SWPPP (Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans)
With new regulations at the State and local levels, storm water mitigation and pollution prevention is a major consideration for new construction projects.  Increased levels of testing, lab analysis and reporting are required with steep financial penalties for non-compliance.  One aspect of the new regulations is the requirement for SWPPP's to be prepared only by certified Qualified SWPPP Developers (QSD's).  Implementation of the SWPPP must be carried out by a Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP).  These require training and passing a certification exam.  Our staff possesses such certifications and is prepared to help you understand your obligations as a developer, prepare the SWPPP and assist in monitoring the implementation of the plan.

LEED and Low Impact Development
More and more projects are seeking LEED certification that demands certain approaches in design and construction.  From an engineering perspective we can assist with such considerations as site selection, site development, stormwater quantity and quality, heat island effect, recycled content and regional material selection.  Using Low Impact Development (LID) design approaches we can assist in earning valuable points to meet your LEED certification goals.
