High tech Environmental Impact Assessments require not only some advanced equipment and software, but the knowledge of how to use them. Henwood Environmental Solutions makes a significant effort to stay on the ball with the very latest in EIA technology.
Our global information system ( GIS) pulls data, software and hardware together into a cohesive unit. This makes the capture and analysis of Geo referenced information comprehensible and usable. High tech GIS allows us to interpret a broad array of data in a whole approach. In short, when HES conducts an EIA or an environmental audit, we have access not only to all of the information, but to all of the information in its most readily usable and cross referential forms. Our investment in GIS tech allows us to present an extremely accurate and comprehensive image of the environmental status quo, as well as the projected future impacts and possible repercussions of any actions or developments undertaken.
Henwood Environmental Solutions is a company that takes integrity very seriously, and having integrity often comes down to whether or not you have access to high quality accurate information. The two words, accuracy and integrity are almost synonymous. In the realm of environmental impact assessment, accuracy is integrity.
A clear picture obtained by careful, scientific application of this technology is a valuable asset for developers. Construction in and around Nelspruit in Mpumulanga where Henwood Environmental Solutions is based, requires significant capital investment and knowing the impacts before they occur is key to correctly identifying the level and scope of investment required. Members of the public often assume that an Environmental Impact assessment is something used to fight off development but this is inaccurate. EIA and the technology we use are all about helping developers and builders to comply with legislation so that their projects can be effected with a minimum of environmental damage (sometimes even a negative amount of damage - some projects actually benefit the environment) and without unforeseen expenditures and problems. In other words, it's all about responsibility and there's that word again: INTEGRITY.
