Power Delivery – Environmental

Power Delivery – Environmental Overview

Power delivery investments have reached record levels as utilities respond to critical needs affecting lines and substations. Minimizing conflicts with the human and natural environments while managing schedule and cost is key to success of these efforts. GAI’s team understands that this effort starts at project conception and continues through post-construction. We have been working with the power industry for more than 30 years to provide siting, licensing, and permitting solutions to help projects succeed.

GAI has the in-house capability to provide complete environmental services for power delivery facilities, creating a comprehensive and integrated approach to every project. This includes siting and licensing, civil design, environmental studies and permitting, cultural resources, and construction and post-construction services.

GAI’s comprehensive services and reputation for meeting schedules and budgets has helped make us a leading siting and permitting consulting firm. We bring that reputation, commitment, and client-first focus to every environmental service we provide. Learn more about our Electric Power Siting and Permitting Services.
