Environmental, Land & Permiting

Each project exists in a unique area with characteristics that define constraints that need to be considered during the project life cycle.  A thorough understanding and compilation of data resources is a critical step when evaluating project areas for future development.  Our team is highly experienced in performing the early stage “deep dive” desktop reconnaissance needed to screen for potential  environmental and cultural features in a project area.
