Environmental services have a profound impact on the approval process for rawland and/or collocation sites where expansion is proposed. Whether identifying or assessing environmentally sensitive areas, potential threatened or endangered species, historically significant districts and structures, or Indian tribal areas, efficiently navigating the environmental permitting process can be challenging. Agency review times, additional submittal requests, and claims of significant environmental impact can cause scope creep and significantly delay approval times. Possessing the knowledge of environmental sensitivity in various geographic regions, considering how environmental services chronologically fit into the overall site approval progression, and understanding how to efficiently navigate submittal requirements for various environmental permits are a necessity to prevent significant delays and minimize cycle times.

At Delta Oaks Group, we utilize a thorough due diligence process and a geographic-based knowledge of historical environmental requirements to anticipate supporting documentation that will reduce environmental permit approval times. Utilizing our knowledge of the factors mentioned above, a site-specific scope and timeline is strategically developed for each project in order to minimize cycle times and costs. Throughout the approval process, consistent communication and verbal dialogue with both the approving agencies and our clients is the backbone of our approach. Complications regarding environmental approvals are to be expected regardless of the level of planning, but minimizing these complications and consistently communicating to resolve issues and convey timelines are a necessity of successful environmental approvals.
