Environmental Assessment 

Environmental assessments assist with the critical analysis of potential environmental liabilities associated with real property acquisition and ownership, as well as business operations and management. We provide:

  • Phase I & II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) & Remediation
  • Corrective Actions & Risk Assessments 
  • Underground Storage Tanks (UST) 
  • National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Assessments & Categorized Exclusions 
  • Vapor Encroachment/Mitigation Surveys

Environmental Compliance

The rapid growth of environmental regulatory requirements creates many challenges for large multi-national corporations and single-facility operations alike. These requirements address water, air, hazardous wastes, and the release and reporting of hazardous substances. We provide:  

  • Facility Audits 
  • Spill Prevention Control & Countermeasure Plans (SPCCP) 
  • Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SPPP) 


Remediation & Clean-Up 

In soil and groundwater remediation actions, environmental consultants are called upon to monitor groundwater, compare remedial alternatives and draft an action plan. The key to effective site remediation lies in the quality of site characterization that identifies the vertical and lateral extent of soil contamination and the degree and extent of groundwater impact. The characterization data guides the design of feasibility testing and the contaminant migration analysis necessary for choosing appropriate remedial actions. We provide:  

  • Remedial Investigations 
  • Remedial Action Plans & Alternatives 
  • Hazardous Materials Surveys
  • Hazardous Materials Management Plans
  • Hazard Mitigation/Waste Recovery
  • System Design, Permitting & Installation 


Historically, asbestos fibers were widely incorporated into building projects due to special industrial and construction qualities of the material. After asbestos became known for posing adverse health factors in humans, asbestos-containing materials became used more sparingly but are still utilized in construction. These include federal and state regulations outlining requirements for exposure minimization, personnel and occupant protection, removal techniques, and disposal. We provide: 

  • Asbestos Building Inspections 
  • Asbestos Operation & Maintenance Plans 
  • Asbestos Abatement Design & Oversight  
  • Asbestos Awareness Training 
  • Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) 


Lead-Based Paint  

Most structures built before 1960 contain heavily-leaded paint, and some structures built as recently as 1978 may also contain lead paint. Many different regulations affect the removal of lead based paint. These include federal and state regulations outlining requirements for exposure minimization, personnel and occupant protection, removal techniques, and disposal. We provide: 

  • Paint Inspections 
  • Lead Based Paint Detection 
  • Risk Assessment & Control Plans

Industrial Hygiene 

Conditions such as inadequate ventilation, heating and cooling issues, mold, vehicle and/or chemical odors, water leaks and noise can cause issues and trigger employee concerns and complaints. The key to effectively evaluating potential health and safety concerns for a building’s occupants begins with accurate and thorough monitoring. We provide: 

  • Biological & Chemical Monitoring 
  • Physical Assessments 
  • Noise & Vibration Monitoring 
  • Lead Hazard Control Plans
  • Construction Site Health & Safety


  • OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Training 
  • First Aid, CPR & Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training 
  • MSHA Training
  • 2 Hour Asbestos Awareness Training
