Assessment & Permitting

Using science to meet regulations

Need to meet regulatory requirements? We work with you to prepare permit applications and environmental assessments that obtain the information you need to design with community in mind. We also provide permitting strategy, environmental assessment and application preparation, and technical support for projects that require municipal, provincial/state, and federal environmental approvals and licenses.

Our in-house experts across the globe collect and analyze atmospheric, aquatic, terrestrial, and socioeconomic data to support assessment and permitting efforts to help keep your project moving forward. Calling on their excellent working relationships with regulatory agencies, those experts streamline your permitting efforts and help you engage in effective approaches to regulatory approvals.

Solid, defensible applications need to be supported by data. We collect and interpret the data so you can deliver a project that serves your needs and safeguards the communities you work in.

Design with community in mind

We’re committed to a partnership with our clients and the communities they serve. Protecting the livelihoods and safety of those communities means meeting all regulatory requirements through assessments and permitting—but environmental permitting doesn’t need to be a roadblock in your project’s development. By identifying constraints, goals, regulatory agency needs, and stakeholder issues early, we can help you address problems before they knock a project off course and deliver a project in harmony with local needs.
We help you navigate complex regulatory environments to move your projects forward.

Building a strategy for successful permit application and environmental assessment is a team effort
We have the local experts for your project's regulatory needs.
Our goal is to carry out our work with zero harm to people and the environment
