Environmental Planning

Environmental Planning at DB Engineering & Consulting

Safeguarding ecosystems sustainably and in harmony with land utilization claims

The increasing complexity of construction work requires the use of new methods and modern equipment that make conventional planning processes more efficient and also increase projects’ transparency. Using the In construction projects, land utilization claims must be reconciled with environmental protection and nature conservation in order to ensure the sustainable functioning of ecosystems. In the European Union (EU), major construction projects can no longer be approved without environmental planning, and integrating environmental impact designers at an early stage has proven to be very effective. For over ten years now, we have been working on issues relating to environmental planning, ecology and nature conservation. Our designers are deployed throughout Germany and design environmentally friendly and resource-saving solutions, particularly for railway-specific projects.

Railway installations as a habitat

Railroad installations, open spaces and track ballast as well as batter with ruderal and scrub vegetation provide many species of plants and animals with valuable retreats. Protective measures are particularly important when:

  • Upgrading, constructing and reactivating railroad lines
  • Modernizing stations and freight facilities
  • Maintaining and constructing engineering structures
  • Constructing and refurbishing depots and preparation for operations facilities
  • Constructing noise barriers
  • Freeing up and repurposing land used by the railroad
