Environmental impact assessment & permitting

Infrastructure and building projects accomplish a variety of goals, which can include providing additional water supply capacity, relieving traffic congestion, or constructing a multiple-use development. No matter what the objective is, the project may have adverse impacts on other components of the natural or man-made environment.

Environmental Impact Assessments comprehensively identify and assess the impacts of a given project, and evaluate options to reduce those impacts. In this way, the benefits that accrue from the project’s implementation can be weighed against inevitable adverse impacts.
