Permitting

Permitting strategy and development

If you are building a new plant site or expanding/modifying an existing plant site, you want air permitting to be off the critical path and you don’t want the permit to create any compliance surprises.  Effective permitting strategies ensure your projects get started when planned with the least amount of red tape to slow you down in the future.  Our approach to permitting focuses on meeting your schedules and addresses the regulatory requirements.  If you are interested in enhancing your permitting strategies, our firm is a pioneer and leader in developing flexible permits that virtually eliminate permitting delays and minimize administrative costs.

Permit applications

A well-prepared permit application can be the difference between getting a permit quickly and lengthy delays.  We understand what the permitting agencies need to issue your permits and to ensure the permitting process goes smoothly.  We structure permit applications to provide agency reviewers with the information they need and in a format that fits the agency review process.

Types of permits
