On EIA our team are experts at managing the EIA process and compiling the resulting Environmental Statement (ES) / Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIAR). We are most effective at supporting the environmental planning process when part of the development design team.  In this role we’re able to provide strategic input to help our clients avoid potentially significant environmental constraints whilst helping to protect the environment. Our EIA team has been successful at managing the EIAs for developments in a range of sectors, including energy & renewables, residential, infrastructure, retail, healthcare and ports / harbours. 

We benefit from having specialist in-house assessors who work together to evaluate the range of topics covered by EIA, such as ecology, hydrology (including flood risk), land quality, air quality and environmental noise. We have a trusted network of co-consultants for certain specialist topics, such as Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and Archaeology. In combination with the experience and skill of our EIA project managers, our team are able to undertake EIA in a holistic manner, with knowledge of each topic and ability to assess the complex interactions between topics, as part of the cumulative assessment. 

We routinely support our clients to implement the schedule of mitigation and comply with planning/license conditions through our team of Environmental and Ecological Clerk of Works who are members of AEECOW.
