Ecology can be an important factor in gaining credits under BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH). AAe can provide a complete ecological assessment of a site from a Suitably Qualified Ecologist (as defined by BRE) and assess a site’s current ecological value and provide ways in which this can be retained and enhanced in order to maximise the credits that can be awarded under the scheme.
Services AAe can provide are:
- BREEAM/CfSH surveys;
- Complete the relevant template report to determine the number of credits that are achieved under the current scheme design;
- Provide recommendations of how additional credits could be achieved, using simple and cost-effective solutions;
- Provision of long term ecological management plans to accompany BREEAM assessments.
