Ecology

Sweco’s team of ecologists manage all ecological aspects of your project, finding pragmatic solutions to help protect and enhance biodiversity and the wider environment for years to come.

Our work is wide in scope and practical in approach. From initial desk based research and site assessment, we offer a wide range of specialist services including habitat and species surveys, protected species licensing and mitigation design, through to detailed design, ecological monitoring and maintenance advice.

We have wide ranging experience in ecosystem assessments and biodiversity offsetting, ecological aspects of EIA and SEA and Habitats Regulations Assessments in terrestrial, aquatic and marine environments.

Sweco also offers Ecological Clerks of Works and suitably Qualified Ecologists for BREEAM.

The Sweco Ecology calendars have been designed to help you with your project planning. Protected species surveys are best undertaken at certain times of the year which can vary according to the species concerned and the type of survey required. We have produced this ecology survey calendar as a guide to when the different surveys can be undertaken. The Mitigation calendar highlights the best time to undertake mitigation for protected species. Most protected species mitigation works will need a licence from the Statutory Nature Conservation organisation (e.g. NE, SNH or NRW), it is important that you check your legal requirements before undertaking any ecological mitigation.

We would advise getting in touch with a member of the ecology team for relevant and specific advice to your circumstances.
