A detailed description of exactly what we do…

We improve the environment by first investigating to understand the current conditions of the land, the types and locations of contaminants, and their potential for migration and adverse impact.  We investigate by researching past industrial uses of the property, by collecting and analyzing soil and groundwater samples, and by reviewing the geology of the site.  We develop data summary tables and draw maps and cross-sections.  Next we look at planned future use of the property to understand the needs of the owner, developer, and future occupants.  We then perform risk assessments, develop remediation strategies, analyze costs and help our client and the regulatory agencies select the best cleanup option for the site.  On many projects, we perform the remediation work providing excavation, demolition, contaminant removal and disposal, and recycling.
