Based in Manchester, Danny Hope is the Regional Director for Hydrock, a British-owned integrated engineering design, energy and sustainability consultancy. Danny is responsible for overseeing the operations and performance of the firm’s team in the North West, which is 125-strong across offices in Manchester, Hale, Stoke-on-Trent and Birchwood.
With a clear purpose to be a ‘Force for Good’ in the world, Hydrock helps shape places, communities and infrastructure that inspire, respect the environment and, ultimately, deliver societal and asset value for everyone.
As a specialist brownfield regeneration practitioner working right across the built environment, Danny has amassed over 20 years’ experience of working in academia, local government and professional consultancy.
Throughout his career, Danny has worked on projects across a wide range of sectors and has had leading roles on some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects. These include roles as the lead contamination specialist on the Mersey Gateway and Greater Manchester Waste PFI Projects.
This broad range of experience has led to Danny building strong relationships with developers, public sector clients, contractors, consultants and regulatory bodies across the region.
Recognising the natural synergies with Hydrock and the power born of collaboration, Danny joined Business in the Community’s (BITC) North West Leadership Board in April 2023 and is now contributing to its goals to work fairer; work greener; and work together.
Outside of work Danny enjoys spending time with family, fellrunning and cycling.
