Atkins provides ecological assessment, interpretation and solutions for management, development, and infrastructure projects of all sizes across terrestrial, freshwater, marine and coastal environments.
Assessing and interpreting ecological issues provides vital information to ensure legal compliance and to feed into master plan designs, planning applications, development frameworks or environmental impact assessment. The early identification of constraints and opportunities assists in decision making and is also essential in avoiding costly delays during planning and construction.
Our team of ecologists, including terrestrial and aquatic specialists, can provide support at any stage of a project, from feasibility through to planning, consultation, and implementation.
