Ecological Specialists-Our in-house ecology team has a proven track record - and considerable experience - of carrying out ecological surveys and assessments. Made up of a range of experts including: licensed ornithologists; protected species experts; terrestrial and freshwater ecologists; and hydrological specialists, they have a well-developed knowledge of both UK and Scottish planning control, as well as European, UK and Scottish environmental legislation and regulations.
While our expertise in wind-energy projects has earned us an enviable reputation within the industry, our knowledge goes beyond this, enabling us to advise on everything from housing, to power-station projects, to multi-use developments.
Environmental Impact Assessment
One of our key strengths is our ability to review, interpret and advise on the full spectrum of renewable energy, commercial development and infrastructure projects, as well as habitat and species management programmes. Our experience means that we can deliver Ecological and Hydrological Impact Assessment chapters and management plans in support of EIAs and Environmental Statements and can offer comprehensive GIS mapping and analysis if required.
As you would expect from any Atmos Consulting team, we offer specialist, high level environmental consultancy services to a wide range of clients, from property developers to wind farm developers. Our projects include: biomass, carbon capture and storage technology power stations; on and off-shore wind farm developments and post-construction monitoring; residential, industrial and mixed-use developments; BREEAM assessments and technical support to developers.
Additionally, because we work across the UK, we understand relevant planning controls, regulations, legislation and third party stakeholder issues at both national and local levels.
Ecological Survey and Assessment
Our technical skills and expertise allow us to strike the fine balance between the interests of development proposals and those of wildlife to achieve pragmatic outcomes that benefit both. As part of a multidisciplinary consultancy, we can effectively include ecological considerations in the overall design process.
