Appointed by one of the UK’s largest quarry operators Brushdale installed newt and reptile fence across a vast area ahead of plan deadlines.
- Location : South Gloucestershire
- Project : 2km of great crested newt fence, scrub clearance and habitat management
Health & Safety was paramount with explosives being detonated regularly on site and quarry trucks moving about near to our place of work. Hard ground was naturally present and we worked with the client to innovate and create solutions which ensured costs were capped, whilst the fence was installed in all areas to meet Natural England specifications.
Sensitive clearance of vegetation was required prior to trapping and translocation of GCN to newly created ponds and associated habitat nearby. Further management of these, and existing waterbodies has been carried out recently as part of our continued involvement with the project.
Brushdale were awarded a further SSIP accreditation from Avetta acknowledging
