Rethink, restore, renew: addressing complex site contamination challenges by developing innovative, integrated solutions

Innovative restoration solutions for complex site contamination challenges aligned with our customers’ priorities: regulatory closure, risk management and site re-use. We make your priorities our business, realising the potential of your assets through reduced liabilities and integrated repurposing strategies for the highest and best use while balancing near-term remedial costs and long-term operations and maintenance (O&M) expenses.

Rethinking remediation

From breakthrough remediation projects to applying innovative technology to conventional waste management solutions, we apply our proven technical expertise to solve environmental liability issues.

We start with the future “end state” for your liability and work back into the optimised closure strategy to enable our customers to maximise value of the asset after remediation while balancing risks, unknowns, and capital and O&M costs.

Getting to site closure is more feasible when stakeholders and regulatory agencies see the possibilities of future productive site re-use and our customers achieve closure at lower life-cycle costs.

We start from solid foundations, building on a sound track record of excellence. We integrate a full range of environmental remediation services from site investigations and risk assessment through closure plans, remedial design, remediation, facility decommissioning and site redevelopment. Our expertise balances local regulatory knowledge with global subject matter experts, and we serve customers across all sectors and all environmental media

First to the future

Our record is one of safety, leadership and experience in creating customised, innovative solutions that save money and create value, while balancing the need to meet environmental obligations. This approach is strengthened by our cross-functional teams that understand both business and the regulatory environments.
