Clear Environmental Consultants Limited was founded in 2003 as a specialist consultancy in wastewater and environmental management. Clear was founded by Andrew Clements, David De Rosa and Jamie Margetts with the aim of creating a team of specialists and technical experts to deliver high quality, cost effective and innovative services.
Clear has been successful and has grown to service a number of UK Water Companies through direct framework appointments, plus a number of major public and private sector clients. Our success has been achieved by remaining true to our principles of delivering quality in an efficient manner.
As a small business, one of our key strengths is that all senior staff and management remain fully ‘hands-on’ and engaged in technical project delivery with both staff and clients. Clear’s staff provide a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise that is used to deliver pragmatic solutions in wastewater and environmental management.
