NTI President Lew Lautin expects to double that figure next year.
Lautin, a builder and developer since 1966, became involved in ecosystem restoration when he joined the Florida Wetlands Bank in 1993.The Wetlands Bank, where Lautin is a partner, was a national pioneer in taking wetlands mitigation from planning and permitting through complete transfer of credits, site restoration and maintenance.
...
"We saw that many clients who had purchased credits from us were also doing on-site mitigation," Lautin said.
He formed Native Technologies to provide those needed on-site restoration services, as well as to help developers find more competitive, cost-effective ways of engineering their projects.
NTI's start-up costs for operations and salaries were about $50,000.The company has three full-time employees; a dozen others work on a contract basis, many of whom also work for the Florida Wetlands Bank.Lautin says employee knowledge is one thing that makes NTI competitive."We have a well-rounded staff of professionals with a significant level of expertise that we've acquired over the past seven years, and competitive pricing," he said.
...
Lautin says the work he did as a builder and developer transferred easily to what Florida Wetlands Bank and NTI do now."Mitigation is very similar," he said.

Banking On Wetlands
www.perc.org, 15 April 2006 [cached]
In Broward County, Florida, rapid development and shrinking wetlands presented an unusual business opportunity for Lew Lautin, chief executive officer of Florida Wetlandsbank.By transforming a weed-choked, garbage-strewn tract near Pembroke Pines into a pristine wetland, he created a product that was in high demand by local developers.
Wetland regulations require developers to compensate for wetlands that they destroy.Lautin leaped to fill the void.He leased the 450-acre site from the city, cleaned it, lowered the ground level to allow water flow, and added more than a million new trees and plants.
By now the pickerel weed, sawgrass, and bulrushes are flourishing; oak, slash pine, and bald cypress are taking hold; and wildlife has returned.The Florida Audubon Society has counted 108 varieties of birds on the property.
...
The lack of suitable land in Broward County for additional wetland development has forced Lautin to move elsewhere, but he sees no end to the demand as long as mitigation is required.Near Naples, Florida, he is transforming 2,775 acres into new wetlands.
