We handle a small number of complex projects at any given time. All of our staff are professionally qualified and have experience in managing large scale projects and developments. We find we can maintain significant ‘contact time’ on projects and provide clients with complete familiarity with projects.
Our Professional Team are extremely experienced and knowledgeable in environmental management. Complementary to this we have an in-house team of experienced planning consultants. We find that this allows us to provide comprehensive advice on projects, thereby ensuring all possible outcomes are considered.
We mainly serve the engineering, industrial and infrastructure sectors, and have a particularly strong track record bringing large-scale projects from initiation through to post-planning compliance.
Our range of services includes:
Environmental Impact Assessment
We are a leading authority on all parts of the EIA process. We have prepared and assisted with EISs for a wide range of project types from extractive and energy projects, through to industrial, infrastructural, urban design and leisure projects. We have strong experience with complex large-scale projects, sometimes on sites where IPPC (IED) and SEVESO aspects need to be considered in an EIS.
Through our parent company CAAS Ltd., we prepared the original EIA Guidelines for the EPA and have been involved in other key publications. We are currently engaged by the EPA to update the Guidelines and advise on procedures during the transposition of the amended EIA Directive. Read more
