Our Ethos

At Purple Plover, our ethos is to keep things simple. We understand that you aren’t environmental experts, so we don’t talk in jargon and are with you every step of the way.

We believe that it is possible to work in construction and other industries without causing unnecessary harm to the environment. We voluntarily carbon offset our involvement in any project and our website is hosted on a carbon neutral platform.

How we can help

We are here to help you with your environmental issues so you can concentrate on running your business. Whether you need a new ecological survey, an ECoW for a new or existing project or just some environmental advice, we can help. We have many years of experience working in remote and difficult locations in the highlands and islands of Scotland. The more challenging the environment, the more we want to hear from you.

Ecology Surveys

Many projects require ecological surveys to be undertaken in order to gain planning permission or for works to proceed. At Purple Plover we have the skills and protected species licenses necessary to carry out the ecological surveys your project requires.


With experience of undertaking both ecological and environmental clerk of works roles across a broad range of construction projects, you can be assured we will be able to assist you with your ECoW needs.

Environmental Advisor

An Environmental Advisor can provide your project with the expertise and advice necessary to keep your project moving and compliant with environmental law. We can assist with obtaining specialist licenses, advise on best environmental practice and offer expertise either remotely or on site as required.
