Green Infrastructure describes the strategically planned network of multifunctional green space that exists in our towns and cities. Our urban ecologists have a wealth of knowledge surrounding the design and implementation of innovative Green Infrastructure (GI) solutions for developments across London and the UK, undertaking GI Audits and producing GI Strategies. We work with design teams to provide bespoke GI advice and design that can feed into site wide management plans, address planning conditions or complement CSR targets, building on our understanding of UK wide policy drivers and Local Authority requirements.
We also develop detailed specifications to ensure living roofs (Green and Brown Roofs) are designed and built to provide biodiversity opportunities for flora and fauna that complement local Biodiversity Action Plans and meet local planning policy. Our biodiverse roof specifications include a mix and depth that is most appropriate for the locality and building type. We advise on seed and plant lists of locally prominent species that have wildlife value and promote appropriate wildlife features to encourage locally important invertebrates, birds and other wildlife. We work with architects and landscape teams to maximise the number of CSH and BREEAM Land Use & Ecology credits available.
