We provide end to end services that assist you in implementing land development projects with due consideration given to the natural environment, social, political, economic and governance factors.
IBD has a full understanding of infrastructure projects, having been involved in all aspects from design through construction and operations. Our design process includes gaining a thorough knowledge of our prospective client’s requirements, budgets and expected return on investments prior to proceeding with the planning.
Environmental Site Assessments
An environmental site assessment is a report prepared for the client that identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities.
The analysis often called an ESA, typically addresses both the underlying land as well as physical improvements to the property.
Environmental Impact Assessments
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process of evaluating the likely environmental impacts of a proposed project or development, taking into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural and human-health impacts, both beneficial and adverse.
Environmental Management Plans
The Environmental Management Plan (EMP) covers the design, construction, commissioning, and operation and maintenance phases of each project component.
The EMP identifies the key environmental issues across the project and provides strategies and plans for managing them effectively.
Coastal and Marine Engineering
Coastal engineering is the study of the processes ongoing at the shoreline and construction within the coastal zone.
The field involves aspects of nearshore oceanography, marine geology, and civil engineering, often directed at combating the erosion of coasts or providing navigational access.
Socioeconomic and Environmental Permitting and Planning
The process involves a pivotal role in regulating environmental impacts, as they prevent harmful projects from going forward and set limits on potential project damages to protected lands, endangered species, and local communities.
Archaeological impact assessment studies identify areas and or items of cultural or historical significance and a determination for preservation.
Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.
We provide a complete analysis of the site and environmental conditions, permitting requirement together with preliminary cost estimates on conceptual designs for your review prior to implementing our design processes.
Conducting an Environmental Impact Assessment or Statement (EIA / EIS)
It’s the process used to determine the appropriate contents of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
We create the draft EIA which presents, analyzes, and compares the potential environmental impacts for the proposed action and alternatives.
Once the impacts are determined, the regulatory agency may require a process of public consultation. If required, a consultation is conducted and incorporated into the final decisions by the regulatory agency, and a final EIA is submitted.

This outlines how the impacts will be managed during construction and implementation.
