SITE INVESTIGATION

Core6 Environmental provides a full suite of contaminated site investigation services ranging from Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (known provincially in British Columbia as a Stage One Preliminary Site Investigation) to Detailed Site Investigation requiring delineation of contaminants across multiple media such as soil, groundwater, sediment, and vapour. From single-family residential properties to large, complex industrial lands, our team has the depth and experience to efficiently complete the work required.

REMEDIATION

Core6 Environmental’s remediation services typically begin with a careful remedial options evaluation factoring in regulatory requirements, technical feasibility, cost, schedule/time constraints, and most importantly our clients’ goals and objectives. With expertise spanning in situ and ex situ remedial methods along with risk assessment solutions, our team is able to offer an optimal solution for virtually any remediation project.

RISK ASSESSMENT

Core6 Environmental’s risk assessment staff have been involved with risk assessment in the province of British Columbia, since its inception in the mid 1990s. With deep expertise in Human Health Risk Assessment, Terrestrial Ecological Risk Assessment and both freshwater and marine Aquatic Ecological Risk Assessment, our team has contributed to regulatory guidance and has completed assessments from urban real estate/land development projects to remote mine sites.
