I worked with Chris and Liz of On Pointe on a 500-mile interstate pipeline in Texas. They performed the biological field surveys and assisted me with finalizing the pipeline route to minimize environmental impacts and potential construction issues. I found them to be highly reliable, informative, and communicative, and I would be glad to find myself on another project with them in the future.
