Environmental Impact Assessment
We advise on the requirement for, and scope of, EIA to minimise impact and ensure a proportionate response
Our environmental support for clients ranges from strategic advice to the delivery of specific technical services. We have helped set environmental parameters for some of Europe’s largest and most high profile projects and programmes, while also offering a range of survey, monitoring and management services in such areas as noise, air quality, biodiversity, green infrastructure, landscape, water, land and waste.
We can add value to the EIA process by aligning ourselves with client goals, thinking differently where required and ensuring we are addressing the priorities of local planning authorities and other stakeholders. In helping to meet what is a regulatory requirement we will come up with a strategy that reduces project risks and creates long-term asset value, often in an extremely tight timescale.
As part of our EIA support for these and other schemes, we can provide a full range of technical expertise, including noise and vibration, air quality, water, microclimate, biodiversity, archaeology and heritage, community and health impacts, materials/waste, landscape/townscape, climate resilience and carbon/energy. Our experience of nationally significant infrastructure projects has given us a detailed understanding of different legislation and consenting regimes.
