EnviroVector has been successful at obtaining approved environmental permits allowing the construction of subdivisions of over one-thousand dwelling units.  Our policy is to optimize usable land maximizing buildable units through innovative environmental solutions.  Expert staff, accurate delineations, exceptional knowledge, and Agency trust are our tools of success.  In Tacoma, EnviroVector permitted 1,100 units that involved relocating wetlands and enhancing a salmon stream.  In Port Orchard, EnviroVector prepared a wetland mitigation plan allowing a subdivision on over 100 acres of land.  EnviroVector specializes in satisfying wetland, wildlife, stream, habitat, shoreline, aquatic, or marine environmental regulatory requirements on even the toughest projects.

Many of our project are smaller subdivisions and planned communities that involve wetland or wildlife regulatory requirements.  Innovative solutions in applying mitigation strategy allow EnviroVector to succeed where other firms fail.  Whether your project is a boundary line adjustment or a 9-lot subdivision, EnviroVector will apply a wide range of tools to ensure success through the environmental permitting process.  EnviroVector permitted a 9-lot short subdivision in Bellevue Washington that involved innovative wetland mitigation on a property historically encumbered by wetlands and buffers.


EnviroVector provides exclusive services to a number of home builders and home building companies.  Whether there are shorelines, wetlands, wildlife, or other environmental issues, innovative solutions will optimize usable land on a property allowing for additional building area, yard, landscaping, out-buildings, or other amenities.  EnviroVector negotiated with Thurston County for the construction of a single-family home in Rochester Washington where the Mazama pocket gopher was identified in the vicinity.  EnviroVector prepared a wetland mitigation plan that allowed the construction of a single-family home on a lot entirely encumbered by wetlands and buffers near Littlerock Road in Thurston County. Environmental permits were obtained for the construction of a single-family home in Issaquah Washington that was almost completely surrounded by wetlands, streams, and steep slopes.


Shopping, malls, strip malls, retail outlets, office buildings, or private businesses can face crippling environmental restrictions that require our exceptional skills and experience to resolve these challenges.   By optimizing land use through innovative environmental solutions, EnviroVector resolves complex environmental challenges, optimizing usable land and maximizing land use potential.  Wetlands and wildlife were evaluated for the construction of Cabelas outdoor supplier in Lacey Washington.


From fish processing plants, fuel gasification plants, timber processing facilities, hatchery complexes, marijuana processing plants, to large manufacturing plants, EnviroVector applies innovative environmental solutions to resolve environmental challenges, optimizing land use potential.  EnviroVector obtained environmental permits for a fuel gasification plant and other buildings at a timber processing facility in Shelton Washington.  Permitting involved shoreline, habitat, and water quality issues that required innovative solutions to resolve complex issues.  EnviroVector performed an extensive Mazama pocket gopher live capture study on 100 acres in the City of Tacoma to reclaim an abandoned BNSF railroad yard.


EnviroVector manages permit applications, including SEPA, Shorelines Substantial Development, Corps permits, local permits, and endangered species requirements for the construction of docks, floats, and boat launches.  Curtis Wambach, M.S., Principal and Senior Biologist, worked for many years as a permit consultant for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) in the construction of boat launches, docks, floats, fish weirs, and other water dependent uses throughout Washington State.  EnviroVector permitted a commercial dock and fueling facility at a fish processing plant in a marine boat basin at Westport Washington.  EnviroVector also permitted the fish processing plant.  We also permitted many private docks throughout the Puget Sound area.  Mussel rafts were permitted in Oakland Bay near Shelton Washington.


Curtis Wambach, M.S. Principal and Senior Biologist, permitted the construction and maintenance of fish hatcheries as permit consultant for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).  He permitted pollution abatement ponds throughout Washington state including one at the Hoodsport Hatchery in Hoodsport Washington.   Shellfish floats were permitted by EnviroVector in Oakland Bay near Shelton Washington.  A fish processing plant was permitted by EnviroVector in Westport Washington.  A Mazama pocket gopher study was performed for the construction of a hatchery building to service a private facility near Rochester Washington.


Curtis Wambach, M.S., Principal and Senior Biologist, managed permits for a $360 million transition line project conveying power from the largest solar plant in the world located in California to a substation in Nevada.  The permitting budget was $10 million and involved the creation of a desert tortoise mitigation bank, cactus management plan, a raven management plan, CEQA, NEPA, desert big-horned sheep management plan, and coordination with agencies, engineers, and Brightsource Energy.
