Infrastructure

Our ecology teams work on infrastructure projects around Australia supporting fauna and flora management during construction activities including new rail sites, road and bypass developments, and a range of local Government construction projects. Providing consultation and management plans for the project’s environmental approval process, through to implementation of required fauna and flora activities onsite during pre-clearance, construction and demobilisation phases.

ASSESSMENTS & MANAGEMENT PLANS

Pre-construction fauna, flora and vegetation assessments to determine the presence of ‘Matters of National Environmental Significance’ (MNES) species on the project site. Develop species management plans with focus on avoidance and mitigation measures on identified MNES species present/impacted by the construction activities.

OFFSET MANAGEMENT

Offset Management for rare, endangered or vulnerable plant species impacted from the construction activities including translocating species to rehabilitation sites for revegetation trials. Flagging significant plant species and placement of barriers around significant vegetation areas to restrict access or disturbance.

WEED MANAGEMENT & SUVRVEYS

Weed management and control to avoid weeds being spread in access tracks particularly declared weeds, declared plants and invasive grasses. Weed surveys during and post construction on access tracks, contractor yards and vehicles/equipment.

FAUNA SPOTTER/CATCHERS

Fauna spotter/catchers present prior to and during clearance activities, to clear all tracked animals before clearance commences. Fauna trapping and release program to relocate identified significant species impacted by the construction activities and rehabilitated to suitable areas.
