East Midlands Environmental Consultants (trading as EMEC Ecology) is a specialist ecological consultancy which seeks to provide the highest quality of service, tailored to the needs of its clients. Established in 1991, EMEC Ecology has grown to be a successful practice and a leader in its field. Our expanding client base reflects our ability to provide accurate, cost-effective solutions for our clients' varied ecological needs.
EMEC Ecology employs a team of highly skilled ecologists who have a wealth of practical experience and a strong client-focused approach. All staff are encouraged and trained to become members of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and all work is carried out in accordance with CIEEM's Code of Practice.
Based in the heart of the East Midlands, EMEC Ecology operates for its clients throughout the UK. It serves developers, planners, architects, power and extraction industries, utility companies, local authorities, government agencies and private individuals. Its varied portfolio of work ranges from major national research contracts and large-scale ecological impact assessments for housing and industry, through to management planning for nature reserves, bat surveys of barns and churches and habitat surveys of small-scale developments.
Most ecological surveys and mitigation work can only be undertaken at specific times of the year (click here for an ecological survey calendar). Thus, involving EMEC Ecology at a project's inception will help to avoid delays and allow the most effective service to be provided.
As a company, EMEC Ecology is committed to the principles of sustainable development. Its advice regularly enables clients to reduce the ecological impact of their operations and wherever possible it works with clients to secure ecological gain. The increasing take up of BREEAM provides new scope and recognition for including ecological enhancements within developments.
