Environmental impact assessments

Obtaining environmental approvals can be challenging and requires careful consideration and planning.  At BuroHappold we work with regulators and design teams at the early stages to identify key issues, incorporate mitigation measures and maximise sustainable solutions that will reduce the overall environmental impact.

Our team are experienced in providing comprehensive EIAs, including coordination and preparation of Environmental Statements covering the full range of technical services from desktop studies through to site investigations and complex modelling, to meeting legislative requirements.

With the capability of providing in-house technical specialists globally, we are able to provide an integrated approach and respond quickly to technical queries.  We provide a clear, staged approach from an early scoping and consultation process defining the assessment parameters, through to design input, baseline studies, production of the environmental statement and post planning consultation and public exhibitions.
