Press release September 2016

Twig Group, a Kent based company offering ecological contracting, grounds maintenance and solar farm maintenance services, will be hosting a panel discussion on avoiding unnecessary ecological pitfalls, at this year’s Construction Expo held at Kent Event Centre, Detling, Kent on Thursday 6th October.

Many in the construction industry have found ecology something that can be complicated, daunting and confusing; cause serious delays and costs to the planning process. The panel discussions provided by Twig Group at the Expo aim to explore the pitfalls in this area of construction and the possible implications of not understanding or appreciating the ecological issues of a site. Alongside this they will present practical solutions to overcoming some of these stringent requirements at sessions being held at 11am and 3pm.

The panel will comprise of:

  • David Banfield, Planning Director of Redrow Homes
  • Glen Ernest, Director at GDM Architects
  • David Eyre, Managing Director of the Twig Group
  • James Dickenson, Head of Ecology, Twig Group

Chairing the panel discussion Cheryl Causebrook, Chair of Constructing Excellence Kent Club

David Eyre, Managing Director, Twig Group says

“We are very pleased to be a part of the Construction Expo and share our expertise with the attendees. During the session the panel will discuss what ecological requirements should be considered when appraising a site for development and how to avoid costly delays if there are protected species on your site.  Additionally, the impact of invasive weeds is becoming more of an issue in developments and there is a greater interest in the ecological benefit of maintaining a development site during a prolonged planning process. We are grateful to our guests who agreed to give up their time also to share their knowledge with the industry.“

Twig Group can be found at stand 260 where they will be happy to talk further on their services and will offer you a unique refreshment. Working with the Old Dairy Brewery based in Rolvenden, Kent they have produced a full bodied Pale Ale with personalised branding.
