The consortium has considerable expertise in Environmental Impact Assessment, Regulatory Impact Assessment, Strategic Environmental Assessment and Cumulative Impact Assessment. The Director and Associates have provided evidence for Environmental Statements and for Public Inquiries into major marine and estuarine developments. They have also informed Habitat Regulations Assessments and Appropriate Assessments for nature conservation designations. Most recently, the consortium has developed hazard and risk assessment and management frameworks such as the Bow-tie Analysis using ISO Industry-standard software.
