Natural Resources + Permitting

All services

Straughan has 25+ years of experience streamlining the approval process for everything from billion-dollar infrastructure programs to small maintenance projects. We believe scientifically defensible assessments of natural resources with proper planning for regulatory requirements results in successful projects that also improve the human and natural environment.

Infrastructure and development projects can present environmental permitting challenges that drive costs and delay schedules. We provide insight into environmental compliance to reduce risk and improve efficiency. Our staff have specialized expertise in wetlands, forestry, endangered species, water quality, fisheries, and natural resource management plans, and we are committed to efficient and creative solutions for any project.
