COVID-19 update to all our clients

Hi everyone,

We’re are committed to the health and safety of our customers, our community, our employees and associates – and for this reason we will be restricting some of our site visits and field services until further notice.

Please call us on 250-202-0215 to discuss your requirements and we’ll let you know how we can help.

All of our staff and associates will be working from home.

Our Team

Whether you need a comprehensive study or help with a specific environmental concern – big or small – our team is available to discuss these with you and can help you achieve your goals using innovative ideas and technologies.

What we do

We offer a range of environmental services for local government, construction and trades, real estate, private individuals, local businesses, and the natural resource industry. Our commitment is to provide cost effective solutions and excellence in client care through our personalized and collaborative approach.

Our Location

Origo has its depot and office in Campbell River and has a seasonal office in Quatsino BC (North Island). We provide consulting services throughout Central/North Vancouver Island, Comox Valley, Tofino, Powell River, Quadra Island. We service those hard to-get-to remote locations that bigger firms can’t get to.

Developing a property?

A Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment is often required by investors as a due diligence measure in a real estate purchase or future development, especially if the property is close to a potential contaminated site. We also believe these are especially important for you – the buyer or developer – to protect against any later unforeseen environmental remediation work.

Buying or developing a property near a creek?

Our Environmental Care package will help you to make more informed decisions about the future development possibilities on a proposed real estate purchase, and can assist with any development permitting concerns. This service will be of interest if your proposed land purchase is adjacent to a marine or a freshwater habitat, or near other sensitive areas such as habitat for species-at-risk.

Cutting ground?

Before you excavate or drill, you should consider having the ground scanned with ground penetrating radar to identify any unmarked utilities or hazards such as utility lines, pipes or other underground infrastructures. The concept is simple but it ensures worker safety, and prevents damage to underground infrastructure. We’re members of BC One Call and we’re here to help.
