Environmental consultants in California
The roots of Panorama took hold in 1983 when Laurie McClenahan Hietter founded MHA Environmental Consulting, Inc.  RMT, Inc., acquired MHA in 2007 to expedite growth of the west coast operations and to expand the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), renewable energy, and regulatory permitting capabilities of the company. The successful merger resulted in a strengthened west coast presence for RMT and facilitated work on California wind and solar projects. In 2011, RMT narrowed its focus to engineering and construction of renewable energy projects and divested its environmental consulting practice. Laurie Hietter and Tania Treis moved the San Mateo office to San Francisco and rebranded the company as Panorama Environmental, Inc.
