For our entire history we have helped clients work with the regulatory agencies to successfully acquire approvals for their projects. From these decades of experience and our reputation for applying sound science, we have earned credibility among the agencies, and can anticipate and address their concerns. To do so, we integrate with project planning teams to develop a permitting strategy that considers the proposed project improvements, construction methods, potential permitting avenues, costs, and timelines. We often collaborate with project engineers to redesign plans to minimize impacts on biological resources and thereby advance the permitting process.
Our services include assembling permit applications, facilitating permit processing, and preparing the technical studies commonly required to support permits. Some of this supporting information is developed through impact assessments conducted for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) or National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Other studies may include:
Our permitted projects have varied widely, from small infrastructure improvements involving a few hundred square feet of agency jurisdiction, to highway improvement projects that extend for dozens of miles, to large-scale restoration projects involving thousands of acres. Whatever the project type or size, we can expertly navigate the permitting process to support project delivery.
