Permitting and Compliance

AKRF offers permitting support services for projects involving waterfront structure construction, shoreline modification, and dredging and filling in waterways.

AKRF’s environmental professionals are well-versed in addressing complex regulatory and permitting problems and in providing objective and creative strategies for obtaining the necessary approvals for waterfront construction projects.

Our expertise is strengthened by our long-standing relationships with city, state, and federal agencies, as well as our understanding of applicable permitting rules and regulations. Knowing the ins and outs of regulatory agencies and their procedures enables us to efficiently navigate the process, negotiate and design mitigation measures, and obtain the permits required to deliver our projects on-time and on-budget.

The scope of our services includes:

  • Preparation of federal, state, and municipal permit applications
  • Required technical studies
  • Agency negotiations
  • Coastal zone consistency reviews
  • Development of mitigation or habitat enhancement plans to meet permit requirements
