What is a Visual Simulation?

Visual simulations help bring your projects to life before they even begin. These photorealistic images are rendered from specialized 3D modeling software to allow users to visualize proposed development or infrastructure projects. Visual simulations provide project managers with vital information such as the proposed project's impacts on nearby structures and amenities. Find out other benefits that visual simulations provide here.

What is Natural Resources Management?

Natural resources management refers to the ways in which people manage or use natural resources available to them as they rely on them for survival and development. Natural resources include water, air, land, minerals, forests, animals/livestock, fisheries, and wild flora and fauna, all of which must be taken into consideration for your proposed projects and developments. In the context of environmental planning, natural resources management considers the protection of environmental resources with community goals on the regional and local levels. Proposed projects are looked at through a holistic perspective including their environmental, social, and economic impacts on the surrounding area.

What are Carbon Offsets?

The concept of Carbon Offsets is a hot topic in both the public and private sectors. What exactly are they? Carbon offsetting is a strategy used to reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions by reducing emissions that occur elsewhere in your operations. Various forms of carbon offsets exist including carbon capture, tree planting, and more. Identify other tools to define carbon offsets here.
