All of the specialists that work for us have a long experience of conservation, biodiversity and ecological management. Projects that we have worked on include almost all major road schemes in the Republic of Ireland and into Northern Ireland (A1N1, N2, N3, M4, N6, N7 and so on). We have also been engaged in surveys for private developments (housing, golf courses, hotels, drainage and flood relief schemes, quarries, landfill, and windfarms). We have worked for county councils on biodiversity assessments, guidance on the significance of sites in local and national terms, ecological inventory.
Typical surveys would require an examination of an area for badgers, bats, otters, squirrel, pine marten and other mammals as well as birds. Habitat and Flora can be provided as an overall package for any survey. We have worked for Heritage Officers and the Heritage Council on major bat surveys in Laois, Offaly, Carlow, and Kilkenny.
