Ecology for New Developments



Will O’Connor, Director and Principal Ecologist at MKA Ecology, looks at ways that habitats which reflect local landscapes can be encouraged within construction projects to deliver biodiversity gains. He covers solutions such as green roofs, bird and bat boxes, and creating connected habitats for wildlife which can also add value for the people living and working in these new developments.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
