“NBC have come highly recommended and I have personally used Craig Bickerstaffe, the Contract Manager for my area on a previous job. He was very efficient and made it clear from the start exactly what needed doing, how long it will take and how much it would cost. I have another project that I now want NBC to assist with.”
“The team arrived on site and had the full PPE requirements including safety harnesses and barriers. They carried out the work in a very professional and friendly way. They even regularly stopped their own work to allow for the constant flow of wagons to load and unload, they did not even moan about it!!
They kept the staff informed of every stage of the project and even pointed out issue with the building that we were not aware of.
The gantry walkway is now safe, useable and is so very clean now, excellent work!!
We are very happy with the work and we feel that NBC went above and beyond the requirements by carrying out extra bits of work that we did not expect, other companies could learn from this professional approach.
We have no complaints at all from the whole experience and have nothing but admiration for the team, thank you NBC for a job very well done!!”
“falconry was a great success through the day – the lasers through the night!”
“NBC Environment came to carry out a free survey on our property to assess solutions for our bird problem and we agreed on a design that was both agreeable aesthetically but also practical and would work. When working with a supplier on a large project like this, it is often the case of having to compromise in areas to accommodate the project. In this case however NBC worked around us and maintained communications throughout to ensure there was no disruption to our daily tasks.”
“I would like to express my gratitude to NBC Environment and to Michael Hilton in particular.
Michael recently helped me to deliver a project at very short notice after being let down by others and that phase of works was critical in the project timeline.
Michael was very communicative throughout the planning and delivery of the project and his experience and guidance were invaluable to getting the right results.
With his help I was able to plan, raise an order and deliver the work within a day, which by any standards is a considerable achievement.
His administration was reactive and precise, and I would have no hesitation in engaging his services in the future.
Many thanks to Michael and his team.”
“We have worked with NBC for a number of years now and put our trust in them on a variety of contracts including pigeon and rodent issues. No job is ever to big or small and we know that whenoever we need NBC they are only a phone call away. Thank you again.”
“NBC have always provided a consistent professional service. The team always conduct themselves professionally when on site and are always happy to answer any questions we have to help reduce populations further”
“NBC Environment has been working under contract for the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) for over 4 years, and I would recommend their services.
NBC have provided us with a good level of service in relation to bird control on our sites and have helped to reduce the amount of Pigeon and Seagulls nesting/resting on the sites. We have calculated that in the first year of the contract over 4 tons of pigeon mess was removed from the roof areas and court yards because of NBC controlling the amount of bird resting in these areas.
I have always found NBC to be flexible to our site and have worked with the UHS to provide around the clock service when needed to have certain activities done to suit site needs.
In the last couple of years, we have invited NBC to attend up our hospital open day to show the public what we our doing and what they can do for us regarding supporting these activities. This has helped the public to understand what we have achieved and how working in partnership with NBC has assisted us in keeping a clean hospital environment. ”
“Just to add, I’d like to thank you for your help throughout the project. It’s been a pleasure to work with you on this project, like with all construction projects we have some challenges but your helpful attitude and collaborative working approach has made the works run seamlessly. You’ll definitely be at the top of our list for any future bird protection requirements.”
“An excellent job completed by the NBC team on time and to a high standard of quality, without delays or interruptions to the school. We would be happy to use their services again if required”
“I am very happy with the way that your company has dealt with our pest problems so far. To date everything you said you would do has considerably reduced the problem and the tenants although wary at the start are now saying that they are glad we have this in place.
One thing in particular is that when Dan comes on site to do his business quite a few people come up to him and are interested in what he’s doing and of course the lovely Hawks take centre stage!”
“I wished to say a huge thank you for the hard work that your team put in last week at the Broad Marsh site. They worked really hard and the site looked great for the media attendance on Friday. A job well done. Much appreciated.”
“"Honestly the best and most professional company for anything pest related. We tried others before but none can come close to the spectrum of services and level of quality provided. Our 3rd time using here in Cambridge ARU and we will definitely use again! Well done NBC and special thanks to Anthony and Patrick for their efforts. Would and will recommend””
“Firstly, thank you to you and your team for a timely and well executed programme. End to end went like clockwork. I am very pleased with the approach, conduct and result.”
“NBC have been great throughout the project so top marks to you and your teams. I would have no hesitation in recommending NBC to others and will be in touch again should the need arise. Thank you again, hopefully not for the last time. Please pass on my thanks to the team for their work carried out”
“‘NBC helped us out massively on this project and in fact with how clean they got the roof we actually located more leaks preventing us from coming back – this is the first time we have used NBC on the back of a recommendation from another company. Thank you NBC we will be in touch on the next project.”
“Coveya contacted NBC Environment for help with a bird nuisance issue at our new premises in Yate Bristol. We are very happy with the service provided which was prompt and included the expert advice we needed. The bird netting and spiking installation they carried out was professional, on time and a very neat installation and they even cleaned the area to remove all the bird fouling plus “removed” some birds that had invaded the building prior to their installation – very impressed and we shall be using them again.”
“Working with NBC Environment, their specialist wildlife expertise, can-do attitude and solution-driven approach quickly became apparent. I cannot speak highly enough of the NBC team, as subject matter experts for wildlife management offshore, the results of their programme speak for themselves.”
“The NBC team were very efficient and professional in every aspect of the project and kept me advise of the various stages of works etc.
The project ran very smoothly and did not interfere with our operations at all and we would highly recommend NBC to others.
Since this project we have seen a large reduction of gulls on our site to the point of there being just the odd one or two now and again. Myself my team now feel more safe working within the compound and there has been no issues with gulls swooping.
Thank you, NBC!!”
“During the pandemic and with no one being in our stadium the pigeons have returned and we were experiencing not only high numbers flying around but also a lot of pigeon fouling inside our stadium. We knew the H&S risks surrounding this and called in the professionals again to assist. NBC attended site the next day and advised the best way to tackle the infestation and also the safe removal of the pigeon fouling. NBC were very professional and we are very happy with the results so far. Would highly recommend.”
“NBC Team have always provided a professional and efficient service which has brought confidence to my clients and so allowing me to bring more work to your organisation through the means of recommendation. ”
“Historically we have had pest issues in the past, rats, mice, pigeons and Gulls and most recently Canadian Geese. Our previous supplier wasn’t getting quick results so we contacted NBC Environment on the back of some recommendations. Over the past 12 months NBC have done a fantastic job with rodent riddance programs and also a safe removal of the Canadian geese. We are very happy with NBC and we have just resigned for another 12 months. Craig Bickerstaffe our main point of contact is very professional and I cannot fault his service especially with the current situation with Covid-19. We will continue to be a customer with NBC”
“We called in NBC on short notice to advise us and the client on the best way to over come our problem. NBC gave us good advice and helped us over come all our issues on our short time frame.
The operatives that visited site and completed the work were very knowledgeable, and helpful. Look forward to working with NBC again.”
“We first approached NBC in 2015 as a large colony of gulls had taken residence on our roof. These gulls were causing a health and safety issue by dive bombing drivers, defecating over vehicles and sometimes members of staff.
NBC came in and recommended a bird control programme. This has been in place for 5 years and we have seen a dramatic reduction in numbers with the colony now being pushed away into the surrounding area – this has been a great investment for our company. NBC’s staff have always been knowledgeable, helpful and highly skilled when carrying out their work – I would strongly recommend them to any business.”
“I would just like to say thank you to your team in regard to the netting installation, looks fantastic, thank you.”
“We wouldn’t hesitate to utilise and recommend NBC Environments professional services in similar circumstances in the future if an opportunity of similar nature arose for a client.”
“I would just like to say thank you to your team for the netting installations and the excellent workmanship. We are more than happy with it and will definitely be using you again!!”
“NBC Environment have helped us on a project where we needed to organise with various suppliers including scaffolding and have their flexibility in attendance dates and commitment to do the work within time and budget to avoid incurring future costs and disappointing the end client.
NBC had to be flexible and responsive to these dates as well maintaining excellent communication throughout the project, all of which they achieved very well. I would definitely recommend NBC and their team and looking forward to working them on the next project.”
“It’s very rare for a such a large site to start at this time of year and not have an issue with nesting birds. The developer here had the foresight to appoint NBC to carry out mitigation on the site prior to us starting work there. Our dealings on site with NBC have been very easy and they professionally manage the site and worked with us.”
“Regarding the team who installed the netting, they were both polite, professional and efficient. I would have no problem recommending your company again to other clients or homeowners.”
“NBC have provided great assistance in resolving our gull and pigeon infestation and I would recommend them wholeheartedly. Their team and systems are professional and very helpful, always looking for imaginative ways of resolving our issues. In a business that is unpredictable by nature, these are great assets.”
“The UEA campus was designed so that virtually no part of campus is more than a few minutes walk from anywhere else. As good as this is for students travelling between classes, it means many features of our distinctive University, such as the elevated walkways and concrete overhangs, are an attractive place for pigeons.
As we endeavour to make our campus accessible to all, it became clear that in a number of key areas the pigeon guano was a serious issue for our students and staff, particularly wheelchair users, and with the listed buildings on site we were restricted in what preventative measures we could take.
Luckily for us, NBC were able to deliver a humane solution which fit the needs of our site. With their consultants they were able to address the problems we faced and sensitivities from students and staff. As a result we have seen a significant reduction in the potential risks posed to our staff, students and visitors.”
“Since first being approached and engaging with NBC environment, they have worked closely with us to offer operational solutions to ensure the safe operation and maintenance of our assets. Once engaged and discussing the services, we began to fully appreciate the breadth and depth of support they could and would begin to offer us.
This ranged from temporary deterrent measures to physical barriers to prevent unwanted gulls nesting on sensitive equipment and protecting our workforce from being attacked whilst working at height. Their expertise and supportive approach have made them a valued partner ASCO Fuels and Lubricants, moving forward.”
“I would just like to thank you and your team on the professional manner that the site operation of cleaning the pigeon guano from the scaffold on the Brighton 3TS project. From the first site visit from yourself to the operation taking place it was done to the highest standards. Your men finished the works 1 day early which took strain off the NHS trust as we were working in live traffic. Much appreciated by all.”
“An excellent job completed by the NBC team on time and to a high standard of quality, without delays or interruptions to the business. We would be happy to use their services again if required.”
“NBC completed the work safely and to a high standard, they listened to specific requirements and delivered a high quality job. We’re very pleased with the area and the result.”
“NBC have been extremely helpful – the falconry and pest services they provide is first class. I would highly recommend them to any business.”
“We awarded the works to NBC based on price and quality of their quote, NBC made the effort to survey the site before pricing, this allowed them to put forward a proposal that gave us confidence in their quote. The quality of their works is good and they have worked weekends to ensure that the works were completed as promptly as possible.
NBC mobilised quickly and have been easy to work with, I would use them again for projects in future.”
“NBC provide a quality service and a thorough explanation of the service. We have good call outs and efficient service every time. Darren and the team could not have been better on a job to remove pigeons in Falmouth.”
“I would like to thank everyone at NBC for their hard work and commitment to achieving a sound install of the bird netting at the bus station project in Exeter.”
“We have employed the services of NBC for many years on our business park in Kidderminster and on an ad hoc basis for our other projects and have always found their team professional, cost effective and reliable with their services. We would readily recommend NBC on the basis of the commercial contract we have with them.”
All birds, their nests and eggs are protected by law and it is an offence (with certain exceptions) to intentionally kill, injure or take any wild bird, or damage the nest. In certain circumstances where birds are a risk to public health or safety it is possible to provide bird control. However, it is imperative that the species of bird is correctly identified before any action is taken and the correct process is followed for legal and humane bird management. We are able to provide consultation and advice on all types of bird control and bird control legislation. We are the UK's experts!
This depends on the scale of the problem. However, our clients find our services very cost effective especially when offset against saving the cost of the damage to buildings, property maintenance, lost production/construction time and the risk to customers and staff. Many of our clients benefit further from the positive PR from using nature to control nature.
