Environmental & Utility Permitting Expertise
Permitting and regulatory compliance have the potential to be a stumbling block for an otherwise smoothly executed project. WithersRavenel can help you navigate this complex process.
Our team of environmental consultants, planners, designers, and engineers anticipate the types of permits that will be required and, where appropriate, initiate the regulatory process as early as possible to minimize permitting impacts on design alternatives, schedule, and budget. Examples of our service offerings include:
- Utility Project Permitting. WithersRavenel has completed hundreds of water and sewer projects which require environmental and other permits. We have the experience to help our clients be certain that their project meets necessary state and federal permitting standards.
- 401/404 Permits. Jurisdictional streams and wetlands can provide hurdles to the development of your project. WithersRavenel has experience with these permits and can help clients navigate this process.
- NCDOT Encroachment Coordination & Permitting. The state Department of Transportation has their own standards that must be met when a project involves or encroaches on certain roadways. WithersRavenel has numerous former NCDOT employees and a bounty of experience tackling projects where approval of the state agency is needed.
WithersRavenel also performs regulatory compliance reviews to verify that all work meets the design and permit requirements, paving the way for a successful finished project.
