HR Green’s hallmarks are project efficiency, effective project management and outstanding communication. We can handle any project, from sites less than one acre to sites thousands of acres in size. From conceptual planning through final site design, we utilize the latest technology to prepare engineering reports, exhibits and contract documents. Necessary state, local and federal site work permits are obtained efficiently to help our clients avoid delays and stay on-schedule.
We work directly with our clients to gain a thorough understanding of a site before major financial investments are made in a project. Our process starts with a thorough site analysis effort, identifying all of the natural, manmade and political characteristics of a site. We examine the existing site in great detail and develop conceptual plans which respond positively to environmental and physical site conditions.
