Environmental services are inherently multidisciplinary. A diversity of professional perspectives in environmental analysis is valuable. Most often, driven by project location, context, characteristics, resource sensitivities, and level of controversy, the focus needs to encompass multiple study elements. In such instances, professionals with a range of technical expertise conduct research, collect and analyze data, and prepare special studies, respond to controversy, and/or support consideration of project approval. The Ascent team offers the broad spectrum of technical fields needed to support the environmental decision-making and permitting process. We work collaboratively with our clients and stakeholders to understand their goals, challenges, and opportunities and to deliver innovative and sustainable outcomes.
