Environmental Engineering

Life depends on balance. Plants require a balance of sun and rain.  Our lives require a balance of work and family time.  Engineering and architecture projects, similarly, must strive to achieve a balance between current and future needs; between the need for economic progress and the need for resource management.

At OTHON, we appreciate that as environmental consultants, our goal is to identify solutions that balance the needs of all parties, whether it be the owner, public agencies, the community, or the end-user.  Relying on our extensive knowledge of environmental regulations, our experience working with agencies through the permitting process, and our track-record of building public consensus, we assist clients to move projects forward in a way that meets their needs while at the same respecting the needs of the community and environment.
