CLA Engineers

Wetlands/Soils/Ecological Services




Natural resources regulated by Local, State and Federal agencies pose constraints for nearly every development project. CLA has extensive experience in identifying these constraints and effectively managing the project design and permitting processes in tandem to achieve the desired results in a timely manner. By using existing, digital environmental data, CLA can effectively pre-screen sites for suitability. CLA also maintains knowledge of environmental regulations and ongoing liaison with regulatory agencies so that we can provide clients with up front information on permitting requirements and time frames. CLA’s areas of expertise include the broad range of ecological and environmental disciplines needed for successful completion of our clients’ projects.
