SWCA Environmental Consultants announced it has acquired Sycamore Environmental Consultants, an environmental consulting services, compliance, and permitting firm based in Sacramento, Calif.
Sycamore provides environmental permitting support to public and private sectors and specializes in public infrastructure, transportation such as bridge and highway projects, linear features projects such as transmission lines and pipelines, renewable energy, telecommunications, and general and specific plan projects. The firm consists of a team of biologists and planners with diverse expertise including botany, wildlife biology, wetland delineation, restoration, arboriculture, planning, permitting, GPS data capture, CAD mapping, and GIS analysis.
This acquisition adds to SWCA’s presence in California, allowing the company to better serve clients throughout the West. It also deepens SWCA’s roster of technical and scientific experts, particularly CEQA/NEPA experts, planners, and biologists.
“Sycamore has been a leader in northern California since 1991, and we’re thrilled to welcome them to SWCA,” said SWCA CEO Joseph J. Fluder, III. “Their experience with infrastructure and transportation projects, as well as renewable energy and linear projects is well respected. We’re pleased to team up and bring our wide-ranging environmental expertise to more clients in this geographic market.”
“We are excited to become part of the SWCA team,” said Sycamore Environmental Vice President Jeffery Little. “SWCA’s resources in California and nationally allows our clients to access a wider scope of services and provides our staff with new professional development opportunities.”
