There are many things that have shaped who VG Consulting are today. Our supportive culture to collaborate with clients and deliver services of benefit has always been at our core.
Initially evolving from the Planning & Environmental Department of our partner organisation VG Energy, it's true we have grown, maybe even transformed to offer a more diverse range of services and support. What has fundamentally been our focus from conception has been to partner with clients to ensure their project starts and lives with the benefit of proper planning processes.
Having successfully consented hundreds of applications for renewable energy across the UK since 2008, we were continually approached by our clients to take on other types of development and assessment. Naturally, we were delighted to have the opportunity to expand our portfolio and allow our staff to grow their existing skillsets, as well as growing our team within further skills.
Knowledge, training and company divisional set up, means today we offer a full-cycle planning support service to many industries, as well as individuals.
From our initial association with VG Energy, it's true to say that VG Consulting have vast knowledge, experience and successful renewable energy projects under our belt. Whilst these achievements allowed us to grow, it was also evident that many clients wanted more. Planning and environmental support for cultural heritage projects, ecology, acoustics, roadway and traffic, whilst of course, continuing to support the energy sector.
The natural development in our journey was to allow VG Consulting to give clients what they wanted and quite simply, this gave birth to VG Consulting being a stand alone provider. We continue to have a very successful relationship with the energy sector and VG Energy who quite simply put us on our course, but today, clients working with VG Consulting know what we do and have access to turnkey planning and environmental services.
As we grow and continue to bring innovative thinking and industry support, our clients are embracing our future. We're proud of where we have come from but also excited about where we are going.
