Consultation and Survey

We’re here to help you take your project forward with biodiversity in mind, from the very first assessment, through to design, installation and monitoring. We can help you identify and assess the ecological impact objectives (EIOs) and create a design engineering report to deliver your primary infrastructure goals. Our deployment plan will take you through to successful installation, whilst our site surveys can target the metrics you require to confirm your project’s success. Whether you need just a small level of report, or the whole lot, we’re here to help you every step of the way.

  • Nature inclusion plan – make sure that biodiversity is taken into consideration when it comes to your next development with our ecological impact objectives (EIOs), Biodiversity Enhancement Design, Ecological Monitoring Plan and Ecological Impact Assessment.
  • Project execution plan – here to ensure your project goes off without a hitch, it incorporates: a lifting plan, deployment plan, feasibility study and also includes licencing application support.

  • Site survey – from biodiversity to engineering, we can provide the support you need to incorporate nature inclusive design in your project.
  • Design engineering report – with unparalleled knowledge of our designs, we can demonstrate the bespoke requirements for your projects with consideration to the hydrodynamic interactions of your site.

“Kier have been very satisfied and pleased with ARC Marine throughout the preconstruction and construction stages of the Newlyn Tidal R&D project. ARC Marine have fabricated and delivered exceptional Intertidal reef cube® ECO armour units for the project where all parties, including Kier, the Environment Agency and Atkins, have been very impressed with the quality of finish of the units. Overall a very exceptional service from ARC Marine and would highly recommend.”

Jack Walker, Site Agent / Chartered Engineer, Kier Infrastructure – Regional Civil Engineering

“reef cubes® is a unique product that could reach a massive global market. Marine-i has been proud to help ARC Marine develop and test their amazing new approach to marine conservation and in particular, its application to marine renewable energy. Their pioneering products have the potential to improve the health of our oceans for generations to come.”

Alex Whatley, University of Plymouth

"ARC Marine are providing 25% of the reef blocks for the Newlyn project. Their blocks offer multi-functional benefits, such as biodiversity enhancing design and low-carbon fabrication. The development of viable alternatives to carbon intensive and non-sustainable solutions such as reinforced concrete, or quarried rock, is hugely important in order to meet the EA’s organisational targets to achieve net zero by 2030. More broadly, decarbonisation of the coastal and subsea infrastructure industry will also provide an important contribution to wider UK pledges on climate change."

Justin Ridgewell, Coastal Advisor for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Environment Agency

“The idea of a carbon-neutral reef cube® that can be used to help rehabilitate reef ecosystems is exciting – we really need to do everything we can to give coral reefs a break”
