Bat Roost Creation - BAE systems

Darwin Ecology Ltd. have designed and constructed three replacement bat roosts on redundant pill boxes for BAE Systems in Bridgewater, Somerset. The former manufacturing plant has been decommissioned and is to be replaced with a sustainable energy business park. Several low level bat roosts were destroyed under a bat mitigation licence implemented by Ecology Solutions Ltd. Darwin Ecology Ltd. worked in partnership with Ecology Solutions Ltd. as a specialist ecological contractor to design and build the new 5m x 4m roosts on small pillboxes. The roosts have all been optimised for bat use providing a diverse range of access points into crevice and void roosting areas, whilst minimising heat loss and drafts to create the optimal internal environments for bats.
Bat Roost Mitigation and Enhancement 2011 – Woodhurst, Sussex Healthcare

Bat Roost Mitigation and Enhancement – Woodhurst, Sussex Healthcare

Darwin Ecology Ltd. was appointed on behalf of Sussex Healthcare Ltd. to provide protected species (bats and reptiles) and BREEAM survey and assessment advice, in support of a planning application to convert a former 18th century manor house into a diagnostic treatment centre. Successful mitigation and enhancement schemes were provided for Brown Long-eared and Pipistrelle bat maternity roosts, and a small population of common reptiles.
Ecological Landscaping Scheme and Pond Creation 2011/12 – CGG Veritas, Crawley

Ecological Landscaping Scheme & Pond Creation – CGG Veritas, Crawley

Darwin Ecology Ltd has implemented two phases of wildlife enhancement landscaping schemes to transform the company's recreational field space into a wildlife haven. Wildflower meadow turf, deadwood habitat piles, tree and shrub planting, and the creation of a large wildlife pond will undoubtedly attract an array of wildlife and give a fantastic display of wildflowers for the staff to enjoy throughout the year. This type of eco-planting scheme looks great, is fantastic for wildlife and has the added benefit of significantly increasing a scheme's potential to score highly in the BREEAM assessment criteria.

The project was a welcome change from traditional landscaping schemes and gave the whole company a lift and feel good factor of giving something back to the little things in life. After the success of the first phase of works we have been invited back to re landscape the grounds around a new car parking area and overflow offices. Native and wildlife beneficial plants have been used to create ornamental beds set amongst areas of stunning wildflower meadows, native trees and hedging to create a scheme that will boost the wildlife potential whilst looking good. Landscape design and planting plans are carefully composed by our associated landscape architect Svend Rumbold of Rumbold-Ayres.
