Ecology Design Sustainability
In-short everything to ensure that any project makes it through from conception to implementation. From baseline survey to impact assessment, design and delivery of mitigation schemes.
Here are just a few examples of the type of work our consultants can tackle:
- protected species surveys (bats, badgers, great crested newts, dormice, water voles, barn owls)
- higher and lower plants
- tree surveys (including tree climbing)
- breeding and wintering birds
- vantage point surveys
- aquatic and marine surveys
- bioacoustic and noise survey and monitoring
After the data gathering, survey information requires interpretation. Our consultants are highly experienced at assessing data and presenting it in a clear and concise manner.
Whether for a formal Environmental Impact Assessment, Appropriate Assessment, Ecological Appraisal, Public Exhibition or Public Inquiry we know what is required and how to go about it.
We don’t just work with wildlife. People skills are key to the success of any project whether it is working with statutory bodies such as Natural England, planning authorities or site engineers we have the experience and expertise to achieve the required outcome.
To be at the forefront of our industry and yours, we have to address public opinion and government policy, be scientific and creative, review and assimilate vast amounts of data and provide robust and often challenging advice.
How we do it
Our natural curiosity as individuals leads us to develop new ways of thinking and doing. Alongside the tried and tested methods we like to challenge ourselves to think around the problem.
Innovation and commercial awareness are at the heart of what we do. You will find us (sometimes painfully, but professionally) honest, and we expect the same from you. We are non-judgmental and approachable, you CAN ask us the silly questions.
Our pricing structure is geared to the needs of the client not the cost of the consultant. You will always be charged for the complexity of the task rather than the seniority of the consultant.
The big why question
To be frank – it’s the law! 90% of the ecology work we do is governed by legislation and policy. We take a close interest in environmental law and we make sure that you keep on the right side of it.
But that’s not the whole story. Most of our clients are looking to achieve a competitive edge with their developments. By incorporating sound ecological and sustainability principles Baker Consultants offers this added value.
