The Team /
Steve Maguire

Senior Ecologist

Steve has been working as a professional ecologist for over 7 years, graduating in 2009 with a BSc in Conservation Biology before starting as a self-employed surveyor in 2010. He has developed a broad range of skills including managing and undertaking Phase 1 & 2 field surveys, ecological clerk of works, report production, mitigation design and input into BREEAM assessments and European Protected Species licences (bats), as well as preparation of ecological management plans and Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIAs).

He has worked on a wide variety of schemes from small domestic to large infrastructure projects, most recently working closely with lighting engineers to reduce obtrusive light spill from riverside developments, retaining important dark corridors for light-shy bats along the River Avon in Bath.

He currently holds protected species licences for white clawed crayfish and great crested newts from both Natural England and Natural Resources Wales, and is working toward his Class 1 bat licence.
