Ecological Clerk of Works

Wetland Surveys Ireland have been involved in the supervision as an ECoW on a number of projects for larger industrial developments and clients.аThe primary role is to advise on compliance with the environmental planning conditions, such as hydrology, noise, air quality, river and land pollution, protected species and landscape, with preparation of compliance reports for clients and stakeholders and advisory reports for site managers/staff.

To demonstrate our experience as Ecological Clerk of Works a selection of recent projects that we have worked on is presented below.а
