Our reputation for quality of service and project success has been established over a period of more than 35 years.
We are Corporate Members of IEMA and are registered IEMA EIA Quality Mark scheme members.
The quality of our work is also recognised by our clients who see us as an integral part of their project planning team.
We are recognised by IEMA for the quality of our EIA work. We were first formally recognised by the Institute of Environmental Assessment in 1997 when we become Corporate EIA Registrants.
The EIA Quality Mark is a voluntary UK scheme operated by IEMA through which our EIA activity is independently reviewed to ensure that it delivers excellence in the following areas:
EIA Management – we use effective project control and management processes to deliver quality.
EIA Team Capabilities – we ensure that our EIA staff undertake regular and relevant continuing professional development.
EIA Regulatory Compliance – we deliver ESs that meet the requirements of UK EIA Regulations.
EIA Context & Influence – we ensure that all EIAs coordinated are effectively scoped and that they transparently indicate how the EIA process, and any consultation undertaken, influenced the development proposed and any alternatives considered.
EIA Content – we undertake assessments that include robust analysis of the relevant baseline, assessment and transparent evaluation of impact significance and an effective description of measures designed to monitor and manage significant effects.
EIA Presentation – we deliver ESs that set out environmental information in a transparent and understandable manner.
Improving EIA practice – we enhance the profile of good quality EIA by working with IEMA to deliver case studies, articles and presentations and by making appropriate examples of our work available to the wider EIA community.
In addition to being registered on the IEMA EIA Quality Mark scheme, our team includes Chartered Environmentalists, Full Members of IEMA and IEMA Registered EIA Practitioners.

For us, EIA is so much more that identifying impacts at the end of the design process and bolting-on mitigation measures. We collaborate with architects, engineers, designers and other specialists to develop creative solutions that embed mitigation into design. Good quality design is the best mitigation!
We promote quality developments that deliver added value, coordinating the EIA process on behalf of our clients and working alongside project Planning Consultants. Our award-winning schemes demonstrate what we can achieve together.
We also specialise in undertaking Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments and Ecological Impact Assessments. We have extensive contacts with other specialists who can prepare the full range of complementary assessments that may be required.Find out more
