Our environmental consultants provide a comprehensive range of strategic planning, licensing, consenting, advisory and reporting services in support of marine projects and developments around the world.

We work closely with our clients and other project stakeholders (including regulators) to implement sound environmental management, which in turn ensures a smooth planning and consenting process.

With a wealth of knowledge and experience, our team provides environmental advice and guidance for industry and regulators.

We secure regulatory approval for project developments by engaging with our clients and finding a balance between project requirements and the existing environment regulatory framework. Our environmental advice, reporting and consenting services span many industry sectors.

We undertake a wide range of projects, from small-scale, one-off activities to major infrastructure projects. 

Each marine and/or coastal development project has its own set of unique constraints and challenges requiring effective environmental management solutions. 

Here are some examples of how we can help you:

Feasibility and site selection 

Our unique combination of skills and services means we can provide well-informed advice on the suitability of any proposed development location. We can support you at the concept stage of your project by liaising with the regulators about the project’s feasibility and helping you to select the best site location.

Environmental impact assessments (EIAs) 

Many projects require an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), from port expansions to offshore wind farms or oil and gas developments. We have developed an EIA methodology specifically suited to projects in the marine and coastal environment, focussing on the sensitivities and receptor values that make these environments unique. 

Consents and permits

Throughout the life of your development, we can help you prepare applications for marine consents and permits relating to your project development activities. Our environmental consultants are highly experienced in developing, reviewing and advising on environmental survey requirements. Whether a project requires a single permit or a full EIA, we will work closely with you to identify the best solution 

Post-consent services

Once project consent has been granted, we can continue to support you by:

  • Developing environmental management, mitigation and monitoring plans
  • Making sure you meet post-consent regulatory requirements and licence conditions
  • Carrying out post-consent surveys
  • Providing an ecological or environmental clerk of works
