PJC Consultancy specialises in tree surveys conforming to the requirements of BS5837: 2012 Trees in Relation to Design, Demolitions and Construction. Whether the development is for residential or commercial use, Local Planning Authorities require the input of a trained arboriculturalist in all situations where trees are present on, or adjacent to, a construction site.
PJC Consultancy can carry out the necessary work and produce documents detailed under BS5837:2012, including:
- Tree Constraints Plans showing root protection areas and crown spreads plotted using AutoCad.
- Tree Protection Plans showing tree protection and ground protection measures.
- Arboricultural Impact Assessments (AIAs) may be required as part of a planning application.
- Arboricultural Method Statements (AMSs) usually required to discharge planning conditions.
- Construction Site Monitoring and inspection to ensure tree protection measures remain in place to comply with LPA conditions.
In addition to helping with the requirements of BS5837, PJC Consultancy can offer advice on specialist construction methods such as:
- Porous surfacing within root protection areas.
- Specialist construction methods for foundations within root protection areas.
- Installation of services close to tree root systems using Airspade technology.
