Project Development & Environment Services Elevate Mobility & Connection

An equitable, safe and sustainable approach to transportation.

Roadway improvement projects don’t just affect drivers—they can impact entire communities. A Project Development and Environment (PD&E) study considers environmental, social, and economic factors when new transportation projects or improvements are planned. VHB’s context-sensitive approach to PD&E elevates mobility and community connections through integrated transportation engineering, planning, land development, and environmental services.

VHB PD&E teams are an integral part of transportation projects shaping communities across the East Coast, from stakeholder engagement to advancing high-speed rail to preserving natural resources for rural road improvements. Our firmwide team of more than 200 PD&E professionals includes urban planners, transportation planners and engineers, environmental scientists, biologists, real estate and development leaders, and public involvement specialists. The Southeast Region PD&E has specialized insight about the unique needs of Central Florida PD&E clients. Our success is attributed in part to the depth and breadth of the integrated planning and environmental services we offer under one roof.
