Consultancy Services


BCCSi offers each client a bespoke solution based on their individual needs or their client’s requirements. Our bird control consultancy services are used by a broad range of clients and individual property owners but our services are particularly suited to Architects and Surveyors, the Construction Industry, Facilities Management and those who have responsibility for the operation of a commercial or industrial site. We also have extensive experience of working on Listed Buildings where specialist knowledge is essential when recommending bird control deterrents.

BCCSi’s key objective is to provide each client with an expert assessment of their problem and to offer a cost-effective and sustainable bird control solution. Due to our independent status, all advice and recommendations are based solely on the Client’s specific needs and are always in the Client’s best interests.

Before we offer any prospective client bird control consultancy services we will first determine whether or not there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Where new build and renovation projects are concerned it is often assumed that because the building or site has the potential to offer roosting and/or breeding opportunities, the building must be protected. This is not always the case. For example, when a building or site is located in an area of low bird activity the likelihood of bird-related problems arising is extremely low.

Before any steps are taken to commit resources to bird control deterrents, or to a comprehensive pigeon or gull control system, it is critically important to assess bird activity on the site itself and the area around the site. An extensive bird control system installed on a large commercial or industrial site can cost upwards of £100K when using industry standard controls such as bird netting, bird wire and anti-roosting spikes. It is therefore important not to assume that the building or site concerned will inevitably need protection.

BCCSi’s most frequently offered service is a site assessment to determine the extent to which a site is affected by bird-related problems. The site assessment will be followed by an area-wide survey to identify which species of birds are active in the area around the site and to measure the extent of this activity. The area-wide survey will also assess the extent to which neighbouring buildings and sites are experiencing problems with pest species of birds and if they are, how those problems are being dealt with. Surveys will be carried out during the daytime to assess feeding and perching activity and an evening survey will be undertaken to assess overnight roosting and breeding activity. This service will provide an accurate picture of current bird activity on and around the site and will allow the Architect or Client to make an educated decision as to which, if any, bird controls are required and in which areas they need to be installed.

Most projects would involve the following stages:


A prospective Client makes initial contact with BCCSi

  • The Consultant will discuss all aspects of the project or ongoing bird-related problem
  • If necessary, the Consultant will request further information (eg. photographs and documentation) in order to gain a better understanding of the project or of the problem

The Consultant researches the information provided

  • The Consultant will study photographs and any documentation provided by the prospective Client
  • Further email or telephone exchanges may be required to determine if the prospective Client would benefit from engaging BCCSi
  • The Consultant outlines the most appropriate services that BCCSi can offer: these may include a site assessment, area-wide survey and/or design team meeting
  • At this stage a fee proposal will normally be requested if there is mutual agreement to proceed

BCCSI emails a fee proposal to the prospective client

  • The fee proposal will detail the scope and schedule of works recommended by the Consultant

The fee proposal is accepted and BCCSi is engaged

  • Further discussions take place with the Client to finalise dates and meeting schedules and also to identify any supporting documentation that may be of benefit to the Consultant
  • In the case of new build or renovation projects, the Consultant will request a set of detailed drawings to include external elevations, roof detail and proposed landscaping works

The Consultant undertakes desk research prior to site assessment and survey

  • Drawings and any supporting documentation will be reviewed in detail
  • Further discussion with the Client may be necessary during the process of desk research
  • A detailed assessment of the site and the area around the site will be made using Google Maps to determine the boundaries and scope of the survey
  • A risk assessment of buildings, structures or sites within the survey area will be undertaken to measure their potential impact on the Client’s site. Where necessary, appointments will be made to visit these sites as part of the area-wide survey

The Consultant travels to site to undertake site assessment and area-wide survey

  • The Consultant will normally undertake an evening survey on the first day to assess the extent of overnight roosting and breeding activity on and around the site
  • The on-site assessment will normally be the first opportunity for the Consultant and the Client (or Client’s representative) to meet and discuss the project in more detail
  • Following the site assessment the Consultant will undertake a wider survey to assess bird activity in areas around the site
  • If necessary, a second evening survey may need to be undertaken to further assess overnight roosting and breeding activity

A Design Team meeting is held to discuss all aspects of the survey and provide recommendations to the Client

  • Attendees may include the Architect, Main Contractor and the Client
  • The Consultant will present his findings and confirm to what extent there is a problem with birds on and around the site
  • The Consultant will make recommendations for a sustainable bird control strategy
  • Every attempt will be made to identify methods that design out bird-related problems
  • Conventional pest control products such as anti-roosting spikes, bird netting or bird wire systems will always be considered as a last resort
  • A strategy will be agreed with the Client and the Consultant will then work closely with the Architect, Client and the Client’s Main Contractor throughout the project

On-going Support

  • At the Client’s request the Consultant may revisit the site during the build or refurbishment process to assess the agreed schedule of works
  • The Consultant will provide remote support throughout the course of project
  • At the Client’s request the Consultant will undertake a final walkthrough, prior to handover, to ensure that all the agreed controls are in situ and functional
