Sycamore Environmental works as a liaison between clients and regulatory agencies in the project approval process. Our environmental compliance program also includes conducting preconstruction plant and wildlife surveys and construction monitoring.
We work closely with project engineers and engineering/design firms to develop existing conditions analyses, evaluate project effects, and to develop avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures. Our existing relationships, lines of communications and professional approach help to successfully deliver projects to construction.
