XCG recently assisted 1500985 Ontario Limited in obtaining a Record of Site Condition (RSC) within the City of Kitchener for purposes of the redevelopment of a commercial building in the Downtown core. The City of Kitchener requested that 1500985 Ontario Limited obtain a RSC as a requirement for a building permit to convert a portion of the Property from commercial to residential use.
XCG conducted a comprehensive site-specific risk assessment (SSRA) at the former Kaufman Footwear manufacturing plant in Kitchener, Ontario. Approximately 225,000 litres (50,000 gallons) of naphtha leaked from an underground storage tank (UST) and created a naphtha plume floating on the water table approximately 10 metres (33 feet) below the ground surface.
XCG was hired to replace the consultant that had initially been engaged to do a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and preliminary remedial cost estimate (as the work was found to be inadequate). XCG re-did the Phase I and then designed and implemented a staged series of Phase II and Phase III investigations to delineate and quantify subsurface soil and ground-water impacts on a 30-acre property in Waterloo, Ontario.
Beginning in 2006, Stirling Bridge undertook the remediation and redevelopment of a 5.5 hectare (14 acre) brownfield property in Kingston, Ontario. Environmental site assessment work completed by XCG identified petroleum hydrocarbons contamination on the property, distributed through the soil over a large area behind the former transmission shop.
XCG was retained by Atlas Copco Canada Inc. to conduct Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments at a commercial/industrial property in Dieppe, New Brunswick.
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.
XCG was retained to conduct a Risk Assessment (RA) and develop a Risk Management Plan (RMP) for a former industrial/commercial property in Waterloo, Ontario. The overall objective was to obtain a Record of Site Condition (RSC) prior to the redevelopment of the property as multi-unit residential complex.
XCG Consultants Ltd. (XCG) conducted a Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) at the property located at civic address 150 Wellington Street East in Guelph, Ontario (Phase One Property). The findings of the Phase One ESA identified areas of potential environmental concern (APECs) and that a Phase Two ESA was required before a Record of Site Condition (RSC) could be submitted with respect to all or part of the Phase One Property.
XCG was retained to assist Niagara Waste Systems with the Atlas Remediation Project. This project required collaboration between the City of Welland and Niagara Waste Systems to re-activate the Atlas Steels Landfill. The re-activation of the landfill included expansion of the service area to Ontario-wide and increasing the fill rate to 5,000 tomes per day.
XCG Consultants Ltd. was contracted to complete Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) for seven properties in the Greater Vancouver Area that were under consideration for purchase. The properties were each occupied by vehicle servicing centres and car wash facilities.
