THE CHALLENGE

A large number of redundant overhead line towers, between Boat of Garten and Strathdon, required to be dismantled and removed as they were no longer in use.  Many of the towers were sited in remote locations with difficult access and sensitive habitats.  IKM were appointed to manage the environmental aspects of the project to ensure that the dismantlement and removal of the towers was carried out as sensitively as possible.

THE SOLUTION

IKM carried out environmental surveys to identify sensitive habitats, water crossings and ecological features that required to be avoided and protected during the works.  IKM provided advice on the protected of sensitive habitats and the water environment.  Our ECoW monitored otter resting sites, carried out ecological surveys ahead of works and carried out environmental compliance auditing.
