The Ecology Consultancy launch office in Wakefield

Temple’s sister company, The Ecology Consultancy – a leading ecological consultancy – has opened a new office in Wakefield. This follows the launch of their Midlands office in August and Temple’s Manchester office, launched in October, which all forms part of the Group’s wider 2020 growth strategy, announced at the beginning of this year.

The Ecology Consultancy will now be able to offer high-quality ecology consultancy services and bespoke wildlife conservation solutions to clients across the North; building upon their reputation for providing technical expertise, pragmatic advice and a wide range of ecological services to the development, planning and construction sectors across much of the UK.

Leading the establishment of this new Wakefield office will be Associate Director Dr Sarah Cox, a chartered ecologist and environmentalist, who has joined The Ecology Consultancy from Keystone Environmental, where she was Head of Ecology. Sarah will be based primarily at the Wakefield Office but will also regularly operate from Temple’s Manchester office.

The Ecology Consultancy’s Technical Director Giles Coe says of the office opening: “the new office represents the next stage in The Ecology Consultancy’s plans to provide comprehensive coverage for projects wherever they may be situated in the UK. In order to provide a competitive and bespoke service to our clients it is essential not only that we are well placed geographically to access sites, but that we employ local staff with an in-depth knowledge of wildlife issues in their region”.
