With External stakeholders

Public resistance to pipeline, utility, infrastucture, defense, and healthcare projects is costly for all parties. Specializing in defense and healthcare projects, and Native American/First Nation consultation processes, we work with key stakeholders to increase trust and collaboration so that mutually-beneficial, sustainable solutions can be crafted.
