Value

At ECT ‘value’ is measured in your terms, not ours. It’s a philosophy that’s enabled us to be ranked among the top environmental engineering firms in the country for more than two decades.

More importantly, it’s a philosophy that’s enabled us to serve as a trusted advisor and strategic partner to a host of market-leading clients in pivotal components of the economy.

Understanding – When it comes to a real estate transaction, remedial design or construction project, we understand ‘time is money.’ Our staff offer strong working relationships with various state and federal agency personnel and a thorough understanding of their expectations, which is important because it enables us to accelerate completion schedules and deadlines across an array of regulatory programs.

Outcomes – If you’re looking for an assessment and remediation firm whose staff is committed to achieving your objectives, ECT is that firm. Since our founding in 1988, ECT’s project teams have continued to earn client trust by delivering practical solutions aligned with individual client needs.

Transactional Due Diligence

ECT’s comprehensive research, reconnaissance, and sampling skills enable informed business decisions on matters of liability and risk to human health, safety, and the environment.

Site Characterization

Using innovative assessment tools like environmental visualization and advanced geostatistical applications, ECT’s characterization services facilitate a rapid, cost-effective, and statistically relevant means of defining the magnitude, nature, and extent of contamination in soil, sediment, groundwater, and soil gas.

Regulatory Agency Negotiation

At ECT we understand the genesis of state and federal environmental statutes, which is important because it enables us to balance legislative intent with a client’s economic realities and negotiate site- specific cleanup levels and remediation endpoints that are compliant and reasonable.

Remedy Selection/Design

ECT’s remedial design teams use evaluations of environmental and human health risks to identify and design cost-effective and technically appropriate solutions, including those involving engineering controls, institutional controls and/or restrictive covenants.

Decommissioning

Whether an above-ground or underground storage tank system, multi-story industrial complex, or power plant, ECT’s engineering teams develop specifications and coordinate contractors to assure safe, efficient, and environmentally-responsible outcomes for decommissioning projects of all sizes.

Redevelopment Support

The members of ECT’s brownfield interaction team help clients to not only identify and leverage incentive-based programs, including grants, loans, tax credits and tax-increment financing to facilitate assessment, cleanup and (re)development, but to design post-construction monitoring systems required to demonstrate compliance with permitting, institutional controls or a regulatory order, and assure the health, safety, and welfare of future site users.
