Maslen's were drawn in to this work from a background of project planning and implementation. Our skills were developed from on-the-ground project delivery of landscape and environmental projects, supplemented and supported by sound scientific and technical understanding of the environment.. We have a track record in successful delivery for Environment Agency and public sector agencies, and links with the EU network and North Sea area. We have a strong track record and the ability to shape, bring form to and simplify complex ideas, opportunities and desires into a coherent Project Plan.
