We have been particularly active in Social Impact Assessments (SIA) for residential housing, resort, public works, and transportation projects.
Work includes SIAs for the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill, the Kaua‘i Landfill, the Kawaihae Bypass Road, the Route 190 Realignment, Pā‘ia Bypass Road, Waimea Bypass Road, West O‘ahu Campus, and numerous residential housing and resort development projects.
Expanding our expertise in social and economic assessments to the fields of social marketing, SMS has recently completed projects for the Hawai‘i State Department of Transportation’s social marketing project, the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s County Tourism Plans, and the State’s long-range planning effort, Hawai‘i 2050.
SMS combines experience in socioeconomic impact and market studies. We have conducted market research for private sector clients, and combined market and economic impact studies for public documents, notably Environmental Impact Statement sections.
SMS Hawai'i executives have testified concerning our work before the State Land Use Commission and other agencies and community groups.
