Consulting Geosciences & Site Remediation
Environmental Standards geosciences and site remediation professionals provide specialty services not offered by most environmental consulting firms. Our client value lies in the ability of our knowledgeable staff to use emerging technologies to develop practical solutions to environmental business problems.
Environmental risk associated with real estate transaction, and Brownfields redevelopments is a concern to all parties involved with a transaction. Present and historical environmental practices and conditions must be identified so that a realistic picture of the total environmental liability is known prior to the transaction. We conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments, calculation of liabilities and remedial costs, real estate portfolio analysis, and project management and oversight for existing properties as well as Brownfields redevelopment programs. Anchored in sound science and years of practical experience, we evaluate each facility and property considering its historical, current, and future use. If the property assessment identifies potential environmental liabilities, we can proceed to investigate site conditions more thoroughly by conducting multi-media sampling and identify specific issues.
Environmental Standards has no specific remedial technology licenses or patents; therefore, we are free to choose the correct remedial technology for our clients based on site-specific needs and circumstances. Our remedial design team carefully assesses site-specific circumstances and crafts remediation systems that operate efficiently, bringing projects to closure as soon as possible.
Whether the method is soil vapor extraction, chemical treatment, or bioremediation, our remediation experts can design a soil remedy that is tailored to the business needs of our clients. Cost, speed, client operational concerns, and the regulatory climate are all considered in selecting and implementing the correct soil
Third-Party Field Auditing
A non-biased review of field procedures conducted during site investigation and sampling programs helps identify quality deficiencies prior to generating environmental data for risk-management decisions. Field auditing of sample collection procedures is effective in implementing real-time corrective action measures, and as such, is an integral step in ensuring quality data in a project life cycle.
Our auditors have experience in identifying data collection, sample procurement, record-keeping, and health & safety issues before they become problematic. Results of our audits can be used to evaluate contractor performance and for future contract awards.
Remedial System Optimization
Often, responsible parties continue to design or operate remedial systems based on outdated information or antiquated scientific concepts. A timely and current understanding of site conditions and the latest thinking on remedial technologies can often lead to the redesign or adjustment of remedial systems such that the systems can be operated more economically with an improved remedial performance. Environmental Standards gathers and organizes the needed information to approach regulatory agencies for meaningful discussion and negotiation for improving remedial system performance.
