Providing bird and wildlife consultations and solutions to safeguard development and infrastructure projects throughout the UK

From pre-planning to post construction, our team is uniquely skilled and experienced to deliver effective bird and wildlife mitigation programmes for projects of any size. Our experience extends to all types of urban, coastal, rural or industrial environments and our pragmatic approach ensures progress as well as wildlife conservation.

Bird Mitigation Measures

All bird species are protected by law and it is illegal to kill, injure or remove nests knowingly or unknowingly. An ecological bird survey at the planning stage will identify potential bird or wildlife issues; but what next?

Our teams will design and deliver bird mitigation programmes that include habitat management zones and monitoring. Our team is uniquely qualified to understand bird behaviour and how to deliver legal and effective bird control programmes. Services include:

  • A bird survey to assess the environment and wildlife
  • Legislation guidance – we remove the legislative challenges and headaches
  • Bird mitigation programme planning with clear methodology for audit/approval
  • Habitat management – creation, clearance and management
  • Bird proofing of a variety of buildings including new, temporary and derelict structures

Infection Control for Construction Sites

It’s not just projects we protect, we also support clients and their employees with our infection control services.
