As part of its securing the project, the firm recruited four consultants to take up roles in its Air Quality team: Ben Grebot, David Carslaw, Betty Ng and Tim Scarbrough.

In 2008, she joined Jacobs Engineering as the company’s Technical Director, after which she became the Managing Director at ATNIR Environment in 2010. Her last role was at ERM: Environmental Resources Management, which she joined as Technical Director in 2012. Today Ng is a Knowledge Leader in the Air Quality team at Ricardo-AEA.
