Lucy Pedler | Director

Lucy started both The Green Register (TGR) and her architectural practice in 2000 when her children were 3 and 5 - she attributes the creation of these two new companies to sleep deprivation at the time.

From a desk in her spare bedroom, TGR has grown to be what Lucy had hoped it would be - a successful nationwide organisation promoting sustainable building practices. Lucy has had the pleasure of working with some very committed people and The Green Register team are second to none.

Lucy uses her architectural experience to inform the activities of TGR - understanding what training construction professionals need has contributed to the success of the organisation.

When not working with the TGR team, Lucy runs her own small architectural development company, focussing on providing affordable, small-but-perfectly-designed eco houses for those struggling to get on the first rung of the housing ladder. Lucy also enjoys cycling, cooking and walking in the great outdoors.

Birgit Nicklitzsch | Events & Office Manager

Birgit joined The Green Register in 2010 as Membership and Events Co-ordinator. After many years experience working in events planning and marketing within the legal sector, she left the corporate world with an aim to work for an organisation which pushes for ethical choices and sustainability above profit.

Various roles at a range of third sector organisations followed, along with some invaluable time spent travelling, before she had the chance to join The Green Register. It was a perfect fit. Not to mention that construction pros are a lot more easy-going than lawyers!

When not at work Birgit looks after her family and fits in a bit of diy, yoga and gardening whenever she has a chance.



Elaine Quinn | Event Coordinator

Elaine has been working part time with The Green Register since 2011. Co-ordinating events and venues, and also involved in the membership. Elaine is very much a core part of The Green Register.

With a back ground in Retail management, personnel and training.

When not with TGR, Elaine has a small holistic practice and spends her down time tending to the garden and looking after Inca, her lovely Labrador.




Richard Williamson | Events & Office Manager

Rich has been a part of The Green Register since early 2014, initially holding the fort in Birgit’s absence and now contributing a few hours a week.

Rich’s extensive experience in all things events adds to a well managed events programme, as well as assisting with our marketing and web activities.

When not with TGR, Rich spends the time with other clients managing their corporate events programmes. On evenings and weekends he can be found in music venues and festivals around the south west playing his sax for some great local bands.



Charlotte Surrey | Project Manager, Futureproof

A steep learning curve as a Commercial Manager in the Construction sector, added to many years in marketing led Charlotte to TGR in 2019. A growing interest in sustainable building methods and a desire to skill up the building community in greener techniques drives a fervour for Futureproof; an important initiative to make sustainability the norm in retrofitting our homes.

Elsewhere in the week, Charlotte can be found on site or spreadsheet in the construction business or enjoying the great outdoors, music and food – sometimes all at once.
