Site Evaluation and Permitting, Pre-Construction Development, and Construction Support
Developing and constructing wind projects is extremely time and resource sensitive. The aggressive schedules and continuously evolving requirements of the wind industry require a team that is responsive, flexible, and reliable. Westwood takes pride in being all of those things. Our professionals support our clients with national registrations, licenses, and experience and serve them from office locations throughout the U.S.
Westwood supports the development of utility-scale wind projects across the nation. We provide a broad range of professional services to project developers, contractors, and utilities.
