We undertake Environmental Site Assessments to determine the presence and extent of potential environmental hazards and contaminants for commercial, industrial, and residential properties. In many sectors, site assessments are highly important, for a variety of reasons.

In real estate purchases, an environmental site assessment can protect buyers and limit liability by identifying environmental risks before the transaction occurs. For Land Development, sites are assessed for the purpose of urban housing and as part of the DA process councils need to be sure a site is safe for human habitation. If not, then what Remedial Action needs to be taken, thus leading to a Remedial Action Plan (RAP). Our expertise is sought after by clients and government.
