Our Services

EPD was created to assist clients through the complex regulatory and interdisciplinary process required to bring projects to fruition in the most thoughtful manner. It takes a team of experts in each discipline that can navigate the entire process of what is required before you start. Planning, entitlement, and environmental expertise should not be independent processes. Each of these disciplines affect the outcome of a project and the cost to completion. Planning sets the stage for the entitlement and it is influenced by environmental conditions and requirements.

EPD’s success is in its holistic approach in understanding that planning, entitlement and environmental services cannot be thought of in separate silos. EPD works with its private and public sector clients to meet the overall objectives of each project, while supporting the economic, environmental sustainability and long-term objectives of all stakeholders.
