has conducted hundreds of Phase I & Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) of commercial, industrial, institutional and residential properties.
The work was undertaken on behalf of both private and public sector clients at locations throughout Ontario, Quebec and the Northwest Territories.
These assessments were of a qualitative (Phase I) and/or a quantitative (Phase II) nature.
In all cases, the assessments focused on the environmental condition of the real property (i.e. in terms of solid/hazardous waste management, fuel/chemical storage, soil/groundwater contamination, air emissions, underground storage tanks, asbestos, PCB, UFFI, etc., as applicable).
Some assignments also consisted of assessing the environmental risk posed by existing and/or historical operations to the environmental condition of the sites, surrounding properties and/or other sensitive receptors (i.e. ecological and human).
work with land development firms has included the hydrogeological assessment of wetland complexes.
One assignment consisted of assessing the soil and groundwater regimes of a meadow marsh that was moved to allow the continuation of a planned residential development.
