Welcome to Independence

Our office combines a Midwestern work ethic and friendliness with the power of a national firm to provide a full range of natural resource and environmental permitting services.

We take care of what matters most to us—our community, our home—through projects that include natural resource and endangered species surveys; environmental assessments; and impact statements for roadways, wind farms, pipelines, and power plants; and private, commercial, and municipal developments.

Our team of biologists, soil scientists, and species experts has developed strong working relationships with, and the respect of, resource agencies throughout the Midwest. We enjoy sharing our wealth of local, regional and national experience and helping our clients through the environmental permitting process.
