Protecting the environment

We aim to leave every site in a better condition than when we arrived, ensuring minimal environmental impact on all our projects. Our goal is to deliver low-impact systems that simultaneously manage project risk while improving the UK’s watercourses.

As a result of our work we have already helped rehabilitate watercourses around the country and we’ve protected countless wildlife habitats to ensure they continue to thrive. If you choose to work with Robert Nicholas we will provide you with guidance on how to reduce the potential environmental impact of your project so you can experience similar benefits on or around your site.
