At Sunrise, we value the opportunity to help our clients navigate environmental requirements for their new projects and ongoing operations. Our team is able to interpret complex regulatory requirements and develop sensible and cost-effective compliance solutions. Our ability to communicate with stakeholders and government agencies is an important resource available within Sunrise Engineering. We identify and evaluate potential adverse environmental impacts that may result from a proposed action. If impacts are expected, we develop mitigation measures to limit or prevent such impacts. We care about the environment and the effect our work has on our communities. We continuously seek to find sustainable solutions to help reduce our clients’ environmental footprint.
Sunrise Engineering’s venture into environmental engineering began over two decades ago when we started offering environmental assessments internally to support projects requiring environmental compliance for funding. Since then, the company has diligently provided environmental assessments, permitting services, and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation. Throughout this journey, Dao Yang has been at the forefront, spearheading the environmental efforts with expertise and dedication.
“Dao Yang has been a company fixture in the environmental realm for over 20 years. He has provided environmental support to hundreds of Sunrise projects,” says Derek Anderson, PE, manager of Sunrise environmental services.
Sunrise Engineering’s environmental efforts excel in a wide range of services. Our core offerings include:
Environmental Site Assessments: Thorough evaluations of project sites to identify potential environmental risks and liabilities, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.
NEPA Documentation: Preparation of Environmental Assessments (EA) and Categorical Exclusions (CatEx) for various projects, facilitating compliance with NEPA regulations.
Environmental Permitting: Assisting clients in obtaining permits and navigating complex regulatory frameworks, ensuring adherence to environmental guidelines.
While Sunrise primarily provides environmental services as internal support to our projects, our expertise and contributions extend beyond the company. By collaborating with municipal entities and consultants, Sunrise Engineering’s environmental team is a valuable resource for clients seeking expert environmental engineering services.
One of the significant challenges faced by environmental engineers at Sunrise is coordinating with federal agencies for project approvals. However, through years of experience and dedicated efforts, the team has established fruitful relationships with these agencies. This collaboration has fostered a deep understanding of regulatory requirements, resulting in the preparation of high-quality documents that require fewer comments to finalize.
Overcoming challenges and fostering collaborations, Sunrise Engineering continues to meet and exceed client expectations in their quest to ensure environmental compliance. With a team dedicated to sustainability and environmental stewardship, Sunrise Engineering is poised to create a greener and more sustainable future for generations to come.
