When it comes to the environment, we understand the need to protect the delicate balance between conserving nature, progressing your projects, and delivering efficiency and quality. Our experienced environmental professionals work with you to ensure you meet your ecological objectives.

Our trained and accredited Habitats Team provides the expertise you need to achieve your project outcomes.  We deliver projects on rail and road infrastructure, as well as residential and commercial development sites.

Accredited and certified

Expert technical teams

Our experienced teams include SMSTS, CSCS, CPCS and PTS trained staff as well as habitat consultants, arboriculturalists and chartered ecological professionals.

We have fully certificated plant operatives, and our Site Managers hold a variety of protected species licenses, including great crested newts (GCN), white-clawed crayfish (WCC) and bats.

This unique combination of contracting and environmental skills means we can offer a wide range of habitat management services to meet your specific needs.

Our services

  • Protected Species Mitigation

    Protected species mitigation may be required as part of enabling works or at the end of your project.  Our environmental professionals understand the ecological requirements of protected species and the relevant legislation, and will work with you to minimise risk and deliver successful mitigation schemes.

  • Habitat Creation and Restoration

    Our habitat consultants can help you to integrate environmental requirements into your contracting and development activities. If your scheme requires specialist habitat creation works we can support you through all the project stages from design to build, and through to sign off.

  • Habitat and Site Management

    It’s essential to actively manage and maintain habitats and species on your site in order to meet management objectives.  We offer practical, proportionate and seasonally appropriate support to ensure species and habitat interest is maintained or enhanced.

  • SuDS Schemes and Treatment Wetlands

    Planning permissions often require specialist SuDS (sustainable drainage system) schemes and treatment wetlands as part of the overall project.  We can provide you with the expertise to ensure a fully functional and adoptable scheme is delivered.

  • Invasive Species Control

    The presence of non-native invasive species can threaten native biodiversity and disrupt your development site.  Our Habitats Team is experienced in the control of a number of invasive species and has developed future-proofed techniques for their survey and control. Our control and eradication strategies are recognised by statutory and local planning authorities.

Working across sectors

We deliver projects across multiple sectors including housing, development, infrastructure and rail. We also work on commercial and regeneration projects with local authorities, trusts and charities.

Our clients consist of some of the largest private and public companies within these sectors, demonstrating our ability to provide an applied and tailored professional service. We have strong technical experience working trackside for Network Rail, as well as supporting property developers such as Keepmoat Homes, in their habitat management and mitigation measures.
