Property Week ‘Management All-stars 2018’ awards shortlist for Biodiversity Toolkit

The new biodiversity toolkit, developed by Waterman’s ecology specialists in Bristol, in collaboration with Berkeley Group, has been shortlisted for Property Week’s ‘All-Stars 2018’ awards within the ‘Innovator/Systems Provider’ category.

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.

Lee Mantle, Waterman Associate Director of Ecology and one of the experts behind the new tool said; “It is exciting to receive news of our shortlisting for the award. The new toolkit has made a significant difference to a number of developments, and our aim is to continue to promote it on a national scale.”

Award winners will be announced at the Property Week Management All-Stars event on November 1st 2018 at London’s Grosvenor House. More information on the event and awards can be found here (http://pwmanagementallstars.com/pwmas2018/en/page/home).

The biodiversity toolkit was recently Highly Commended within the Innovation category at the Constructing Excellence South West Built Environment Awards.
