Environmental remediation is complex. Every environmentally impacted site is different, so your site remediation approach must uniquely address your legacy site issues or recent incidents.
We bring clarity and certainty by developing solutions that address your site’s unique conditions and objectives. Our focus is on providing remediation investigation, characterization, design, execution and construction that is cohesive and comprehensive.
Our Progressive Remediation Strategies (PROGRESS) approach applies next-generation thinking to the remediation of complex contaminated sites. PROGRESS addresses the inherent uncertainties of remediation — including unseen subsurface conditions — by emphasizing the site geologic model, which quantifies the processes driving remediation performance to inform design decisions for focused, cost-effective remedies that deliver predictable results.
We can provide decommissioning and demolition services, remediate a manufactured gas plant (MGP) site, or mitigate vapor intrusions. We provide environmental emergency response services and can evaluate your options for transferring risk away from your company.
Our team also has extensive experience assisting power generation utilities with the environmental aspects of coal combustion residuals (CCR) management, including hydrogeologic site investigations, groundwater modeling, monitoring well installation, groundwater sampling and statistical analysis. Our experience also includes comprehensive services for the study, permitting, design and construction of utility waste landfills, including facility life evaluations, disposal alternatives, ash utilization and ash handling.
We begin with the end in mind for seamless regulatory risk management, cost savings and expedited site closure. Your objectives guide us in evaluating risk assessment and mitigation, regulatory negotiations and passive, low-cost remedies as preferred alternatives to costly remedial actions.
Cost unknowns for remediation projects are a frequent challenge. We implement probabilistic cost forecasting to yield a more complete picture of the estimated cost range, as well as evaluate the likelihood of exceeding a particular cost point. Driven by a life-cycle diagram that defines the tasks critical for a path to closure, a Monte Carlo simulation compiles a statistical evaluation of the likely total costs and the assumptions that have the greatest cost impact. We apply this robust tool to help clarify the uncertainty inherent in environmental remediation, boosting your budget confidence.
Our focused remediation solutions leverage the unique characteristics of your site, aiming to reduce uncertainty, deliver lower risk and cost, and support precise, predictable results. Key components of our process include:
Our consulting, environmental engineering and geology, environmental construction, and remediation services are fully integrated and can be implemented through your preferred project delivery method: engineer-procure-construct (EPC)/design-build; design-bid-build; owner’s engineer; construction management; or program management.
Throughout the course of your site remediation project, we deliver ongoing services that address your site’s particular needs, including:
