Environmental Services

We offer a range of environmental services, principally the implementation of successful mitigation, conservation, habitat creation, species translocation schemes and the assessment of new developments for their environmental impact.


We work closely with landscape architects and developers to ensure the correct credits are achieved by incorporating native planting schemes and additional features to encourage wildlife, as well as ensuring the project is within the legislative framework. We are members of the IEEM – a requirement of the Buildings Research Establishment for a registered Ecological Consultancy.

Habitat enhancement and creation are an integral part of reducing the impact of development.  Ensuring the integrity of wildlife corridors with planting schemes and habitat management plans, site-specific enhancement e.g. ponds and wild flower meadows and scrub clearance.

Ecological clerk of works

An ecological clerk of works, undertaking construction site supervision, is crucial to the minimization of ecological impacts and the success of habitat reinstatement and creation in many development projects. Close liaison and good communications with contractors is vital. Employing an ecological clerk of works can minimize future complications, particularly on sensitive sites.
