The main factor in the increase of biodiversity in the area is the provision of suitable greenery wherever it is possible. The secondary factor is then the provision of a spectrum of artificial or natural hollows that may serve as shelters, or as nesting and breeding places.
In collaboration with prominent Czech zoologists, botanists, and other specialists, we came up with a unique biodiversity plan for each building, which included suggestion for specific measures concerning nesting and sheltering of various animal species, as well as suggestions for change in the structure of greenery in the building and its surroundings whose objective was to provide animals with food, watering places, insect hotels, beetle houses, etc.
Each of this studies reflected specifics of the corresponding building and its surroundings (e.g. proximity of wildlife corridors). At the same time, the studies followed the strategic plans of both regional and global environmental protection formulated by the offices of civil service of the Czech Republic (or, alternatively Slovakia).
It is also worth mentioning, that 5 out of 7 of the abovementioned studies were provided in English.
