Once it was determined that a fuel oil leak had occurred on a multi-residential property in Kitchener, XCG was requested to represent the interests of the owner and insurer of the neighbouring single family residential property. This project was completed with the oversight of legal counsel.
Since 2009, XCG has been working at 5 Arthur Street in Guelph, ON assisting in the redevelopment of a long-time industrial property into an up-scale urban development.
When XCG arrived on site to complete a Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) at 152 Macdonell in late 2011, it was a vacant lot, zoned for commercial use. The property however had a history of uses including tire service/vulcanizing and repair shop (1930s to the early/mid- 1960s), a battery sales and service company (1930s to 1940s), and more recently an office building with a daycare. The Phase One ESA, and review of previous investigations identified several Areas of Potential Environmental Concern (APEC`s) including land uses on neighbouring properties and underground storage tanks on 152 Macdonell itself.
When a fuel oil tank ruptured and spilled fuel oil into the basement of a residential home in Eramosa Township, just east of Guelph, Ontario, Dumfries Mutual Insurance called XCG to provide impact assessment and remediation activities to return the home and property to pre-spill condition.
