Environmental Management

Manage air, noise, water and land impacts while meeting and exceeding sustainability and environmental goals

Environmental Management

Reducing environmental impacts – air, noise, water and land – during the construction and operation of your facilities can be achieved by integrating environmental expertise throughout your project’s lifecycle. Our environmental regulatory specialists, scientists, engineers and construction professionals we will help you assess, plan, finance, manage and deliver solutions that can help you meet and exceed your sustainability and environmental goals.

From due diligence assessments to identifying compliance challenges, potential stakeholder concerns, regulatory and environmental risks, our team partners with you to develop cost-effective and low-risk environmental management strategies.

Air emissions standards are rapidly evolving as new regulatory frameworks enter force at the state, national and international level. Drawing on the deployment of major air quality control systems that date back to 1964, we apply extensive and in-depth experience across all industries. We provide full programmatic solutions for upgrading conventional and nuclear power facilities to meet more stringent emissions regulations and can extend our capabilities to plan, manage and deliver air quality management solutions for large energy users including water and wastewater utilities, oil & gas processors, data center providers and other industrial and manufacturing facilities.
