Trinity Consultants, Inc.® (Trinity), an international environmental, health, and safety consulting firm, announces that it has acquired Ecological Survey & Assessment Limited (ECOSA) of North Baddesley, Hampshire, U.K. ECOSA collaborates with clients to comply with ecology regulations, secure necessary consents, obtain protected species licenses, and deliver ecological compensation and enhancement measures required as part of the planning process. U.K. legislation requires that Local Authorities consider the potential impact of any development on the biodiversity of a site and the nearby area. ECOSA's clients include architects, housing developers, construction companies, education providers, conservation organizations, private home owners, and planning authorities. Founded in 1999, ECOSA comprises ecologists who are licensed to address the needs of protected species including bats, hazel dormouse, and great crested newt.
ECOSA founder and Managing Principal Ecologist Simon Colenutt will continue to lead the team, providing technical expertise, client management, and staff development. According to Mr. Colenutt, “It has been a pleasure getting to know Trinity and its business model. Trinity's proven track record in acquiring specialty EHS companies and helping them to grow is certainly impressive and holds great promise for ECOSA and our staff. We, as a team, at ECOSA are particularly excited about the potential that the acquisition has created to expand in terms of geographical areas and services offered. This would be the realization of our longer term business plan. We look forward to this new phase in the history of ECOSA. ”
Trinity Managing Director Mike Remsberg will oversee integration of ECOSA with Trinity. He noted, “We are excited about the specialty expertise that ECOSA brings to our organization and the excellent team that Simon has assembled. Their knowledge supplements our growing ecology business and broader environmental services.”
