Holger Kessler

Geoscience Technical Adviser, Geospatial Commission

Holger Kessler joined the British Geological Survey (BGS) in 1998 with a degree in Physical Geography and Soil Science from the University of Frankfurt in Germany. For the beginning of his career he was employed as a geological surveyor mapping glacial deposits and landscapes in North Norfolk and Yorkshire. In the early 2000s, Holger became involved with  major research project developing the capabilities for 3 dimensional geological modelling and urban geology. 

Since then Holger has been instrumental in the digital transformation of BGS from a traditional mapping to a modern digital modelling organisation, working closely with stakeholders such as the Environment Agency, Local Authorities, Utilities and the construction sector. His main ambition is to make geoscience data and information as useful and accessible as possible to end users and policy makers in order to make more science-based decisions about the subsurface. 

Holger is now on full-time secondment to the Geospatial Commission as a Geoscience Technical Adviser working on the National Underground Asset Register (NUAR) pilot project with particular responsibility for stakeholder engagement. 

NUAR is intended to be a data-sharing platform on the location and type of buried apparatus to be used by asset owners and their operators. For the initial phase of the Programme the Commission is funding two pilots arising from two existing initiatives in London and the North East. The purpose is to provide learning on the value, requirements, and methods needed to establish a national platform.

What the UK's construction industry is saying about London Build..

  • It was our first time as an exhibitor and London Build Expo did not disappoint. It proved to be both exciting and productive. Looking forward to next year.

  • London Build is a busy and vibrant expo bringing together large to small players in architecture, interior design, building, construction and refurbishment. I would recommend it as both an exhibitor and as a visitor.
    Sarah Hodgkins
    Owner and Artist, Charlotte Designs
  • We attended as a visitor for the first time last year and were impressed enough to rebook for this year. The standard of visitors that came to the stand was really good and the variety of roles from MD’s to electricians was excellent and some meaningful conversations took place, we met people that we would not have been able to access during a normal working week. It was a well organised event, very easy for the exhibitor and a really good atmosphere throughout, I would recommend that anyone who visited with a view to taking stand space in 2019 should go for it.
    Tim Brown
    Technical and Specification Manager, Unitrunk
  • I would wholeheartedly recommend exhibiting at London Build.
    Adam Martin

  • We had a great time exhibiting at this year’s show. We met a real mix of individuals and companies, collected some valuable leads and found it an excellent platform to showcase our new fire safe building wrap material to the market.
    Brett Rigby
    Business Development Manager, Service Graphics​​​​​​​
  • A very well organised exhibition. From the initial booking of our stand, design, social media coverage and logistics; London Build 2018 was a breeze to organise and exhibit at. The layout of the floorplan was very clear and enabled exhibitors to find stands they were interested in and engage with exhibitors. We certainly made a lot of new contacts and would recommend London Build!
