Our Bristol Consultancy

The Bristol office was set up in May 2014. We are a small busy team of ecologists and we cover a large geographical area.  We have a large amount of expertise within the Bristol Office and experienced surveyors. We can assist with any project with ecological or wildlife issues.

Our Bristol team is highly experienced in bat surveys, assessment and mitigation.  We have surveyors with survey licences as well as new Bat Low Impact Class Licence (which is a new licence offered by Natural England). We are also highly experienced in phase 1 habitats, reptile, great crested newts, badgers, dormice, otters, water voles among others things.  We offer our clients bespoke services to their projects and have built up a large loyal client base.
