Protecting the Environment
Environmental Engineering studies the effects of natural and human activities on the environment. Principles of Engineering, Geology, Biology, and Chemistry are used to develop solutions to Environmental problems.
GEAR helps clients analyze how their proposed construction projects will affect the environment.
Our knowledge of local conditions and regulations, as well as our experience with a broad range of industry types, allows us to understand all aspects of the technical arguments and develop an effective representation of our client’s interests.
Phase I ASTM Environmental Site Assessments
This assessment identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities and allows the buyer or lender to make an informed decision as to the potential environmental risk associated with the purchase of the property.
We conduct threatened and endangered species evaluations in accordance to requirements for most state and federally funded and/or permitted projects. If specific habitat or species are observed, we will perform a more detailed survey during a specific time of the year that agrees with the species’ migration and life cycle patterns.
Storage Tank Closure & Assessment
Client Mergers & Acquisitions
Upon discontinuance of use of a storage tank, the owner must empty the tank and either remove it or seal it. The area around the storage tank must be restored in a manner that prevents any future release. If contamination is present the site must be cleaned up in accordance with the proper corrective action procedures.
We help our clients to develop a growth strategy based on their goals, approaching a due diligence-oriented integration to provide our clients with the confidence and support they need to achieve their objectives.
