We know that regulatory compliance doesn’t end with CEQA and NEPA. Other regulatory requirements such as permitting and mitigation compliance extend through both design and construction. AD works collaboratively with our clients through all phases of project delivery to implement solutions that can avoid or minimize impacts to the natural, social, and built environments. Our Agency Managers help owners navigate agency requirements and regulations, including the identification of requirements, developing budgets and schedules, utility company coordination, and monitoring each permit’s progress from beginning to end .

Our team’s many strengths include the ability and insight to develop effective strategies to expedite entitlement clearances, the knowledge of how to best present projects for gaining consensus on reasonable impact mitigation measures, and the experience to support projects with strategies that facilitate permitting and ensure compliance with all regulations, codes, and ordinances.
