Environmental permitting

Our solid experience in environmental permitting helps our clients resolve issues that could delay the approval process as well as helps to ensure the long-term success of their environmental projects.

Atkins offers a number of supplemental services in-house to facilitate efficient, successful environmental projects. These are provided by a team of qualified ecological scientists experienced in all phases of wetland and upland environmental analyses.

Over the years, we have developed an excellent rapport with regulatory agency staff having worked directly with the agencies on many projects. As such, we can help our clients to quickly resolve permitting problems that could delay approvals.
