Speaker: Patrick Smith, Aquatic Consultant, Ustigate  

Patrick’s career has been dedicated to the enhancement of green and blue infrastructure for twenty years. It is a career that began in the horticultural trade, working with scientists to produce award winning compost to promote thriving plants and led to Patrick working closely with Staffordshire University to evidence plants reduce particulate matter in our atmosphere and noise pollution. This peer reviewed research lead to several green living walls and roofs being established in Victoria, London; resulting in an end to localised flash flooding, cleaner air, a nicer and quieter Victoria environment and an award presented by Mayor of London Boris Johnson in 2012. Patrick’s specialist role as aquatic consultant has enabled Patrick to positively influence a number of places in the UK with a combination of inclusive water attractions. Recent project examples include Hastings Rock, a misting water feature with LED lighting on Hastings seafront and Montrose Splash Park.
