We focus on our quality and on creating strong client relations and business partnerships which enhance established operations, ensure regulatory compliance and enable new development plans. Our client focused approach builds trust and the confidence needed to allow the application of innovation and problem solving.

The majority of our work is commissioned by an array of public and private sector clients in support of the following:

  • Ports & Harbour Operations & Developments;

  • Energy Development & Supply;

  • Construction Related Activities;
  • Environmental Protection & Regulatory Compliance;

Testament to our quality is the profile of our projects and the high ratio of repeat business from our client and partnership networks.

We provide the following services: 

Ecological Surveying & Enhancement

Environmental Impact Assessment 

Contaminated Land & Sediments

Water Management & Engineering

Although we work in the above distinct areas much of our innovation and discernible value comes through the interaction between our disciplines. Our ability to establish and deploy specialist multi skilled teams, working towards a common objective, is core to our service.

Water Management & Engineering

EnviroCentre has a team of qualified water specialists including hydrologists, geomorphologists, hydraulic modellers, engineers and GIS analysts who deliver a wide range of water-related services from surveying and data collection through analysis and assessment to engineering design.

Key water management services include:

  • Flood risk assessment - fluvial, coastal and urban

  • Computational modelling: 1D, 2D and 3D hydrodynamic flow, sediment transport & water quality
  • Hydrology and hydrogeology
  • Geomorphology and river restoration
  • Hydro-ecology
  • Water quality, Environmental Clerk of Works (ECoW)
  • Hydrometric monitoring
  • Controlled Activities Regulations (CAR) licence applications
  • Wetland assessment (e.g. peatland and Groundwater Dependent Terrestrial Ecosystems - GWDTE)
  • Climate change, carbon balance assessment and meteorology

Key civil and environmental engineering services include

  • River and coastal engineering and restoration design

  • Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) design and drainage impact assessment (DIA)

  • Landfill design, assessment, monitoring and regulatory compliance
  • Fish pass feasibility and design
  • Hydropower scheme feasibility, assessment and design

Environmental Impact Assessment 

Our EIA team is comprised of specialists who together provide an integrated multi-disciplinary service in support of our clients development aspirations, whether the need is for planning consent, licensing or permitting requirements. Our services include the following:  

  • All aspects of EIA from screening to Environmental Statement (ES);

  • Noise monitoring and assessment;

  • Air quality monitoring modelling & assessment;

  • Pollution Prevention Control (PPC) permitting;

  • BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) Assessor;

  • Construction Environmental Management Plans (CEMP);

  • Environmental Clerk of Works (ECoW);

  • Specialist all media environmental monitoring, including real time systems

    On EIA our team are experts at managing the EIA process and compiling the resulting Environmental Statement (ES). We are most effective at supporting the environmental planning process when part of the development design team.  In this role we’re able to provide strategic input to help our clients avoid potentially significant environmental constraints whilst helping to protect the environment. Our EIA team has been successful at managing the EIA’s for developments in a range of sectors, including energy & renewables, residential, infrastructure, retail, healthcare and ports/ harbours. 

    We benefit from having specialist in-house assessors who work together to evaluate the range of topics covered by EIA, such as ecology, hydrology (including flood risk), land quality, air quality and environmental noise. We have a trusted network of co-consultants for certain specialist topics, such as Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment and Archaeology. In combination with the experience and skill of our EIA project managers, our team are able to undertake EIA in a holistic manner, with knowledge of each topic and ability to assess the complex interactions between topics, as part of the cumulative assessment. 

    We routinely support our clients to implement the schedule of mitigation and comply with planning/license conditions through our team of Environmental and Ecological Clerk of Works who are members of AEECOW.
