How do we work?
Our ethos at Nash Ecology is to provide high quality, professional ecology services which utilise innovative technology and sound ecological principles to provide clients with the most comprehensive and cost-effective outcome.
We have a thorough understanding of UK wildlife legislation and its application within the planning system. Our experts are full members of the Chartered Institute for Ecological and Environmental Management. All surveys are carried out by fully insured, experienced professionals, holding the relevant statutory agency survey licences.
Our ecologists have a breadth of project experience from barn conversions and house extensions to large-scale developments in sectors such as housing, power, aggregates and transport. We provide practical mitigation solutions to ecological issues to ensure sustainable outcomes for projects and ecological alike.
