Environmental Planning & Permitting

Private and public entities must be responsive to evolving environmental regulations and permitting requirements.


That’s just part of doing business. At Olsson, we take a proactive approach—helping our clients comply with complicated regulatory processes and providing them with the efficient permitting strategies that are supported by the latest and best methods of documentation.

Simply knowing the newest regulations and technology isn’t enough. Our team strives to provide innovative, win-win-win solutions that are good for our clients, communities, and the environment.

Our Environmental Resources and Compliance team combines the strength of experts in biology, ecology, geology, hydrogeology, meteorology, natural resources, and environmental engineering to solve past environmental problems and prevent future ones.
