Environmental Clerk of Works

An Environmental Clerk of Works (EnvCoW), undertaking construction site supervision, is crucial to the minimisation of environmental impacts during works. All our EnvCoWs are highly experienced with many years of on-site practice and have a good relationship with the relevant statutory bodies. As well as being excellent practical ecologists, some have an engineering, forestry or water quality regulation background, bringing added dimensions to the post. As well as covering species and habitat, water quality and drainage, and COSHH and waste issues, the EnvCoWs ensure sustained and clear communication with both client and contractors.
