An ecology consultant performs surveys and research to offer advice on several environmental issues, such as types of habitats, animal species, and plant species present. The demand for ecological consultants has increased markedly in recent times, due to the introduction of new environmental laws in Britain.

The complexity and volume of environmental laws is continuing to increase each year. Here at Indigo Surveys, we have at our disposal a highly-skilled and dedicated team of ecology consultants to help clients conserve their immediate ecology. The completion of ecological consultancy work is dependent on several factors, including; seasonal constraints, planning circumstances, and budget.

What does an ecology consultant do?

Ecology consultancy specialists provide a variety of services to organisations and individuals. Indigo Surveys is a large multi-disciplinary consultancy firm, we have employed several specialists with vast experience in landscape design, forestry, arboricultural, and estate management expertise and experience.

We also have certified and experienced consultants with vast experience in other environmental conservation issues like water quality, air quality, and reclaiming contaminated land. Our consultants help businesses to create policies and deal with financial and legal matters. A certified ecology consultant is also a key player in helping wildlife, local authority and conservational agencies complete core research projects.

Ecological consultancy specialists also help individuals and conservation agencies implement mitigation and translocation schemes, such as animal trapping and relocation. Ecological specialists also provide their clients with professional advice on various issues including wildlife legislation and nature conservancy. Ecological consultants are also employed to perform routine fauna and flora surveys.

What should I look for in a good ecology consultant?

Certified and experienced ecological consultants help individuals and companies to reduce their environmental impacts. Given that ecology specialists work in various areas including waste management, air quality, water pollution, and soil contamination, you should always hire consultants who have been tested and reputed for offering cost-effective ecological consultancy services specific to your needs. You should focus on five key areas when looking for quality and affordable ecology consultancy services.

– Ability to work to your requirements: The main role of ecological consultancy firms is selling nature conservancy knowledge to other people. Here at Indigo Surveys, we focus on creating professional and tangible end products like ecological reports and presentations. Professional and experienced ecological consultants must demonstrate an ability to present understandable and well-written ecological reports.

– Ability to meet deadlines: Certified and experienced ecology consultants complete projects on budget and time. Your chosen ecological consultants must demonstrate the ability to work under pressure and effectively meet deadlines. Experienced ecological consultants also need to demonstrate exceptional ability to multitask, plan ahead of time and manage time efficiently.

– Knowledge of the current ecological regulations: Clients hire ecological consultants to help them remain compliant with the latest British and European environmental laws and regulations. An ideal ecology consultant must be up-to-date with all the updates and trends in the British environmental sector.

– Ability to research and perform data analysis: Ecological consultants can only properly assess ecological issues by first performing in-depth research to identify problems and recommend the right solutions.

– A collection of professional skills: Experienced and skilled ecology consultants can offer insight across various areas related to their work, like environmental issues, economic impact, and engineering regulations. The aforementioned skills provide ecology consultants with the ability to provide you with insight on how the ecology of your site factors into a range of different financial and legal considerations.

“I got a phone call on the day I enquired about your services. It was very efficient and Andrew explained exactly how things would unfold. The arrangement had to be made via my estate agents as I was in the process of purchasing a property. Indigo Surveys agreed to liaise with my estate agent which made life much easier for me. Although a tree survey is a costly exercise, Indigo were out of 4 companies I contacted, the cheapest and most efficient. All arrangements were clearly outlined to me with dates and times, no let downs, and no changing of appointments.”

“Visu Verum have retained Indigo Surveys to undertake measured surveys and tree services for various projects over the last 5 years and have always found the price, quality and customer service to be excellent. Andrew Turnbull is exceptionally helpful, easy to contact and always responds to queries in a timely manner.”

“I have worked with Indigo on many school projects. Many ran at the same time and had very short pre-construction programmes. Indigo were proactive and able to meet the challenging programmes, which enabled us to meet all submission dates for approval. We were kept aware of all ecology/arboricultural issues from the outset.”
