The challenges of land development are unique and complex. SWCA helps land development clients and landowners seeking entitlements meet these challenges so that they can effectively and responsibly achieve project goals.

We provide environmental assistance for the development of master planned communities as well as urban, open space, commercial, resort, and recreational areas. SWCA assists federal and state agencies as well as development, mining, and transportation clients with services for land exchanges. For all projects, we provide creative, environmentally sound solutions that maintain and build project value and demonstrate environmental leadership.
