Bird box on office roof to attract displaced birds

Considerate constructors try to prevent negative environmental impacts as a result of works. When disruption is inevitable, sites should try to find ways to minimise their impact on the environment and support the local wildlife as much as possible.

See the examples below for how one site achieved this:

  • Built a 25m2 area on the roof of the three storey office (which is part of the project) to attract ground nesting birds displaced from their habitat by the construction work.
  • Area is bounded by steel, lined and filled with stone, requiring additional roof support design which added significant cost and effort.
  • This was made possible by collaboration between the client, local authority and environmental groups.
