Site Assessment & Characterization

When performing Site Assessment & Characterization (SA&C) services, AECC provides practical, proven, and thorough investigations. Our site assessment / due-diligence efforts are intended to help the Client accurately understand the issues with their respective site. Through this exercise, the Client may make informed decisions to facilitate property transactions or acquisitions, execute remediation projects, and budget / manage liabilities associated with a site. During site characterization work, AECC focuses on determining the nature, extent, and potential mobility of contamination (if any), potential risks associated with contamination. This information is then evaluated by our Senior Management team to determine appropriate remedial technologies and approaches to obtain site closure.
