How We Work


At GEMS, we understand there is always more than one perspective on a project – the owner, the consultant, the engineer, the contractor, the agencies – and, as the Environmental Specialist on your projects, GEMS aligns all the perspectives to keep things moving.

GEMS works to remove environmental roadblocks for our clients. We are the leaders in responsiveness and practical innovation to remove project roadblocks. We work in-between the world of construction and development and the environmental agencies that govern them.

Talk to the agencies to understand their side of the story and what they’re dealing with.

- Help them say yes.

GEMS can help you with every stage of your project, from planning what will be needed during Pre-Construction, monitoring, reporting and incident response during-construction and documenting Post-Construction conditions.

We know first-hand, that sometimes navigating the environmental aspects of a project can be complicated.

  • Permitting & Approvals
  • Regulations, Policies & Guidelines
  • Monitoring, Compliance & Reporting
  • Timing Windows
  • Incident Response

If you would like to talk to the real deal, an Environmental Specialist who knows what you`re dealing with, make GEMS the only call you need for environmental management. Take the complicated out of the already complex environmental management process.

When environmental regulatory requirements go unmet, projects are stalled.

- avoid project delays and unbudgeted costs by calling GEMS
