Commercial and residential development

Commercial & Residential Development

As the UK’s leading specialist environmental consultancy, we can add considerable value to your commercial and residential development projects. Our expertise in engaging with planning authorities and statutory agencies helps deliver successful development consents outcomes. From design to delivery, our comprehensive suite of services help avoid unnecessary costs and maximise opportunities for your development and the environment.

We understand the complexity of environmental regulation within the planning process. We partner our clients to deliver cost effective solutions to environmental issues that respect progress and the natural word.

Our team of experts can advise during the design stage on the best ways to avoid or mitigate ecological impacts. Early engagement about the environmental aspects of your commercial or residential development helps to limit cost and avoid unnecessary budget or program impacts.

With growing regulation on development, and increasing environmental requirements, Thomson are the go-to partner for your next project. We provide the full range of environmental services under one roof and can streamline the management of environmental aspects of your development.

Our suite of services includes terrestrial and aquatic ecology surveys and mitigation, arboricultural surveys, flood risk assessments, digital mapping services as well as vegetation clearance, habitat creation and landscaping works. Our team can prepare BREEAM and CfSH assessments, Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) strategies, ecological impact assessments, and protected species licence applications. We will liaise with the local planning authority and statutory agencies (such as Natural England) about environmental matters on your behalf.

We also provide ecological input for construction environment management plans and ecological and arboricultural method statements to support the development phases of your project.

With increasing focus on sustainability in the planning process, Thomson’s experts help you to meet and exceed sustainability, climate and carbon goals through climate resilience and nutrient neutrality modelling, embodied carbon calculations and biodiversity net gain assessments.

As the leading specialist environmental consultancy, our focus is on helping you obtain successful planning outcomes. We are trusted, agile, innovative, and responsive to client’s needs. We support you when you deliver the most challenging projects and we have a track record of doing so, at scale.

Whether your project is on land or in water, we have the expertise to provide you with straightforward advice from the start, backed up with the full range of services and solutions that you need.
