Cambridge Ecology has experience of projects where BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes credits are required. We work in close alliance with the project team, including landscape designers and architects, to develop appropriate landscape planting schemes and maximise the credit points available for a positive change in ecological value.
Credit points are available within Land Use and Ecology (BREEAM) or Ecology (CSH) categories. These credits are only available following an ecological appraisal undertaken by a ‘Suitably Qualified Ecologist’ (SQE). Our ecologists meet the SQE definition and will assess the site’s current ecological value, identifying where and how features of ecological value should be retained, protected, and enhanced for biodiversity.
Our ecology reports provide clear and concise recommendations to maximise ecological credits where available, through simple and cost-effective solutions. We can also design long-term management plans to ensure sustainable steps are taken to benefit biodiversity.
