Our Approach to Construction Projects

SummitWest Environmental realizes the need to work together with construction firms and agencies to ensure a project is done correctly and on time. You can rest assured that working with us will ensure projects remain in compliance with NEPA, CEQA, and other biological project requirements and constraints. We provide pre-construction surveys to ensure no surprises when work starts, as well as on-going biological monitoring when required.

We are also experienced in designing and hosting “Environmental Awareness Training” for construction crews, based on the project specific mitigation measures and agency requirements. This helps ensure that the project remains compliant, even when management is not onsite.
