At Holland Engineering, we are committed to providing cost-effective solutions to environmental challenges. We understand the complex science and regulatory structure behind environmental issues—and have the resources to identify and engineer the right solutions for you.

Our team of seasoned professionals offers comprehensive environmental compliance support to clients in the energy, civil infrastructure, and municipal sectors. From threatened and endangered species to stream restoration, from pipeline permitting to GIS services, we have the experience and expertise to keep your project in compliance and on schedule.

Our environmental professionals understand that compliance with regulatory agencies is a key component in avoiding costly construction delays. Our professionals can manage the environmental surveys for all projects and are seasoned in coordinating environmental field survey crews on projects with tight schedules, limited site access and limited survey windows due to weather constraints or resource life cycles.

Our Environmental team is highly familiar with all relevant environmental authorities and experienced in all permitting processes. We are equipped to meet all your regulatory needs for water, wastewater, and natural resources.

Mussel Surveys

HEI maintains both a state and federal mussel survey permit which allows us to survey federally listed mussel species. These surveys are often required for any in-stream construction and completing these surveys one year prior can prevent any delays. Every project we have surveyed has been approved for construction.
