Padre’s Goleta office is managed by two of the Padre principals, Simon Poulter and Alan Emslie. Due to Principals respective backgrounds, the Goleta office focuses mainly on coastal and offshore projects. In this capacity, Padre principals work closely with the client and the regulatory agencies to develop and implement a permitting strategy that results in the effective assessment and approval of large coastal infrastructure projects. We provide a spectrum of services including project description development, feasibility evaluation, permitting, environmental support and construction monitoring. The Goleta office also supports the implementation of local Santa Barbara projects including watershed management program and water and wastewater improvement projects.
