Obtaining geographical information for the natural environment

Throughout any project, it is essential that a considerate constructor takes a responsible attitude towards environmental issues.

This will help to ensure that the project does not have a detrimental effect on the natural environment.

All sites should be respectful and protecting of the environment, with the aim to enhance the natural environment for existing and future generations.

This site did this by doing the following:

  • Used a website called MAGIC to aid with their Environmental Management Plan for the site;
  • It is used as a simple visual aid in order to establish if there are any areas of significant importance with regards to built heritage (listed building, national monuments, world heritage sites etc) and ecology (nature reserves, ramsar, nature reserves, SSSI etc);
  • The site will flag up a vast range of geographical information from the natural environment sourced through a number of government organisations such as Natural England;
  • Should the site be located within one of these area or close to one of these area which could potentially be impacted, we can open early discussions with the relevant parties to make sure everyone is aware of our works and plan the works to minimise any potential impact on the area.
