Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering

Obtaining regulatory and stakeholder approval for any project requires a thorough consideration of environmental design objectives. In addition to avoiding and mitigating impacts to the natural environment, these objectives must increasingly address opportunities for mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts. These impacts can occur at any point during the project lifecycle: from construction through decommissioning.

We work with clients to help ensure that environmental opportunities are maximized and liabilities are cost-effectively avoided or minimized. Our planning services help clients clearly define project needs, incorporate effective environmental design, as well as obtain regulatory and stakeholder approvals to proceed.

In later project stages, we provide a comprehensive suite of environmental management services to ensure systems, plans and monitoring are developed and implemented to meet project environmental objectives.

All of our services are supported by specialists in planning, natural sciences (biological and geo-environmental), social sciences, risk assessment, and specialized engineering disciplines.
