    PGCS were appointed by Essex Wildlife Trust to provide a full Structural Engineering Design solution following an intensive selection process.

    The structure, which was designed to be sympathetic to the environment, was built in the heart of a local wood adjacent to a reservoir where many species of birds are known to nest. The Architectural design solution evolved by taking into consideration the land terrain and the need to minimise environmental impact. This, in turn, resulted in a scheme that made use of advanced recycling techniques such a water and heat capture and reuse technologies.
