BGE Services: Environmental Sciences

As environmental concerns grow and regulations change, developing the built environment involves risk. Fortunately, environmental science professionals can help manage that risk. BGE’s engineers and environmental scientists provide private and public clients alike with the guidance necessary to develop and maintain communities while respecting nature and complying with local, state, and federal regulations.

From planning, engineering, and permitting through construction management, we help our clients see their projects through to completion. And we are experts in monitoring and maintaining conditions to keep them in compliance.
