Virtually every aspect of our lives and businesses is impacted by environmental issues: clean air and water, hazardous waste disposal, underground storage tanks (USTs), recycling, agricultural run-off and wetlands mitigation, etc. Coordination with consulting engineers and scientists and thorough due diligence are the keys to anticipating and avoiding or minimizing adverse impacts.
Indoor environmental conditions are a growing concern in our world. Unchecked moisture intrusion and water reservoir build-up in buildings cause microbial growth contamination, exposure to bio-toxins and property loss. Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and related conditions, Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome and Mycotoxicosis may render residences uninhabitable and workplaces debilitating.
