Environmental Planning

Precaution. Analyse. Report.

Environmental planning is oriented towards desirable conditions for the environment and human beings. Environmental planning ensures the co-ordination of individual instruments and integrates environmental policy in all areas, such as spatial planning, individual plans and environmental impact assessments. We take environmental and social aspects into consideration. That way, we achieve sustainable development.

Environmental Compatibility

Assess. Organise. Report.

The environmental impact assessment (EIA) is the central eco-political instrument for environmental protection. Environmentally relevant projects are assessed for environmental impacts. As part of the regulatory approval process, the environmental impact assessment aids decision making on the permissibility of projects. It is the first hurdle for project implementation. With our detailed presentation of potential project-related environmental effects, the concept of measures and a balanced discussion of the options, we prevent failure of the project due to the EIA.

Tasks

  • Examining the legal requirements of environmental impact assessments
  • Determining the investigation program; that is, the investigation space and depths
  • Writing of reports to statutory requirements
  • Involvement of the public and government authorities

Our Services

  • Screening: examining the legal requirement of environmental impact assessments
  • Scoping: determining investigation programs
  • Recording and evaluating relevant protective goods, such as human beings, flora, fauna and habitats, soil, water, climate and air, landscape and recreation, cultural and material goods
  • Determining possible effects of the projects, conflict analysis with respect to protective goods
  • Conceptualisation of measures to avoid, reduce and offset adverse effects on protective goods
  • Discussion of options and identification of sustainable solutions
  • Project presentation and moderation

Your Benefits

  • Legal security
  • Environmentally sustainable operations
  • Sustainability of resources
  • Requirements for the project implementation

Landscape Design

Assess. Create. Support.

Landscape planning is an ecological and creative subject between the conflicting priorities of spatial planning, ecology, conservation and various other areas. It serves proactively as a key planning instrument of nature protection and landscape conservation. Areal- and profile-oriented landscape planning supports and steers economic development and helps to shape it in an ecologically sustainable manner. With our landscape planning, we have set ourselves the goal of maintaining the productivity of eco-systems as the basis of life for people.

Tasks

  • Creating urban land-use landscape plans as specialist areal plans for municipal land-use planning in our role as preliminary construction management planners
  • Creation of urban land-use open-space plans for development planning in our role as committed construction management planners
  • Creating maintenance and development plans for protected areas and protected objects
  • Creation of landscape maintenance plans for projects in outside areas

Our Services

  • Recording and evaluating relevant protective goods, such as human beings, flora, fauna and habitats, soil, water, climate and air, landscape and recreation, cultural and material goods
  • Compiling basic data as decision support for planning and projects for a sustainable process
  • Pointing out the existing and desirable environmental conditions
  • Preparing models and examples for the development
  • Identification of measures for the prevention, mitigation and compensation of adverse effects
  • Applying nature-protection intervention regulations and accounting for intervention and compensation

Your Benefits

  • Legal security
  • Description of environmental objectives
  • Damage prevention through consideration of flood protection, climate change and health protection, such as the preservation of recreation areas and open spaces as well as the protection of biodiversity
  • Directing land use into less sensitive areas
  • Individual solutions for projects

Environmental Reporting

Environmental Reporting

In the process of construction site management planning, environmental reports describe and evaluate the results of environmental assessments carried out during the plan development. Initially, the environmental protection goals related to the planning are listed. On this basis, we determine the likely environmental effects of land use and development planning. The planning of an alternative test and the development of measures to prevent, reduce or compensate for adverse effects ensues. The result of the environmental report is taken into account when weighing competing interests. Environmental reports of companies and institutions describe objectives, measures and results. In this, environmental protection is a part of information policy and marketing. In our environmental reports, we explain the corporate environmental policy, describe the established environmental guidelines and designate the target performance level and also the implementation timeframe.

Tasks

  • Set examination program for study space and depth
  • Write reports to statutory requirements
  • Involve the public and government authorities

Our Services

  • Recording and evaluating relevant protective goods, such as human beings, flora, fauna and habitats, soil, water, climate and air, landscape and recreation, cultural and material goods
  • Determining possible effects of the projects, conflict analysis with respect to protective goods
  • Conceptualising measures to avoid, reduce and offset adverse effects on protective goods
  • Discussing options and identification of sustainable solutions
  • Compiling the basis of considerations and preparing the due consideration processes

Your Benefits

  • Legal security
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Integration of the public
  • Transparency in planning and decision-making processes

Water Resources Development Planning

Create. Protect. Comply.

Inland water bodies have many functions in our cultural landscapes. They are used as waterways, hold back heavy precipitation and flood water, prevent retention or are used for leisure and recreation. In addition, they are habitats for our diverse flora and fauna. Maintenance carried out on and in the water can ensure that the water bodies can fulfil their functions. We undertake these tasks on your behalf.

Tasks

  • Creating legal certainty and administrative security
  • Ensuring technical quality
  • Fulfilling biological obligations

Our Services

  • Detecting deficiencies and their causes
  • Taking measures for the elimination of deficiencies
  • Development of the bed and bank structure
  • Planning of the surrounding environment
  • Cross-linking the water bodies with flood plains and existing bodies of water
  • Adopting measures to improve the water-body structure

Your Benefits

  • Ensuring the functions of bodies of water and their surroundings
  • Certainty of meeting deadlines, planning and cost safety
  • Offering expert support
  • Many years of experience and local expertise
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from a single source

Permitting Management

Safeguard. Maximise. Achieve.

Water care and water development are implemented through the Water Framework Directive. Proposals that safeguard the water supply and ecosystem, the landscape and the common good are approved. All measures are subject to regulatory approval. We utilize our room to manoeuvre to your advantage to reduce the cost of water maintenance. Channelling water runoff and improving ecological conditions are a must for us.

Tasks

  • Having room to manoeuvre to reduce the costs of water maintenance, while at the same time organising water drainage to improve ecological conditions
  • Achieving the objectives of the Water Framework Directive
  • Description of the measures requiring approval

Our Services

  • Clarification of hydraulic scope and hydraulic performance
  • Testing of different options for modified water care
  • Drafting models for the practical testing of modified maintenance approaches
  • Applying for Water Framework Directive permits
  • Preparing application documents according to § 36 Water Resources Act (WHG)
  • Preparing application documents according to provincial water acts
  • Submission of the application documents to licensing authorities

Your Benefits

  • Secure planning of approval-ready water development and water conversation measures
  • Scheduling and cost control
  • Expert support
  • Many years of experience and local expertise
  • Regional networking
