We coordinate with federal and state agencies to develop permit conditions and mitigation measures that are environmentally sound.
Pangea Biological engages and collaborates with engineers, construction management, construction contractors, and design teams when the project is in the conceptual stage and each phase of engineering design to provide environmental guidance and regulatory strategy prior to construction to ensure projects are buildable while providing protection for biological, aquatic, stormwater, and other environmental resources.
Pangea Biological leverages its considerable construction and field experience to provide both general and project-specific environmental training to client management teams, construction personnel, and environmental staff. Our team is highly experienced in designing, developing, facilitating and implementing environmental training programs within the U.S. These training sessions are conducted in and out of the field—including conference keynotes—and are designed to foster greater environmental compliance and understanding.
Pangea Biological provides professional highly experienced environmental inspectors, environmental monitors, and biological monitors to safeguard natural resources while guiding our clients to maintain environmental compliance during construction and post-construction phases. Pangea is skilled at communicating environmental requirements to the construction teams and informing them of any project variances that may be required as a result of the environmental requirements.
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan
Pangea Biological Qualified SWPPP Practitioners (QSPs) provide on-site inspection and monitoring, and reporting of construction activities as they relate to Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs).
