Site Assessment & Remediation

Take the guesswork out of preparing your project site for new development.

All new projects begin at the ground level, and many developments are proposed on sites with a history of past industrial use. Sound simple? It’s not. It’s what lies beneath a property that matters, and Ausenco’s Site Assessment and Remediation (SAR) team will take the guess work out of your property management and development plans.

Our site assessment and remediation professionals investigate and manage environmental site assessments and preliminary site assessments using a phased approach, identifying and assessing contamination in a progressive manner based on the level of information required. This approach enables a comprehensive and a systematic collection of data to determine the environmental status of a site while keeping assessment and management costs to a minimum. Our innovative approaches will reduce cost and risk to your project.

Our diverse team includes environmental scientists, engineers, and technical specialists with expertise in geology, water quality, hydrogeology, weather, and climate, greenhouse gas emissions, light, and acoustics. We also employ some of Canada’s most experienced scientists who specialize in identifying and minimizing human health and ecological risk. In fact, our SAR team at Ausenco is proud to have over 250 years of combined environmental site assessment experience and eight members on the Ministry of Environment’s Roster of Contaminated Sites Approved Professionals.

Our SAR teams have worked on some great projects across Canada. For example, we conduct site investigations for the federal government (PWGSC) across Canada. In Ontario, we are providing site investigation and remediation support to Hydro One. In Alberta, our site assessment and remediation services are at work in service stations and other industrial properties. In BC, we do site assessments on several provincial road and infrastructure projects, such as the Lower Mainland’s South Fraser Perimeter Road Project, the Johnson Street Bridge Project in Victoria, and BC Hydro.
