Since opening our Exeter office 12 months ago Ecosulis’s presence in the south west has continued to grow. We have secured a number of large projects for various clients across a range of sectors. Here is a selection of examples:
Ecosulis is delighted to support the south west charity Countryside Mobility (www.countrysidemobility.org) by donating an 8GB iPod Touch as a prize at their open day in May to launch their exciting new Countryside Mobility scheme!
The Countryside Mobility scheme provides easy access to the countryside for people with disabilities living in and visiting South West England through a mobility scooter hire scheme.
Wiltshire, 16th March 2011- Ecosulis has had a great start in 2011 and is delighted to have been awarded two prestigious habitat creation projects in quick succession. Following a competitive tendering process, Ecosulis were selected by the Environment Agency and are now mobilising teams to complete the work within the critical timeframes available.
To illustrate an example of a green infrastructure benefit – many drainage solutions in past years involved the use of large concrete pipes situated underground or concrete, channelised canals. New solutions would look to fully integrate environmental options, such as bio-engineered revetments, nearby ponds, reedbeds and/or swales to create a bio-engineered solution, linking low quality habitats with those of high quality.
Ecosulis held an internal Blog writing competition in November 2010 and we would love your help in choosing a winner! This competition was for Blogs written in November 2010 (uploaded November and late December 2010) and you will be able to vote until 31 January 2011.
All you need to do to participate is to read the Blogs and select your three favourite. The results of this questionnaire alongside the number of unique hits on the specific webpages will be used to identify a winner. The winner will be announced at the beginning of February 2011.
