Natural Resources/Regulatory Permitting

Michael Baker simplifies the environmental permitting process and is at the forefront in providing professional natural resources/regulatory permitting services. We work closely with our clients and state and federal regulatory agencies to provide creative solutions that lead to win-win agreements. This is done through a proactive approach that begins with early baseline/existing condition analysis, design of conceptual alternatives and clear and concise permitting, which leads to on-time project delivery.
