Natural resources consulting

We envision an end state for your project that is most impactful to your business and least impactful to the environment. 

Natural resources assessment and management for energy, real estate development, mining, industrial and manufacturing, and other industries is no easy feat. From changing regulatory requirements, to public opposition and fluctuations in available financing, there’s no shortage of obstacles that can delay or even derail your projects. Not to mention, in industries rife with competition and a shortage of site space, being first to market is top of mind. 

Haley & Aldrich’s natural resources consulting team knows that successful projects require an understanding of the lifecycle of a project — from conceptualization to design and permitting, through construction and operation. Our scientists, consultants, and field staff start each natural resources engagement by working with your team to envision your desired end state and the critical paths to navigate along the way. Because we leverage and adapt Lean thinking to see a complete value stream, we are particularly well-suited to co-create your vision. We know how a completed project should look and use that knowledge to plan ahead, determine what resources may be impacted, and ensure the overall process is efficient and effective. 

We understand that for many of our clients, being first to market matters. That’s why we carefully plan the evaluation and permitting of natural resources during your project’s development. And when we work with our clients during project conception, sometimes we can avoid resource impacts entirely, leading to the need for fewer permits — saving time, money, and complexity — and ultimately getting your project realized, faster.
