In December of 2015, XCG was retained by a seller to provide environmental consulting services during a sale of a hotel located in Woodstock, Ontario. Site investigations completed by the purchaser’s consultant identified a localised presence of chloride, trichloroethylene (TCE) as well as benzene, toluene, and ethylbenzene (BTE) in groundwater at concentrations that were above the generic MOECC Table 2 criteria published in a document entitled “Soil, Ground Water and Sediment Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act,” dated April 15, 2011 (MOECC Standards).

After over five years of trying to obtain Site Plan Approval, XCG was retained and was instrumental in clearing all of the environmental conditions imposed by the Municipality and our client was able to proceed with the redevelopment of their property with a new anchor tenant store.
XCG was retained in 2015 to conduct a Phase I ESA for refinancing purposes of an industrial property that XCG had previously conducted a Phase I ESA and Phase II ESA in late 2009.
XCG was contracted to complete a Phase I ESA for a downtown Edmonton office tower that shares a three storey underground parking garage with the adjacent property.
