Since 1981, SWCA has contributed to the success of thousands of construction projects, including energy generation, transportation infrastructure, and public works facilities.
Working side-by-side with project developers, planners, and builders, we employ a practical and thorough approach to regulatory requirements, permit developments, and environmental compliance management. Whatever the type of construction, our team can scope and integrate environmental requirements to keep construction efficient, compliant, and on schedule.
Earliest Possible Involvement
At SWCA, we recognize that early involvement can be a fundamental differentiator. Our creative culture encourages collaboration early in the project to address environmental considerations and requirements and eliminate surprises down the road.
Project Planning and Definition
During project feasibility and constraints analyses when early concept siting, layouts, and design elements are considered, our specialists work with development teams to review various construction aspects, such as access, possible sensitive receptors, water and dust management, seasonal timing, and temporary work spaces.
Addressing these – and alternatives that will minimize permitting and schedule delays – can have positive impacts that will help facilitate agency conversations and permits. Early project reviews can also affect early design phases and allow for optimal selection of designers and construction materials.
Constructability review is a key component of contemporary approaches to project design and construction, such as progressive design/build. SWCA actively participates in this approach on projects across the country.
Permitting, Design, and Pre-construction Planning
As projects become more defined and progress through the approval and permitting processes, SWCA is there to help manage everything. Our teams work on environmental compliance, water and air quality management, mitigation requirements, agency communications, and reporting systems and procedures. SWCA responds quickly and proactively with the appropriate scope and staff.
Construction and Restoration
Finally, as your project transitions to construction, SWCA can provide a variety of services specifically tailored to your unique project. Our team of technical specialists, field technicians, and technical service developers will ensure high-quality environmental services that are carried out with integrity and clear communications.
