The Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) and BREEAM Assessments are the national standard for the sustainable design and construction of new homes and all forms of non-residential development.
What we do
The BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes Ecological Assessments (CfSH) measure performance in several key areas including ecology. At Middlemarch Environmental, our team of ecological consultants is fully qualified to undertake ecological surveys and reporting for the Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) and BREEAM assessment. Our experience covers sites from single residential dwellings to large scale housing developments, schools and major industrial schemes.
Suitably Qualified Ecologists
In accordance with the governing guidelines, a number of the ecology credits are only available where a suitably qualified ecologist has been appointed to undertake a site survey and provide specialist advice. By working with us, you can be assured that our ecologists meet these stringent requirements and are qualified to carry out this work.
The reports that we produce are fully compliant with the specific guidelines of the BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH). Our input covers the distinct categories of the ecology chapter, including the ecological value of the development site, the protection of ecologically valuable features and how the site can be ecologically enhanced following development. Our report structure makes it easy for you and your appointed assessor to get the information you need, saving time and hassle.
In addition to ecology surveys for Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) and BREEAM, Middlemarch Environmental can also provide the following services:
- Production of 5 Year Habitat Management Plans for BREEAM development sites to ensure that the long term impact of the development on biodiversity is minimised.
