Project Overview

From 1995 through 2008 ATM served as the primary environmental consultant for Sun International/Kerzner Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island, Bahamas. During that period, ATM developed a total of 13 Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and Environmental Assessments (EA) covering all phases of the resort development and expansion. The EIAs included the primary phases of development of the resort, a proposed golf course on nearby Athol Island, and an EIA specifically focused on the Atlantis Dolphin Experience. Work included extensive assessment of baseline conditions within the phases of development, determination of environmental impacts, and development of mitigation and Environmental Management Plans (EMP) that outlined construction and operational Best Management Practices to reduce potential impacts of the proposed project on adjacent waters and other resources. Through the various phases of the resort development, our staff worked closely with the Bahamas Environment, Science, and Technology (BEST) Commission as well as other government agencies to secure approvals and associated development and construction permits.
