Galileo Project, LLC provides project management assistance and coordination (PMAC) to federal, state, and local agencies on environmental permitting, planning, and construction projects. These projects include renewable energy, transmission, pipelines, and planning efforts among others. We provide services primarily to government agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, National Park Service, and others. Unlike traditional environmental firms who focus on providing products, Galileo’s primary focus is assisting with the process. We are deeply service-oriented and, with our assistance, project teams have more time to focus on technical tasks, strategic thinking, problem solving, and decision making. Galileo’s multi-disciplinary activities provide a significant advantage in project development from inception through final construction.
