GL Garrad Hassan offers the complete range of permitting and environmental services, to assist project developers in obtaining the permits they require. The services include detailed constraints analysis, environmental assessment management, land-use planning, noise propagation modelling, visual effects assessments, electromagnetic interference (EMI) studies, wildlife studies (bird and bat baseline monitoring, etc.), archaeology and heritage studies, as well as stakeholder consultations.
By combining these environmental services with GL Garrad Hassan’s meteorology and engineering services, project developers benefit from cost efficiencies and minimise their development risk. For example, by commissioning a detailed constraints analysis concurrently with preliminary layouts, developers can obtain a clear picture of the land actually available for development, and by undertaking stakeholder engagement activities as early as possible, they can improve their management of project risks.
