Applying ecological and regulatory expertise.

Managing natural resources is second nature for us

Our team leaves no stone unturned. We employ design, permitting, and mitigation strategies to maximize land use and minimize threats to regional species, watersheds, and ecosystems.

From site selection through post-construction compliance, our ecologists and biologists work alongside engineers and contractors to maximize land use and minimize threats to the environment, while quickly alerting you to potential environmental disturbances and their impact on project feasibility, scope, and schedule. We provide a wide range of services, including:

  • Critical issues analysis/fatal flaw reviews
  • Permit matrixes
  • Desktop reviews
  • Wetland delineations
  • Vegetation sampling and surveys
  • Wildlife habitat assessments listed species surveys
  • Avian and bat surveys
  • Cultural resource surveys

Whether you need community input to make a more informed design decision or are developing a contentious project, we design and deliver custom stakeholder engagement plans for your projects or programs. With our communications and stakeholder engagement services, we do our research on the front end to ensure potential opportunities and risks are identified, discussed, and planned for in advance. Our comprehensive approach to stakeholder engagement removes uncertainty, enhances stakeholder relationships, and ultimately, drives a positive environment for project success. Our communications and stakeholder engagement services include:

  • Community and stakeholder research and risk analysis
  • Stakeholder engagement planning and management
  • Communication and engagement execution

We bring a national team of knowledgeable ecologists, biologists, planners, archaeologists, geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental engineers, and regulatory specialists together to offer a diverse range of services and technical expertise to get your project across the finish line. The Atwell Environmental Team can support your project permitting needs, including agency coordination and consultation, permit application preparation, public hearing support and testimony, permit negotiations, and permit compliance. We regularly work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, state departments of nature resources/environmental protection, State Historic Preservation Offices, state public service commissions/siting boards, as well as county and township boards/planning commissions with conditional use/special use applications and site plans. We also offer environmental construction oversight and compliance monitoring to help you successfully comply with local, state, and federal regulations that affect your project success. Whether your interests involve real estate and land development, power and energy, or oil and gas markets, we have the tools and environmental expertise to get the job done.
