Hamer Environmental has been conducting biological assessments and environmental studies throughout the Hawaiian Islands since 2006. Hamer Environmental frequently works with federal and state regulatory agencies, counties, public utilities and private companies to assess project impacts. We have recognized the uniqueness of the Hawaiian Islands and have customized our services to assess potential project impacts to the islands' native wildlife and botanical species. We tailor our projects to address Hawaii's unique environmental concerns. Our projects in Hawaii have ranged from cell tower, meteorological and radio tower, and wind power developments to assessing impacts of existing transmission lines and highway construction to inland nesting seabirds. We oversee all parts of the development planning process from initial environmental screenings and biological assessment studies to permitting. We also provide the preparation of NEPA documents and expert formal and informal consultations with state and federal agencies. Our project managers ensure that a quality product is delivered on time and within budgets. Because we are a certified small business, our low overhead results in highly competitive rates while providing personalized services.
