VCS has over 19 years of experience successfully completing projects for clients. We are proud to have an extensive repeat client list. We strive to help our clients identify attainable goals and objectives in light of the current regulatory climate; protect their interests as we obtain permits and approvals for their projects; and complete the project, whether it is certification of an environmental document, issuance of a regulatory permit, or sign-off on a mitigation requirement, as expeditiously and efficiently as possible.

The VCS Team brings a diverse range of qualifications with decades of experience to each of our projects. We are also strategists—always looking for the most effective and efficient path to reach our client's goals. We understand how pieces of a project fit together and how impacts to one piece can have a ripple effect. This experience uniquely qualifies us to assist our clients in completing projects on time, within budget and, most importantly, without surprises. We have experience managing major projects from conception through design and environmental clearance and ultimately construction.

We have extensive experience working with public agencies and private firms to assist them in meeting project goals. Our approach is one of advocacy and we assist our clients in identifying the best strategies while trouble shooting to eliminate risk and liability.

VCS is a California S Corporation and holds DBE, SBE, WBE, Micro, and VSBE Certifications. For more information on our qualifications and certifications, please see read about our services or contact us.

Harvest Land Company
"VCS helped us extend our permits and interpret the planting plan to allow changes that were acceptable to the resource agencies, yet practical for the site. VCS also modified the planting palette to be consistent with hydrological opportunities and constraints. VCS has truly been the leader in guiding us to a successful resolution of our environmental permits."
