Nevis Environmental provides a range of environmental monitoring services during the preconstruction and construction phases of a development to ensure legislative compliance and best practice is adopted across the site. We work with the site owners, managers and developers to ensure they actively monitor and supervise the construction work taking place.

Pre-Construction Services

A range of environmental monitoring may be required during the pre-construction phase to discharge planning conditions or provide an ecological baseline prior to construction.  Our range of services includes:

  • Discharging planning conditions and producing the required documents for planning condition discharge.

  • Reviewing and extracting key environmental information from the Environmental Statement and associated documents, and ensuring that this is taken into account in the detailed design and planning discharge documentation. 

  • Undertaking baseline ecology, hydrology and environmental surveys.

Construction Monitoring & services

We provide a range of environmental monitoring services during the construction phase, including:

  • Undertaking on-site environmental audits

  • Construction Environmental manager role

  • Management of stakeholders and consultees

  • Carrying out pre-clearance protected species surveys

  • Surface water and private water supply monitoring

  • Waste and water management and monitoring

  • Dust and statutory nuisance

  • Incident investigation and training

  • Liaising with sub-consultants and contractors regarding environmental issues on site

  • Ensuring that restoration of the site is undertaken to the requirements of the project documentation and to best practice guidance and procedures.
