Where the land meets water, we find the most critical component of the transport of goods, services, and people―ports and harbors.
We offer a long history of providing environmental consulting services to ports and harbor clients, making us adept at the potential concerns around the operational, regulatory, and economic impacts of their maintenance, growth, and infrastructure improvement projects. Ports and harbor projects require a diverse array of stakeholders, often including multiple federal permitting agencies, local jurisdictions, tribes, environmental advocacy groups, and the general public. Our team is adept at coordinating with these stakeholders to ensure efficient and cost-effective approaches to environmental products and processes.
Our experience is directly applicable to the issues frequently encountered on port projects. These issues include managing large-scale capital improvement projects at seaport facilities with respect to long-term liabilities, existing and future land use, stakeholder concerns, public perception, environmental concerns, and regulatory compliance. Our track record for providing high-quality environmental review and permitting documentation for container terminal development, cruise terminals, marinas, deep water ports, and freight mobility allows us to address many aspects of port upland and in-water maintenance and repair, development, expansion, and master planning.
Our team has worked extensively with the Ports of Seattle, Tacoma, Northwest Seaport Alliance, Portland, Los Angeles, Oakland, Redwood City, San Diego, and Stockton. We have developed strong regulatory permitting protocol for NEPA, CEQA, and SEPA ; assisted in attracting new tenants through strategic proactive environmental review strategies; and helped lead impactful and meaningful public outreach efforts.
