Our Team > Hannah Smith

7Hannah joined SWM as Young Director in November 2020. Hannah is a chartered Town Planner (MRTPI), working at Arup in Solihull. Through her career so far, Hannah has predominantly worked in community impact assessment, environmental design and environmental impact assessment for major infrastructure developments. Recently she has been supporting social housing and infrastructure providers to understand how their ‘business as usual’ work can be leveraged to have net zero, environmental gain, and social value benefits.

Within Arup Hannah is  part of the Sustainability and Resilience Hub in the Midlands, focusing specifically on embedding social value within all of Arup’s projects alongside other key pillars of net zero carbon, human health and wellbeing, circular economy, community resilience and planetary boundaries. Through her role with SWM Hannah would like to focus on ensuring our solutions to our most difficult sustainability problems are inclusive, and ideally focused on co-creation with the most marginalised.
