Solving environmental problems

In thirty years, we’ve delivered projects of every size and scope. From bat surveys in lofts to the largest infrastructure contracts in the South West.


CEC provided the construction phase ecological elements of the £300m Carland Cross to Chiverton Cross duelling. We were really impressed with the experience of the ecologists on the project, including large teams of Ecological Clerks of Works. CEC also helped us deliver various ecological enhancements like mammal passes and a bat house to help mitigate for the impacts of the road scheme and we found their expertise and flexibility on a scheme of this size invaluable.
