Methane Venting System – Construction Management

Based on our previous work on a commercial property that was next to a historical municipal landfill, the new owner of a retail plaza requested XCG to assist with the implementation of a methane protection system. Due to the close proximity of the old landfill, a condition of development was that full protection from possible methane intrusion was to be provided for any and all buildings constructed.

    Risk Based Investigation and Risk Management Measures Implementation

Risk Based Investigation and Risk Management Measures Implementation

When a prominent Canadian realty management firm was expanding retail developments in their Hamilton, Ontario retail plaza property, XCG was called to quickly investigate the impacts from a historic dry-cleaning operation that occupied the property circa 1965. The chlorinated volatile organic compound (cVOC) impacts from the former dry-cleaning operations were identified and quantified in soil, bedrock, and groundwater.

SR (Sustained Release) ISCO Reagent Case Study

Achieving remediation site closure can be challenging, time consuming, and costly. Treatment train approaches are often a practical means to address difficult remediation sites. The optimal approach to soil and groundwater clean-up often requires the use of multiple technologies either sequentially or concurrently to achieve the most cost-effective approach throughout the entire life cycle of cleanup at a project site.
