Calculations are run in accordance with Natural England and DEFRA’s Biodiversity Metric 2.0 Guidance.
Nutrient Neutrality Assessments
Any development within the Solent and Poole Harbour areas will require Nitrogen Calculations to determine the impact your proposed development will have on local water bodies’ ability to continue to support wildlife.
Calculations are in accordance with Natural England guidelines and produce a Nutrient Neutrality Report along with mitigation recommendations where necessary.
Our licensed and qualified assessors can provide advice and guidance on achieving your required BREEAM rating.
Your proposed development will be assessed and you will be provided with a BREEAM Pre-Assessment Report to submit with your planning application.
Early engagement with a BREEAM Assessor ensures that your project can maximise its potential BREEAM score with minimal cost uplift and also ensures that any mandatory credits, which require early consideration, are not missed.
You will be guided through the BREEAM requirements, assessing your project at both design stage and post construction and submitting assessments to the BRE for certification in order to discharge planning conditions.
LEED Assessment can be a tricky process for projects in the UK. We specialise in helping projects attain certification through recognised crosswalks and evidence equivalencies between the UK and US requirements.
As with BREEAM, early engagement with a LEED AP can help maximise your project’s LEED Score potential as well as identifying the most cost-effective credits and ensuring that you don’t miss out on any credits with timing constraints.
We will assess your proposed development against LEED requirements, providing advice and guidance as well as all necessary reports. We can assist with collating the required evidence, ensuring the project team remain on track with targeted credits, liaising with GBCI and submitting all documentation for certification.

Often a project will wish to achieve WELL Certification in addition to another green building standard such as BREEAM or LEED. We will assist your team in simplifying the process and submitting the required documentation as well as highlighting paths to maximise the scoring potential of all required standards.
We will provide all advice and guidance and required reports as well as evidence collation and validation, liaising with the IWBI and submitting all documentation for certification.
