Environmental

Mouchel’s Environment team helps clients understand and manage their sustainability and ecological issues. We use our diverse skills and services to ensure that our clients reduce their risk and exposure to the complex range of environmental regulations and standards affecting development of their projects and their day to day business operations.

We work across the full project life cycle and have extensive experience, primarily in the energy, waste, transport infrastructure, property development and maritime sectors. Comprising experienced professionals, our Environment team has the capacity and capability to tackle the entire range of challenges presented by large, complex projects, as well as to deliver specialist services addressing more discrete needs across the UK and Ireland, the Middle East and Australia.

Our capabilities include: Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA); planning, acoustics and vibration; air quality and odour; archaeology and built heritage; ecology and nature conservation; landscape and visual assessment; urban design; geotechnics and contamination; geology and soils; land services; hydrology and flooding; hydrogeology; and health impacts assessments. In addition, our maritime services include the design, build and maintenance of the whole range of maritime services.

Mouchel is one of the leading consultants in land quality having built up an extensive track record especially in investigation and remediation of former gasworks sites including the largest land remediation project ever undertaken in Ireland (Dublin gasworks), which won the prestigious Fleming Award.
