General Services


Transcon Environmental, Inc. (Transcon) has over two decades of history serving clients from project planning to reclamation. We partner with utilities and other stakeholders to solve problems the industry faces today and in the future, especially as climate and energy demands change. We share our clients’ values of completing projects within budget and on time while staying compliant with all federal, state, and local regulations and holding the highest safety standards for employees and contractors.

Our motto, Understand and Serve, ensures our clients’ needs are known, and that Transcon’s work—from contract management to project staffing—is founded in helping our clients achieve their goals and missions.


Founded in 1999, Transcon’s earliest projects were planning and permitting utility lines hundreds of miles long. Supporting and serving utilities has remained our core service for over 20 years. We have since expanded into multiple different industries, such as energy, local and federal government, Tribal, mining, permitting, and water. Our staff’s collective experience negates any learning curve in knowing what is necessary on these projects. We can seamlessly step in to help with siting and routing; planning and design; permitting strategies; resource surveys and studies; compliance (National Environmental Policy Act [NEPA], State Environmental Quality Acts, Clean Water Act [CWA], Endangered Species Act [ESA], National Historic Preservation Act [NHPA]); mitigation planning and analysis; construction inspection and monitoring; and reclamation planning and reporting. Clients have sought us out to develop or improve permit application packages, plans of development or project descriptions, alternative analyses, resource reports, NEPA documents, and mitigation plans. Our range of services allows us to support clients in any phase of their project’s process.

Transcon is headquartered in the Southwest, with offices throughout the Pacific, Great Basin, Midwest, and East Coast regions, and staff working remotely across the country. We continue to grow, offering services to clients nationwide, and we have staff with field experience in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming, among others.

Part of Transcon’s business model is to strategically hire and place staff covering a broad territory, offering cost savings to clients by decreasing mobilization and per diem expenses. We have offices, managers, and staff dispersed across the U.S. for quick deployment to project sites. This mobility is one example of how Transcon adapts to utility and industry needs and changes. Similarly, we are learning and ready to support utilities navigate new wildfire risks and ecological changes, legal and regulatory ambiguity, and the increasing need and transparency of safety practices with direct working relationships in the Beltway of Washington DC to states and local offices.

Our quality of work and applicability of experience is demonstrated by our high percentage of repeat clients and the volume of blanket purchase/master services-style contracts. Over 90 percent of Transcon’s clients have awarded us multiple contracts, and we have managed over 30 on-call-type contracts.
