Mabbett bolsters Ecology & Planning offering with Nevis Environmental asset acquisition

22nd March 2022 - Written by Suzanne Lindsay

We have taken another step in our strategic growth journey with the acquisition of the assets of Nevis Environmental Ltd (Nevis Environmental).   The acquisition of the independent ecology, environmental management, and planning services consultancy – which has offices in Inverness and Carlisle – will bolster our technical team (including enhancing technical services in: natural capital and land management, climate change and carbon, peatland services, ecology and environmental surveys, planning and development, construction environmental and operational monitoring and asset service) and skillsets and provision of environmental management support for infrastructure projects. We will enjoy enhanced geographic coverage following the deal with the addition of new Inverness and Carlisle offices.

Speaking about the investment, Mabbett Managing Director, Derek J. McNab, said:

“Mabbett has respected the strength of the Nevis Environmental technical team over recent years through their strong profile and long-established reputation for delivering quality ecology and planning consultancy services. Their team values and attributes make them a great fit for Mabbett and we look forward to integrating and working together to our mutual benefit in the years ahead.”

Kathryn Fraser, Director, Ecology & Environment Group, commented:

“Joining the Mabbett family is a great opportunity to expand our technical service offering and enhance our geographical coverage. I look forward to continuing to work with my team, enhancing the personal and first-class service offering we are renowned for and embracing the new opportunities the deal with Mabbett will bring.”

The acquisition of the assets of Nevis Environmental by Mabbett is the second major investment by the leading consulting firm in Q1, 2022, following the recent acquisition of GH Johnston Building Consultants (GHJ). A further major acquisition announcement is expected in early Spring with the group expansion coming on the back of a year of double-digit growth.
