Planning and Permitting

Preliminary Site Evaluations:

EMS can perform a comprehensive site evaluation to provide you with a professional assessment of development issues that need to be addressed. The information we obtain during this time is critical to fully understanding your site and allows us to better anticipate the upcoming steps to your project’s success. During your site evaluation, a certified professional will evaluate your property and building sites with an eye towards wetlands, geohazards, stormwater, drainage, zoning issues, and other environmental considerations. Extensive research and field work includes soil examination and profiling, review of existing Lidar topographic maps, plot maps, aerial photographs, wetland inventories, regulatory considerations and more. 

Planning & Permitting

Obtaining all the necessary environmental & design approvals can present daunting challenges to even the most veteran developers or land owners. Federal, state, regional & local agencies can all have a direct impact on your project or activity. The best laid plans have faced delays because of unforeseen or little known requirements that can stop a project or even make it impossible to turn back. One of the greatest sources of cost over-runs is a failure to plan and coordinate a project. Don’t try to go it alone!
