With specifiers facing greater pressure to improve sustainability and biodiversity measures, WIENERBERGER UK and Ireland has launched a new specialist report exploring the role of eco-habitats in the drive for biodiversity net gain.
The Changing Shape of Biodiversity in the Built Environment has been prepared by environmental specialists at Wienerberger, addressing the challenges faced by the construction industry as they seek to meet enhanced biodiversity net gain requirements.
It sets out the regulatory drivers that are shaping modern developments, including the National Planning Policy Framework and Environment Act 2021, as well as changing consumer attitudes to outdoor spaces.
The specialist report introduces the benefits of eco-habitats such as bird boxes, bat boxes and bee bricks, providing a range of fuss-free solutions that can provide supplementary enhancements within a biodiversity net gain report. Experts from Wienerberger also offer installation and placement tips to help maximise nesting opportunities. It is available to download for free from Wienerberger’s website, providing a vital resource for anybody involved in the planning, design and construction of new buildings.
