“Babec have completed a number of biodiversity surveys and ecological reports for us. They are quick to respond, very professional and practical in their outlook, and always provide the work on time and to a high standard. We will definitely continue to use them in the future.”
Samantha Holliday, Associate at BuroHappold Engineering
“Babec proved to be an invaluable member of the team, working pro-actively to achieve a successful outcome and meet the Council’s objectives in terms of legal responsibilities, cost and programme. They were key in assisting to mitigate the ecological risk associated with the scheme.”
Rhys Hutchings, Contracts Manager at Crawley Borough Council
“Babec’s phase 1 habitat survey was very thorough and their toolbox talk provided clear guidelines to ensure the landscaping team could work effectively without disrupting established habitats.
Amanda Robinson, Public Realm Officer at CVU
“I contacted Babec after being informed by the council that I needed a bat report for planning. Babec explained the process and were soon on the ground completing dusk and dawn surveys. They then produced an easy to understand method statement for the council, who subsequently granted me planning consent. Babec helped progress my planning application and were friendly and professional throughout.”
