Developing a property?

Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) Phase I is typically required as a due diligence measure in a real estate or financing agreement on a property, especially if the property is close to a potential contaminated site. Whilst a Phase 1 might be a requirement of the lender to secure a loan, we feel these are also especially important for you to protect against any unforeseen – and costly – environmental remediation work.

Buying a property near a creek?

Our Environmental assessment will help you to make better decisions about the future development possibilities on your land. These services will be of particular interest to you if you’re thinking of buying land or developing your property that has a fish-bearing stream either on or adjacent to the property.

Cutting ground?

Before you excavate, drill or cut ground, you should consider having the ground GPR scanned for unmarked utilities or hazards including utility lines, pipes and other underground infrastructures. The concept is simple, and it ensures worker safety, public safety and damage prevention to underground infrastructure. We’re members of BC One Call  and here to help.
