Why Use Adonis Ecology for Your Ecological Survey and Report for BREEAM

Whatever level of BREEAM you need, whether Good, Very Good or Outstanding, if you need to gain credits cost-effectively and quickly - you can have that and more with a specialist BREEAM Ecological Survey and Report from Adonis Ecology.

The Land Use and Ecology category of BREEAM contributes a significant percentage of the overall score. Potentially, these credits can be achieved effectively for you for relatively low cost - so long as you take on an ecological consultancy whose recommendations are cost-effective.

Our aim is to help create a situation where business and wildlife conservation is on the same side - where you can make more money and help conserve wildlife at the same time. To achieve this, we not only look for ways to save you money while ensuring your development gets as many credits as possible from BREEAM, we also look for ways to actually add value so that you can have more profit and achieve a development which you can be proud of for the way it protects and enhances habitat for wildlife.

We would intend to develop a long term relationship with you as we have with our other clients, most of whom are professional developers and their advisors, such as architects, planning consultants, and chartered surveyors, so you will find that:

Your BREEAM Ecological Survey and Report from Adonis Ecology would achieve your goals in a highly cost-effective manner, because:

You can be confident that we deliver what we promise, as our quality system is ISO 9001:2008 quality assured. In addition, here is an example from a client of Adonis Ecology of how our ecological surveys and reports can deliver for you:

"On behalf of PRP and I, we would like to thank you for your recent ecology report which you recently carried out. We were extremely impressed with your report which was thorough, very professional and excellent value for money. I must also thank you for your prompt response to my telephone call and for carrying out your inspection and preparing your report in such a short timescale. Rest assured I will have no hesitance in calling on you in the future or recommending you to others." David A. Hornbuckle FPCS MCECP. Brightsolo Ltd., Lincoln.

You can only gain maximum credits if the ecological survey is carried out at an early stage and all protected species issues are addressed, so contact us today to discuss your requirements so you don't miss out!

For more information on how we maximize credits for you from each ecology-related issue in the Land Use and Ecology Category of BREEAM, see the following.

Maximizing Your Credits from "Contaminated Land" (LE 1)

We work closely with a local company that specialises in assessing and remediating contaminated land, so if you think you have a contaminated site that may qualify for the credit from LE 1, we can help ensure you get as many credits as possible from Ecology and Land Use.

Maximizing Your Credits from "Ecological Value and Protection of Ecological Features" (LE 2)

We can provide you with assessement of the likely ecological value of your site and and also the most cost-effective solutions for protecting ecological features on site, including ways to avoid impact on protected species, saving you time and money compared with mitigation, as well as helping you gain the credit available for this issue.

Maximizing Your Credits from "Mitigating Ecological Impact" (LE 3)

This issue concerns ecological change calculated from change in the number of plant species before and after development. We would aim to provide you with planting advice that is practical and suitable for your development, while gaining you as many credits as possible. We are familiar with a range of planting options that can be used in developments so that we can help you get as many credits from this issue as the planting space on site reasonably allows.

Maximizing Your Credits from "Enhancing Site Ecology" (LE 4)

We would give you ecological enhancement recommendations that are simple and effective to implement. We do this by focussing on which aspect of biodiversity could be realistically helped most on site in a manner that fits with your development. This way, you can maximize your credits and help biodiversity effectively for least hassle and cost.

Maximizing Your Credits from "Long Term Impact on Biodiversity" (LE 5)

We would give you recommendations on this that are simple and practical to implement. In addition to producing a habitat management plan and describing how an ecologically valuable habitat could be created on site if practical, once construction starts we can work with your nominated "biodiversity champion" to train the workforce with an ecological "toolbox talk" and help works avoid disturbance to wildlife, thereby enabling you to maximise your credits from this issue.

To gain credits cost-effectively from BREEAM, we need to be involved at as early a stage as possible - so contact us today to discuss your requirements so you don't miss out!
