About us

Zebra Ecology is part of the Zebra Group, based in Worcester and working nationally on a diverse array of projects. These include large scale housing sites, strategic land, large scale master planning, commercial developments, independent schools, student accommodation, leisure development and bespoke private homes.

We have our own in-house team of Architects, Landscape Architects, Layout Designers, Technicians and Land + Development specialists and Ecology sits comfortably alongside all these disciplines, providing our clients with a 'one contact' service.

Zebra was established for a single purpose - to provide clients with a completely integrated approach to the appreciation and resolution of environmental issues associated with development proposals.  We pride ourselves on high-quality, well thought out and considered schemes right from the start of the design process to make sure developments are the best they can be.

The dazzle is a close-knit and supportive team, and we would love to you have you on board!
