Memorandum of agreement for the appointment of an expert environmental consultant
Environmental investigations and audits have for some time been a growth area and the number of consultancies has mushroomed. There are now over 400 consultancies in the UK.
There are a wide variety of consultancies available, ranging from the very common, small domestic consultancy (turnover £100,000 or less) at one end of the market, to UK divisions of large foreign engineering and environmental consultancies at the other. Firms of chartered surveyors can now achieve specialisms as chartered environmental surveyors offering environmental expertise with an understanding of property as well as environmental issues. In addition, many of the UK engineering companies have set up dedicated divisions within their overall operating structure to provide these services.
