Environmental Studies

Environmental Studies

In addition to following common federal environmental permitting processes, private development projects often require more specialized environmental studies that address local concerns. These studies range from comprehensive state-mandated environmental analyses to tailored investigations for air quality, noise, hazardous materials, cultural resources, environmental justice, urban design, shadows, wind, greenhouse gas emissions, water quality and construction impact mitigation. In many cases, these studies require application of agency-approved computer models designed to assess effects on a specific resource of concern.

We provide clients a full complement of climatologists, meteorologists, noise and acoustic specialists, cultural resource specialists and natural resource specialists with the proven experience to address any project eventuality, including staff with the technical know-how to apply the most sophisticated computer-based assessment techniques mandated by environmental review agencies. We also offer a comprehensive knowledge of available facility adaptation and resiliency measures to help new and existing developments prepare for possible increases in flooding, storm surge and other risks anticipated from climate change.
