Ecological Surveys and Assessments, Arboriculture Surveys and Coastal Engineering Appraisals.
Obsidian regularly advises developers on geotechnical, environmental and waste issues as part of the planning process. Due to the ever expanding requirements of planning application requirements ecological and habitat surveys are required, even at the Outline Stage. In addition we are being asked to provide Tree Surveys by a qualified Arboriculturist to BS 5837 (2012), including a tree management plan at the Outline Stage.
Due to the expertise available at Obsidian in the assessment of coastal process, inspection and design of concrete and rock armour revetments and breakwaters, we are collaborating and assisting other consultants in the UK on a variety of coastal engineering and sea defence projects.
