Cambridge Ecological & Arboricultural Surveys
Plowman Craven's in-house environmental planning team is able to support on all aspects of the environmental assessment process, from carrying out initial environmental baseline surveys to providing design advice to mitigate any adverse impacts on the environment. We provide support for the following environmental disciplines:
Environmental due diligence is an increasingly important part of corporate due diligence and failure to adequately assess environmental risks can lead to unexpected costs and project delays. We offer pre-acquisition environmental assessment services which feed into feasibility studies, helping to identify environmental issues and opportunities, and maximising the potential for a site or portfolio.
We deliver a range of environmental surveys and assessments to support the planning process, including contamination, ecology, noise, air quality, flood risk and rights of light.
We also provide support with local authority technical liaison and have a proven track record of achieving mutually beneficial planning outcomes.
We undertake, coordinate and manage Environmental Impact Assessments to determine the likely significant environmental effects of new developments including residential, commercial and retail. We also have experience with energy and infrastructure developments, taking clients through each step of the process, from initial Screening and Scoping to the production of the Environmental Statement.
PC Enviro provide consultation throughout the planning process from initial feasibility to demolition and construction. Our collaborative approach helps build strong working relationships with all stakeholders to ensure the best possible outcome.
We offer a full range of automated and manual noise, vibration and air quality surveys and monitoring using state-of-the-art monitoring systems, providing real-time web interfaces to help keep clients and stakeholders engaged and informed. SMS texts are triggered automatically to notify site managers when levels are elevated in order for them to take action to avoid complaints.
Noise, vibration and dust from construction activities can cause significant risk to contractors and developers and, when not properly managed, can lead to programme delays, commercial impacts and reputational damage.
Plowman Craven can provide assistance in the preparation and management of Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP), especially in relation to the more technically complex elements such as noise and vibration or materials management for remediation projects.
We offer a range of assessment, monitoring and consultancy services to minimise potential risks and achieve compliance with local authority requirements.
Once consent has been granted, we provide advice and support throughout the demolition and construction phases.
We provide accredited air tightness and sound insulation testing to contractors and developers to satisfy Building Regulation requirements. These services are delivered in combination with Plowman Craven’s Area Referencing services, offering a comprehensive ‘one-stop shop’.
Our experienced teams respond at short notice on the largest of projects. Should the test fail, we provide simple and cost-effective mitigation advice to help resolve any problems.
Our Environmental Planning Services are integrated with Plowman Craven’s broader surveying and measurement services throughout the project lifecycle.
We deploy the latest tools & technologies - including managing and presenting data in a BIM environment - to add value to our environmental services.
Our experts have significant experience in the environmental industry, having held senior positions with some of the UK’s largest consultancies.
