Ecological contracting services

Thomson Environmental Consultants’ habitat team provide practical solutions to compensate for loss of habitat caused by development and buildings works.

Our specialists design, create and restore habitats for wildlife on both brownfield and rural sites for a wide range of private and public sector clients.

We undertake practical work to turn ecological plans and recommendations into practice, supporting ecologists with protected species trapping and moving as required.

When development works adversely impact protected species and their habitats, we take measures which will mitigate damage, such as habitat creation for great crested newts, by way of a new pond.

The habitats management team have a great reputation for efficient and sensitive project management, with commitment to delivering projects on time, within budget and to the brief. Take a look at some of our previous projects.

Just a quick congratulations. The soil reports for the pond liners conducted by Thomson's are the leading standard across the project amongst all four contractors. Good work team!

Mathew Blackstock, EngTech MICE Site Engineer, Fusion JV

Thomson have assisted us from the early pre-tender stages of this project. The site team worked hard to ensure that Himalayan balsam clearance works were undertaken on time and in accordance with best practice. Their TIM software in particular, has proved to be of huge assistance. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Thomson Habitats on site. ”
