Our Approach

We approach our projects knowing the economic and time impacts that regulations can have on a project.  Our goal is to minimize these impacts with our in-depth knowledge of the local codes, requirements and agencies.

Our Story

3dfx was founded in 2006 by Aaron Souza, a local Tahoe resident and Planning graduate from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.  The original business scope of 3dfx was creating photo realistic simulations for Tahoe development projects.  The business expanded to encompass a wider range of planning services focusing on the Scenic Quality requirements of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency codes.

Today the 3dfx primary service area includes the Tahoe basin as well as expanded areas of Northern California working closely with Tehama Environmental Solutions, Inc. on environmental restoration projects including CEQA/NEPA and GIS work.
