As part of the London Gateway project, which is situated on the North bank of the Thames Estuary, Thomson Habitats turned 30 hectares of open land into habitat for newts and reptiles.
Developers are turning the area into a large deep sea port which will be, when completed at the end of 2013, Europe's largest logistics park. The habitat that we created there forms part of the largest ecological project in Europe.
The habitat was intended for the newts and reptiles which we helped our sister company, Thomson Ecology, move from the areas of the site which were under development.
