Sub-contracting

Sub-contracting

Our varied skills and wide experiences in all protected species and habitat surveys enable us to offer a comprehensive sub contracting service to large Ecological Consultancies. We have the technical expertise and specialist knowledge of protected species, planning legislation and environmental policy to carry out a wide range of ecological surveys in England and Wales.

Our staff hold Bat licenses for both Natural England and Natural Resources Wales as well as Great Crested Newt licenses for Natural England and Natural Resources Wales. We are experienced in delivering all bat surveys, GCN surveys (inc eDNA), badger, water vole, otter, reptile, hedgerow, Phase 1 etc. We can also conduct invasive species surveys and provide accurate maps of infestations and costed programs of eradication.

We have written and are able to follow CEMP’s, Method Statements, Management Plans and RAMS effectively.

Projects include but not limited to:

  • Pond or wetland creation/management
  • Tree planting

  • Building bat barns
  • Ongoing site monitoring
