One of the most common oversights in development is the functional use of natural elements to provide restorative experiences for people. Preserving naturally occurring ecosystems in urban areas requires a delicate interdisciplinary mindset in planning. EDS is committed to maintain and restore natural systems in urban areas to compliment community design. We are dedicated to providing suitable strategies that mitigate the impact of urban development on nature, while allowing people to experience that natural environment.
EDS has completed numerous environmental planning projects, such as constructed wetlands, environmental impact assessments, habitat protection plans, urban forest management plans, erosion and sediment control plans, and stream and riparian restoration. Recognizing the interdisciplinary needs of complex environmental planning projects, EDS has partnered with numerous industry partners to bring the most suitable team of practitioners to each project.
