Environmental Sciences & Permitting
Our Environmental Science & Permitting practice is focused on streamlining and managing the regulatory process for our clients throughout a project's life cycle. Through early, strategic planning, pro-active management of public and agency processes, and technical excellence, we lead project applicants through environmental compliance and permitting processes while minimizing the unpredictability and open-endedness that can delay schedules and increase costs.
We combine sound science with the ability to turn complex technical data into straightforward information for the public and decision-makers. By defining environmental issues in a factual, scientific context, we keep regulators and the public focused on substantive issues while providing our clients with reasonable and appropriate solutions. Our premier scientists work with our experts in project management, strategic communications and risk management to identify potential project challenges early and develop innovative and cost-effective ways to resolve these issues.
From project inception through construction and operation, our integrated teams provide a broad array of services, including planning studies; field surveys and modeling studies; NEPA and state environmental documents; permitting; and construction planning, monitoring and mitigation. We focus on navigating strategic pathways that result in environmentally sound projects that get built and provide a sustainable return on your investment.
