Our Services

Comprehensive Environmental Land Surveying Service

Our experts take a commercial approach to property, working alongside the wider disciplines of the Project & Building Consultancy team to ensure that our clients are advised on most appropriate way to invest in their portfolios, and manage environmental risks. 

We consider multiple variables when assessing the environmental risk of a site, including current activities on-site, historical uses, and the land condition. We evaluate the environmental risk relevant to our clients' needs, whether this is to support a planning application or to purchase a portfolio of industrial units across the country. We also provide specialist advice around the risks from flooding, ecology, utilities, air, noise, unexploded ordnance and coal mining.
