Environmental Impact Assessment

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.
