Temple, a prominent environmental , planning, and sustainability consultancy in the UK, has recently become a Silver Partner in the Esri UK network. This strategic collaboration empowers Temple to leverage Esri’ s Geographic Information System (GIS) technology, merging it with their environmental expertise to pioneer innovativee software  solutions for their clients.

The UKHab and BNG Survey App is the first application to be launched, to help AEC (Architecture, Engineering, and Construction) organizations make decisions on development plans and meet the new biodiversity net gain (BNG) legislation, which came into force in January 2024. This demands that all new major construction projects deliver BNG of at least 110%.

Designed to simplify the processes involved in BNG assessments, the software streamlines the workflow from field data collection to in-office assessment and provides a real-time BNG score. The new app also enables the seamless use of existing UKHab surveys and conversion to BNG surveys.

This means many users can take advantage of their current ecological processes and comply with the new legislation faster and more cost-effectively.

The new partnership has allowed us to create a best-in-class solution to meet the increasing demand for BNG solutions and improve how users carry out biodiversity surveys,” explained Mark Skelton, CEO at Temple. “By combining our vast experience in ecology, environmental impact assessments and wider scientific understanding with established Esri tools, new digital workflows mean users can now manage a project’s impact on the landscape and comply with the new law in a highly accurate and efficient way.
