What We Do

At Big Pine Consultants LLC, we specialize in providing comprehensive environmental and archaeological consulting services. Our goal is to help our clients navigate complex regulatory environments and achieve their project goals sustainably and efficiently. Here’s a closer look at what we do:

Environmental Consulting Services

Our environmental consulting services are designed to address the diverse needs of our clients, to maintain compliance with relevant regulations while promoting sustainable practices. Our services include:

Wetland and Stream Delineation: We conduct thorough delineations of streams and wetlands within the project study area and assess the regulatory implications for your project.

Threatened and Endangered Species: We consult with federal and state agencies to identify potential impacts to rare, threatened or endangered (RTE) species or their critical habitat. After we have identified RTE species, we work with our client to identify potential alternatives to avoid and minimize impacts, thereby lowering the project costs and streamlining the permitting process.

Environmental Permitting and Planning: We review findings of various environmental studies and agency consultations to identify and review design alternatives to minimize the regulatory burdens for your project. After we complete the studies and design improvements, we prepare the required permit applications and work through the regulatory process with our clients.

Regulatory Compliance: We help clients monitor during construction to maintain compliance with permit and other regulatory requirements.

Archaeological Consulting Services

Our archaeological consulting services are tailored to help clients manage and protect cultural resources effectively while keeping their projects on schedule. Our offerings include:

Cultural Resource Management (CRM): We conduct comprehensive surveys and evaluations to identify and assess archaeological sites, ensuring that cultural resources are preserved and managed responsibly.

Section 106 Compliance: We guide clients through the Section 106 process, helping them meet the requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) and coordinating with relevant agencies and stakeholders.

Mitigation Planning: We develop and implement mitigation plans to address potential impacts on archaeological sites, ensuring that projects proceed with minimal disruption to cultural resources.

Project Management

At Big Pine Consultants LLC, we understand that successful projects require effective management from start to finish. Our project management services include:

Planning and Coordination: We work closely with clients to plan and coordinate all aspects of their projects targeting objectives to be met on time and within budget.

* Big Pine Consultants LLC is not currently licensed to provide survey services and does not currently employ a licensed surveyor. Although Big Pine can incorporate the use of ground controls into workflows to improve accuracy, the drone services provided by Big Pine Consultants LLC are not “survey grade” and cannot be relied upon for legal, engineering, or surveying.
