Services / Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
Our EIA service is accredited to the IEMA EIA Quality Mark recognising our understanding of the process and the quality of our Environmental Statements. Our experienced coordinators use their expertise to manage the planning, environmental and programming requirements; ensuring good teamwork to deliver a robust Environmental Statement.
We believe that EIA is integral to the design process, ensuring environmental issues are addressed throughout project development to minimise potential adverse effects as they are identified.
Our established relationships with other consultancies enable us to provide/offer a full team, with specialists whom are the best in their respective fields of expertise.
