SVE Associates: Engineering, Planning, Landscape Architecture, Surveying

Holiday Inn Express in Brattleboro, VT


SVE has a superlative record of assisting clients with local, state and federal permit acquisition. The firm utilizes a collaborative approach to the permitting process by working closely with agencies to resolve potential issues well before the final design stage. This strategy allows a free exchange of ideas which results in sometime innovative but more typically cost-effective designs that conform to both the client’s need and the regulatory agency’s mission.
