Environmental Impact Assessments – Approvals of Environmental Terms

Environmental Impact Assessments are a statutory human effort to preserve the quality of the environment and its impact on the construction of a technical project. Impacts may be direct or indirect, reversible or not, and may affect the natural and anthropogenic environment positively or negatively.

Our expert designers produce environmental impact studies for the licensing of projects and activities where all available alternatives are considered from the perspective of sustainable development so that environmental intervention can be done through a rational and objective process of choosing the best solution both for the needs of the local community, and the adaptation of the business.

This process includes one or more environmental impact studies depending on the stage of the project or activity, which are submitted for approval to the respective environmental authorities.
The EIAs describe the technical work, the current state of the environment, the environmental domains likely to be affected, the possible impacts, and proposed impact mitigation measures, as well as alternatives, proposals or restrictions, so that the project can be constructed and operate within the existing legal framework.

In summary, an EIA study includes the following steps:

  • ICM specifications
  • Submission of EIA Facility to the competent environmental authority,
  • Checking the completeness of the ICU Facility,
  • Public consultation
  • Opinion from services with special responsibilities (Ministry of Culture, Tourism)
  • Final Approval of Environmental Terms (AEPA) for the construction and operation of a project or activity.

Archeology Approvals

Change use of spaces
In buildings that have a lawful building permit, it is possible to change the use of the building or a part of it, from the use with which the building permit was issued to another use such as from a shop to a dwelling or vice versa. This change requires a new change of use license.
Typically, a change in the use of a building or part of a building is also accompanied by space configuration work.

The change of use process requires modification of the studies submitted in the original license:

  • defining the functions of the building
  • Building the building program
  • Preliminary architectural design and alternatives
  • Definitive architectural study
  • Application study
  • Construction supervision
