Welcome to Peak Ecology
Peak Ecology Limited was established in 2006 and has developed into an established and well-respected specialist ecological consultancy working across Britain. The company is managed by Director, Jonathan Brickland and Technical Director, Jessica Eades, with a permanent team of ecologists expanding during the busier spring and summer months to manage the increased workload.
Our Mission is to provide clear, high quality and affordable ecological advice to public and private sector clients throughout Britain.
Delivering work to a high standard is important throughout the team and we ensure that work is allocated to appropriately experienced and licensed ecologists. All Peak Ecology staff operate under the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management’s Code of Professional Conduct. Furthermore, we are accredited through the ISO9001 standard, and our quality management and processes are audited both internally and externally.
Our clients are varied and represent a wide range of sectors including energy companies, property developers, planning consultants, architects and landscape architects, engineering and multi-disciplinary consultants, local authorities, government agencies, National Park Authorities, public bodies and NGOs. We have the capability and experience of delivering jobs of all sizes, from barn conversions to large complex Ecological Impact Assessments.
Our survey capabilities include Extended Habitat Surveys, detailed botanical assessments and a wide range of ornithology and protected species surveys. All of our work is supported by high quality GIS mapping. We also deliver the ecological components of BREEAM, Habitat Regulations Assessments and European protected species licensing. We also have a qualified boat team to undertake some of our aquatic survey work and a trained and experienced tree climbing team.
Working safely to high professional standards is of the utmost importance to Peak Ecology. We subscribe to several health and safety accreditations, PPE is provided as standard, and all work is undertaken in accordance with a site-specific risk assessment.
Above all, we value common sense. We pride ourselves on our helpful, knowledgeable staff, who take a pragmatic and client-oriented approach, give sound ecological advice, deliver clear and focused reports and do our best to give cost effective ecological solutions.
