Urban Development & Contaminated Sites
Creating More Sustainable, Healthy & Safe Urban Environments
Our experts have decades of experience in providing a wide range of ground investigation services for both brown and greenfield land. We assist in the planning process for residential and industrial property developments and are known for delivering excellence in regulatory compliance. We strive to engage local providers wherever possible and collaborate with your team to help local and regional entities plan, implement and monitor their projects, creating healthier and more liveable urban environments that protect public and environmental health.
We understand the importance of delivering quality environmental solutions tailored to the specific needs of each project, and are committed to providing the best possible outcomes to enable successful and sustainable urban redevelopment.
Urban Development & Contaminated Site Services Tailored To Your Needs
Designed with your budget and risk profile in mind, EESI provides tailored investigation services to help you gain a thorough understanding of any site contamination issues and give you greater confidence in decision making during the due diligence stage.
Environmental Site Investigations enable you to identify existing and potential environmental contamination on a site before construction begins. As the longest operating contaminated land specialist in Australia, we have a wealth of environmental data on which to draw to ensure a more targeted investigation and accurate fees.
EESI takes a comprehensive approach to waste characterisation, considering all stages of the waste hierarchy to properly characterise waste and provide effective solutions for optimising reuse and minimising disposal costs.
Hydrogeological, vapour, and environmental risk modelling are essential tools for urban development, as they provide vital information about the subsurface environment at a particular site. At EESI, we use our expertise to assess the potential risks associated with a particular site and make recommendations for appropriate remediation strategies.
Using the latest scientific studies and statistical methods, a HERA from EESI can generate site-specific clean-up criteria, saving you thousands in remediation costs.
Construction & Site Environmental plans help to safeguard the environment by reducing the potential for environmental harm during construction. We provide a range of services, including undertaking site assessments and audits, developing environmental management plans, carrying out risk assessments and providing expert advice on legal compliance and environmental regulation.
We proudly utilise our extensive contracting experience to create remediation designs that consider not only the environmental outcomes required, but also practical engineering and contracting constraints that can have a significant impact on your project. For us, the remediation process is not only about improving the built environment, but also restoring the natural environment and maximising the overall value of assets for you.
Effective remediation design helps to ensure that a project area is suitable for its intended use, whether this is residential development, industrial development or park land, and can even help to improve the overall quality of life in an area by addressing environmental issues that can negatively affect public health. Our team has the skills and experience to help you remediate soil and groundwater contamination, both in the ground (in–situ) or after excavation and pumping (ex–situ).
Our Supervisors and Project Managers oversee remediation projects from start to finish while coordinating various stakeholders, mitigating environmental and health impacts and managing potential legal liabilities. With over four decades of expertise in remediation design and end–to–end supervision and management, we are well–versed at managing all risk associated with contaminated sites, the safety of your workers and the broader public.
Validation assessment is an essential component of contamination remediation work, as it enables the measurement and confirmation of objectives set out in a Remediation Action Plan (RAP). This process allows for the quantification of contaminant concentrations in various media, and enables the re-evaluation of risk pathways for both human and ecological receptors to ensure a detailed understanding of contaminant interaction with environmental systems.
The partner of choice for Environmental Earth Sciences International, New Soil are your sustainable soil treatment experts. As a world leader in bioremediation technology, New Soil treats contaminated soils in Australia and internationally, both on client site and off–site at their own EPA licensed bioremediation facility in NSW.
To ensure environmental and human health on contaminated sites, during urban development projects, and long after projects have been completed, it is vital to monitor groundwater, surface water, ground materials and gases accurately and thoroughly. We provide innovative and reliable monitoring solutions for groundwater, surface water, soils and landfill gases.
Groundwater monitoring is an important tool for assessing the potential impacts of urban developments and contaminated sites on the local groundwater supply. Our experienced environmental consultants provide comprehensive groundwater monitoring services to help you protect surrounding ecosystems and communities.
Surface water monitoring allows for the detection of changes in water quality caused by the introduction of pollutants such as chemicals, sediment and runoff. Our experienced team of environmental consultants provides a comprehensive suite of surface water monitoring services.
Soil vapour monitoring can help us monitor the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hydrocarbons and other contaminants in the soil, provides information about the subsurface soil structure and helps to determine the most effective remediation strategies for a particular site. Our soil vapour monitoring services provide you with the information you need to ensure that your land development project is executed in a safe and responsible manner.
Landfill gas & odour monitoring and buffer zone management are important measures for evaluating the impact of landfill sites on the environment, as well as for ensuring regulatory compliance. Our services are science–based and tailored to the complex geology of each landfill site.
EESI provides comprehensive auditing services in NSW, VIC, QLD, NT, and SA, having completed over 350 audits since 1998. Our experienced site auditors offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of planning authorities, ensuring the suitability of a site for a specified use and have an extensive track record of successful audits for residential, commercial/industrial, and public open space projects; giving you the assurance to move forward with confidence.
Create Sustainable Landscapes for Our Future
Over the course of the project lifecycle – from compliance to planning, construction to operations to decommissioning – our clients benefit from nearly forty years of domain expertise, cutting–edge scientific knowledge and a partnership to help them meet their environmental management obligations.
At every stage or your project, we offer science–backed environmental solutions that are in accordance with your risk profile, and work with you to implement measures that help you meet your objectives in the safest, most cost–effective and time–efficient manner.
