Who We Are
We established our practice in 2006 and continue to build on our success in providing sound, high quality ecological advice and strong customer service underpinned by technical excellence.
We employ a team of professional ecologists covering a range of specialisms and with staff experienced in dealing with complex ecological issues and the ways in which they relate to development, local planning and land-use issues.
Operating from our office base in the heart of Staffordshire, our work takes us across England and Wales and covers projects from small-scale housing developments and barn conversions, to large commercial and residential developments, infrastructure, renewable energy, utilities and conservation management.
Our ecologists are members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management’s (CIEEM) and bound by their code of professional conduct and due to this undertake annual continuing profession development (CPD).
