Services Provided

The site analysis for this project was focused on analyzing the site’s existing ecological composition, structure, and dynamics. We participated in the project team´s site visit offering ecological observations and insights, pointing out the ecosystem degrading processes and sharing the potential direction for ecological restoration and integration with the development program. A full report was produced after four days of on-site study detailing findings and recommendations, including biomimicry opportunities for the design of the development to follow.

 

Key Highlights

  • The importance of the coastal dune was made evident since its partial modification generated severe consequences in the adjacent ecology

  • The direction for the restoration of the coastal dune

  • Strategic direction for the overall ecological restoration of the site

  • Observed species and communities both terrestrial and marine were recorded and mapped providing insights for the integration of design and site
