An excellent experience - Thomson provided exactly the service we required in a very cost effective and timely manner.

Project Manager, Building Contractor

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’s involvement as part of the delivery team was key to producing an end product that both looked great but that also met with the design criteria, ensuring the scheme will continue to perform into the future.

John Sullivan, Senior Asset Manager, Eskmuir Group

The maps we produced for this project were used in the SDNP Local Plan and their team continues to utilise both the maps and tools we created to inform important ecological decisions across the South Downs National Park.

Project Manager, Thomson Ecology, habitat connectivity mapping

Confidently identifying non-native species from aerial imagery proved challenging but through the combined ecological and aerial image interpretation experience of our GIS team we were able to identify and map the distribution of six non-native species with an area of 23 km2.

Project Manager, Thomson Ecology, invasive species monitoring, South West

It was interesting to see how coastal habitats along the southwest coast have changed over time. This highlights how important measuring change is for such dynamic habitats.
