In recent years ecology has become an important component when planning, designing and implementing construction and civil engineering projects.  Identifying any potential ecological constraints at an early stage can avoid costly delays.  SDC offers a wide range of ecological services which we can tailor specifically to meet your requirements, including:

  • Pre-purchase/outline development scoping surveys.
  • Habitat surveys (Phase 1; Extended Phase 1; NVC; hedgerow, river corridor and pond surveys, etc.).
  • Protected species surveys (great crested newt, bat, badger, otter, water vole, barn owl, lesser silver water beetle, reptile, crayfish, breeding and wintering bird, invertebrate, etc).
  • Ecological impact assessment.
  • Design and implementation of wildlife mitigation schemes.
  • Species and habitat translocation.
  • Wildlife habitat design, creation and management.
  • Ecological auditing and compliance monitoring.
  • Ecological Clerk of Works / site supervision.
  • Production of management plans.
  • Species and habitat monitoring.
  • Expert witness (planning appeal, public inquiry, court hearings, etc).
  • Training and bespoke courses.

Ecology is a broad subject and some areas are highly specialised, so if you are struggling to find someone to undertake a specialist survey try contacting us, as we may be able to help via our extensive network of associates and colleagues.
