XCG was retained by an industrial services client to conduct multi-site Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) for due diligence purposes as part of a corporate acquisition of several waste management and processing facilities.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments and Building Condition Assessments at 46 Sites in Ontario and Quebec

The Phase I ESAs and BCAs were required to be conducted in the retail/commercial or quick-service restaurant buildings on 46 properties within Ontario and Quebec.

XCG Consulting Limited and Cole Engineering Group Ltd. Joint Venture (COLE & XCG JV) were retained by a government agency on behalf of the owner and manager of the facilities to complete Designated Substances and Hazardous Material Surveys (DSHMS), to update the designated substance inventory database, and to serve as a resource for the facilities in the management of their buildings within the project site.

Risk Assessment for Residential/Commercial Mixed Use Centre Suites on 3rd Ave.

When redevelopment plans for a former three-storey printing plant building identified the need for a Record of Site Condition (RSC), XCG was called upon to complete the required assessment activities leading up to the RSC. The property was originally developed in 1922 as a major printing factory. When the printing operation moved to a new facility circa 1972, an office conversion occurred in the mid-1970s.
