Environmental Planning and Assessment Services
Our Environmental Planning and Assessment Team includes Environmental Planners, Biologists, Aquatic Resource specialists, Environmental Scientists and Engineers, and other professionals that allow us to address a wide range of environmental issues. We are proud to have brought this team together, as it gives us the internal expertise needed to respond to many complex and diverse matters, collectively known as 'Environmental'. From wind energy to fish and wildlife habitat, from vegetation assessments to watercourse realignments, we assess and advise on interactions between people and nature.
As important as it is to understand our natural environment, we also have expertise in the laws, regulations, and practices that have been created to protect the environment. We deal regularly with the Canadian and Ontario Environmental Assessment Acts, the federal Fisheries Act, The Ontario Planning Act, and other various regulations that are encountered by our clients. We prepare restoration plans where environment rules have been breached.
Our Environmental team is well integrated with Burnside's engineering services, and it is with great pleasure that we bring the Burnside values, practices, and reputation to a new dimension!
