving us renewed confidence for the future growth of Ecologia.”
Ecologia is currently in talks with Kent Science Park to expand its operations on site, with the prospect of having a new headquarters designed and constructed for it based on the Park’s successful Tech Unit style of building.
James Speck, Site Director of Kent Science Park, said:
“Ecologia is one of the many companies on site who have through their business acumen and technology, combined with our location and support of our estate team, created a resilient Kent success story.”
