Planning and Permitting
Pangea takes a solution-oriented approach to routing, planning, and permitting to facilitate construction by strategizing and coordinating with engineers, construction management, and regulatory agencies. We coordinate with federal and state agencies to develop permit conditions and mitigation measures.
Pangea engages with engineers, construction management, construction contractors, and design teams to provide environmental guidance prior to construction to ensure projects are buildable while providing protection for biological, aquatic, stormwater, cultural, and paleontological resources.
Pangea 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. 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 provides professional, highly experienced environmental inspectors and monitors to safeguard natural resources while maintaining environmental compliance during construction. 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.

Pangea Qualified SWPPP Practitioners (QSPs) provide on-site monitoring and reporting of construction activities as they relate to Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs). QSPs work to coordinate with constituent project teams to ensure SWPPP compliance and make any necessary corrective recommendations.
