Think about nature conservation during the planning process
Switzerland’s natural resources are increasingly exploited. Intense construction, including outside the designated building zone, recreational pursuits and the expansion of the urban sprawl place constant pressure on our natural landscape. This makes it all the more important to protect, connect and enhance the ecology of habitats.
It is possible to take appropriate measures to alleviate conflicts of interest by adopting a forward-looking approach to project development and incorporating the necessary specialist expertise at an early stage. We will support you to plan and implement your project in a sustainable manner in harmony with nature.
- Ecological surveys and evaluations of habitats and paths between habitats, habitat monitoring
- Planning and implementing measures for ecological alternatives within construction projects, as well as habitat improvement schemes
- Developing ecological plans and detailed projects for various types of habitat
- Surveying and monitoring neophytes, evaluating and designing control measures
Extension of the Zurich Herdern service systems, ecological Replacement measures, habitat assessment
The extension structures for the newly built SBB service system are located on the contaminated Herdern site, a previous landfill site as well as an area with valuable fauna that provides a habitat for various, protected animal and plant species. Various measures for the protection of the fauna and flora had to be implemented as part of an environmentally compatible project implementation (requirements in the environmental impact report).
