Federal State and Local Permits are Integral to Each Project
We can untangle the web of ongoing rule changes and approvals
An integral part of any waterfront development is the procurement of Local, State and Federal permits required for almost every project. The permitting process has become increasingly complex over the past few years due to the listing by the State and Federal agencies of several animal and fish species as threatened or endangered. Waterfront Construction has remained at the forefront in understanding these changes. We are committed to serving the needs of our customers while designing innovative projects that help preserve the wildlife we all cherish. Waterfront Construction has a full-time staff to ensure that your project is done right, with all of the appropriate permits and approvals. The strength of our Permit Department comes from over 60 years of combined experience in the permitting process, with an understanding of surveying, biology, engineering and construction.
As part of a project application there may be need for consultation between soils or structural engineers, fisheries biologists, architects or landscape architects to develop the project desired by a client. Our staff can provide coordination between these professionals and work with permitting agency personnel and your consultants during project review to help facilitate the permit process.
Procedures for permitting can be arduous, complex and confusing. Most clients choose to use the trained staff at Waterfront to procure all of the permits for their project. These may include approvals from municipalities, counties, Fish and Wildlife, Ecology, Army Corps of Engineers, National Marine Fisheries, Natural Resources and others.
Ongoing policy changes at the Local, State and Federal levels continue to bring new challenges. Waterfront Construction is committed to working through these difficulties and serving the needs of our customers. Please give us a call and let us show you how we can work for you.
