UK – PBA has been named Small-Scale Consultancy of the Year in the 2018 Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) awards.
Although part of a larger consultancy, the 10-person ecology team at PBA has developed its own reputation for providing authoritative advice to clients and delivering outstanding ecology projects. As well as outlining the high quality, practical outcomes that the team consistently provides, the PBA entry successfully demonstrated the team’s passion for sharing knowledge and good practice, promoting the profession, and developing staff.
Commenting on the win, Helen Evriviades, Associate Ecologist, said:
“This is a great result. Not only is it well deserved, it’s a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of the PBA team.”
Each year, CIEEM presents a series of awards to celebrate the achievements of the profession and of individual practitioners working within the ecological sector. The Consultancy of the Year award was launched for the first time this year to recognise successful consultancies delivering high quality ecological services whilst being an exemplar employer and advocate for the profession.
Keith Mitchell, PBA Chairman, commented:
“PBA is exceptionally proud of its Ecology team and the services they provide to our clients and communities. They have consistently demonstrated that they bring value to our clients through robust, evidence based consultancy advice. The winners were voted for by their peers which makes the award even more meaningful as it represents the respect our team has earned from the wider industry.”
The 2018 awards lunch was held in the Merchant Taylors' Hall in London on 21 June. The award was jointly presented to PBA and Greenspace Ecological Solutions.
