Environmental Permits and Documentation
RESPEC understands that the environmental permitting and documentation process is complex. Our transportation team offers decades of experience with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation process, environmental permitting, and coordinating the studies required for the environmental process. Completing these environmental documents is a critical component of most projects.
Our environmental engineers provide value by becoming an extension of our client’s team. Our approach incorporates the Federal Highway Administration’s NEPA requirements early in the planning process. As a result, recommendations and solutions are designed to avoid potential impacts to cultural and natural environments from when a project begins.
RESPEC is well-versed in coordinating with federal, state, and local agencies for environmental permits. We streamline the process by anticipating the permits that a project will need, preparing the applications, and negotiating permit stipulations or mitigations with the jurisdictional agencies. This approach noticeably reduces unexpected delays to help meet the project’s schedule.
We excel at developing erosion, sediment, and pollution prevention strategies and mitigation plans. Our expertise results in our clients being better equipped for responding to stakeholder concerns about the environment by demonstrating clear, concise steps that are being taken to protect natural resources.
When our clients partner with RESPEC, they can expect to navigate the review and permitting process quickly and cost-effectively. Our transportation team mitigates the surprises so that our clients can move forward with confidence.
RESPEC utilizes a variety of cutting edge technologies to enhance project delivery and add value to the final product. These tools can give our clients a more holistic view of their project than ever before possible, when compared to traditional methodologies.
