nlhEnvironmental was created by Nancy Hyne in 2017. As a qualified Structural Engineer, she began her career working on a number of projects across the UK and Middle East before travelling to Australia in 2007 where she worked for Arup in Sydney.
It was during this time that Nancy worked on the environmentally conscious Darling Walk Development on Sydney’s Darling Harbour. It was her involvement in this 6 Star Green Star project which boasts a triple-generation system, simultaneously producing electricity, heating and cooling, a rainwater harvesting system and wastewater recycling facilities, where her passion for sustainability began.
Since then her passion has developed but her commitment to sustainability remains the same. Her in-depth knowledge of buildings, coupled with her belief that buildings should be enjoyed as an integral part of their surroundings and by the people who use them is at the core of her business.
A move from London to Hampshire in 2016 was the catalyst for setting up nlhEnvironmental. Nancy runs her business from Lymington in the New Forest but serves clients across the UK.

Nancy was a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in commending her work."Stephen Holford – EMEA Infrastructure Manager, Bloomberg LP
