Building with Nature is Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s pioneering first certification scheme for green infrastructure. Encompassing the planning and design stages of development, as well as the long-term maintenance of green infrastructure, it’s now being rolled out across the UK. https://www.buildingwithnature.org.uk/
This is amazing recognition for all the ecological work that goes into Silverlake ranging from the planning and design through to development works and the long-term management.
After weeks of assessment and site visits by the Wildlife Trust inspectors, this is proof that conservation and development can go hand in hand when managed as one entity.
This is big news for our principal contractor and recommended construction partner, Conservation Builders Ltd, too as they are the ones who have implemented many of the ecological designs.
The Service Charge Team, managed by HML Andertons, are obviously key as they ensure the long-term management of all habitats that have been created but the biggest congratulations must go to everyone’s favourite ecologist, Dr Phoebe Carter for her outstanding work in helping the flora and fauna at Silverlake thrive.Back to news
