Construction

Our services are designed to offer you a complete environmental compliance package. They can be used together or independently to suit your project.

Our services

Pre-tender

We offer advice based on information provided to highlight areas of environmental risk that could impact costs and programme, allowing you to make informed decisions in your tender processes.

Discharging conditions

Using our extensive experience in helping developers and principal contractors create project documents/processes to help satisfy/ discharge planning conditions, we help you get the project started.

Consents and licence applications

All developers need to be aware of statutory controls and consents. As this process becomes more involved, we can advise on requirements and help you through the application processes. Environmental consents can have a significant impact on your programme — some, for example, carry a statutory response period of four months.

Training

We offer an Environmental Awareness Course recognised by the Institute of Civil Engineering as an accepted CPD activity. This one-day course is suitable for all on-site personnel, and aims to raise the awareness of general environmental constraints potentially found on a construction site. Topics include water management and pollution control, waste and materials management and ecology. We have also developed a more in-depth training curriculum that offers participants the opportunity to explore particular constraints in more detail than we can provide during a one-day Environmental Awareness event.

Site Environmental Consultants, the foundation of Naturally Compliant Ltd

Whether your requirements are contractual or policy driven, we can provide the on-site expertise you need to achieve environmental compliance through Environmental, Advisory or Auditing Clerk of Works. Here’s how those roles work:

Environmental Advisor/Manager

If your project requires specialist environmental help, an Environmental Advisor/Manager has the experience and knowledge to advise on legislation and appropriate mitigations for any particular constraint. We can provide this service as an integral part of your management structure, or as an independent service offering impartial advice.

Environmental Clerk of Works (EWoW)

The on-site role of an Environmental Clerk of Works (ECoW or EnvCoW) is to monitor, report and advise on compliance to project documentation and environmental legislation. Who they monitor for and report to depends on the contractual obligations of the project. For more information, see our dedicated ECoW page here.

Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW)

Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW or EcoCoW) provide specialist advice on ecological constraints. Using the latest survey techniques and appropriate licenses, the CoW will identify potential constraints and advise on best practice and relevant legislation in terms of mitigation. For more information, see our dedicated ECoW page here.

We also provide post-construction monitoring to meet planning condition requirements or contractual obligations.

A large number of our clients are involved in the construction phase of developments, where the timings of species-specific mitigation can have serious implications on programme. Naturally Compliant have developed a survey and mitigation calendar that details when certain mitigation techniques can be deployed in addition to when surveys can be undertaken.
