Permitting, Approvals and Compliance

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. Our team is connected with regulatory agencies and know what is needed when conducting assessments to ensure a smooth application process.
