Biodiversity Toolkit highly Commended for Innovation

The new biodiversity toolkit, developed by Waterman’s ecology specialists in Bristol, in collaboration with Berkeley Group, was recently Highly Commended within the Innovation category at the Constructing Excellence South West Built Environment Awards.

The toolkit is designed to help developers meet biodiversity targets by achieving a net gain for biodiversity in-line with planning policy requirements. It provides a detailed project management and Biodiversity Impact Assessment (BIA) calculator service; BREEAM pre-assessment summary; ecology survey calendar; species planting lists; and lists of national and local priority habitats and species to allow for effective ecological design.

Seb Fitzgerald, Senior Ecologist and one of the experts behind the new tool said; “It is an honour to receive this recognition. The new toolkit has already made a significant difference to a number of developments, and our aim is to continue to promote it on a national scale to help developer’.”

To find out more about the Waterman Biodiversity Toolkit and how it can help deliver a net gain for biodiversity on your client’s project, please contact Lee Mantle and Seb Fitzgerald in our Bristol office.
