Is that project complicated, challenging, complex, unusual, even frighening? Bring it on! Deirdre loves organizing and facilitating major land use and development projects—and her extensive experience and technical expertise ensure projects are completed in compliance and on time. While she originally wanted to be a Forest Ranger, Deirdre’s love of geography led instead to urban planning. She now has in-depth knowledge of processing entitlements for residential, industrial, healthcare and commercial developments. And she’s well versed in reviewing and interpreting city/county codes, governmental regulations and environmental requirements. Her experience includes doing due diligence, preparing fee and land use feasibility studies, USGBC certification programs, and development alternatives, for projects that have required approvals for manufacturing, machinery, high pile storage, refrigeration, solar installations, and health clearances for food products, as well as approvals from the Federal Aviation Administration. During construction Deirdre also ensures condition compliance and implementing mitigation measures, along with permits and agency clearances.
