Landscape Architecture

For the approval of plans and projects, consideration of nature conservation issues - usually based on the Federal Nature Conservation Act - is essential. In addition to the GICON environmental management department, whose range of services includes the preparation of environmental impact studies, the landscape planning department mainly deals with the preparation of expert reports.

Landscape planning

  • Landscape plans
  • Green space plans
  • Landscape management accompanying plans (LBP)
  • Landscaping Execution Plans (LAP)
  • Nursing and development plans
  • Intervention / compensation balances according to § 15 BNatSchG (outdoor area)
  • Green space balances based on municipal statutes, e.g. B. Tree protection or greening statutes (indoor area)
  • Requests for exemption from the prohibition rules on protected areas
  • Fauna-Flora-Habitat (FFH) - compatibility assessment according to the Habitats Directive (Directive 92/43 / EEC)

Protection of species

  • Floristic and faunistic mapping
  • Specialist articles on species protection law in accordance with § 44 BNatSchG
  • Planning of CEF measures

Environmental construction supervision

  • Environmental construction supervision (UBB) for the approval-compliant implementation of environmentally relevant measures or legally compliant implementation of construction measures
What is landscape planning?
Landscape planning deals with the planning of measures to preserve, change, maintain, restore and develop the landscape and its natural balance as a basis of life for people, animals and plants within the framework of state conservation and nature conservation. It has the task of formulating the goals and principles of nature conservation and landscape conservation for the respective country (landscape program), the respective region / district / etc. Formulated in the federal nature conservation laws (BNatSchG) and the federal states (state nature conservation laws). (Landscape framework plan), the respective municipality (landscape plan), in some German states also for parts of municipalities (green order plan). The measures developed by landscape planning are used for specific projects in the landscape plan,
Which addressees does landscape planning address?

Landscape planning addresses different groups of addressees who use them for different tasks:

  • Nature conservation authorities
  • other planning agencies and regulatory authorities
  • Interested public, associations, land users
What are the benefits of drones in ecological construction monitoring (ÖBB)?

Drones are mainly used in ecological construction monitoring (ÖBB) and for photo documentation. ÖBB is the checking of compliance with measures that guarantee the protection of the environment and minimize adverse effects on flora and fauna. This includes, for example, occupancy checks of bird nests on utility poles. Here, aerial flight with drones has decisive advantages. Instead of turning off the power and putting people in danger when climbing poles, using drones is faster, safer and less disruptive for the birds being observed. Basically, drones are excellent for all areas where humans have a hard time getting to or need help getting to. For example, this can include rooftops of houses or conservation areas that are difficult to access.

Our performance aspiration - A good solution for you!
