THE CHALLENGE

IKM was appointed to assess two proposed community campus developments in South Ayrshire for their potential to achieve credits under the Land Use and Ecology section of the BREEAM Technical Manual for the Non-Domestic Buildings.

THE SOLUTION

A Preliminary Ecological Appraisal (Phase 1 Habitat and protected species survey) was undertaken to assess the ecological value of each site in its current state and provide recommendations for further survey and mitigation.  A suite of bat activity surveys was undertaken and bat roosts were identified at each site, including a Soprano pipistrelle maternity roost.  IKM produced a BREEAM report advising of steps to be taken to protect and enhance the ecology of the sites.  A licence application and Species Protection Plan were prepared and IKM provided a licensed bat worker to supervise the demolition of the schools.
