The Environmental Impact Assessment is offered as a specific environmental expertise, which represents an efficient tool for the environmental protection strategy. The current valid legislative regulation in this process is the Act No. 100/2001 Coll. We observe the ten essential principles of EIA: prevention, democracy, variety, systematic approach, complexity, differentiation, intelligibility, verifiability, responsibility, and objectiveness. We develop the documentation and expertises in accordance with the Act.

Documentation consists of five steps:

  • Evaluation of complexity of the given objective
  • Data collection
  • Characteristics for evaluation of impacts on each components of the environment
  • Evaluation and selection of options
  • Final summary

The assessment evaluates:

  • Documentation integrity
  • Public opinion and views of concerned entities
  • Comprehensiveness of all positive and negative impacts of buildings, activities or technologies on the environment, including their mutual interactions
  • Methods used for evaluation and integrity of input data
  • Proposal of technical design on elimination or abatement of pollution or damage to the environment
  • Solution options
  • Proposal on measures and conditions for elimination or mitigation of negative impacts of building activities or technology, and use of buildings on the environment

Our approach is also to involve items of the EU legislation (Council Directive No. 85/337 EEC, No. 97/11 EC). We ultimately respect the public participation in the EIA process in compliance with the Aarhus Convention.
