Environmental Services

The rules keep changing – property transactions are no longer simple. As the risk and liability increase, so does your need for environmental advice you can trust.

Attention to Change

As awareness of environmental issues has grown, so have the number of laws governing property uses and transactions.

We specialize in helping developers, lending institutions, and individuals assess the condition of land they own, plan to purchase, or want to develop. Environmental laws make liability costly and far-reaching, holding unsuspecting buyers, developers, and lenders responsible for cleanup. Our site assessments identify potential liability for environmental problems by tracing the history of past land use and ownership, documenting current site conditions through a site reconnaissance, and researching nearby potentially hazardous spill sites or businesses.

If petroleum hydrocarbon contamination or hazardous materials are discovered, Geotech Consultants, Inc. can help tailor a cleanup strategy that carefully balances the client’s individual plans with state and federal regulations while protecting public health and the environment.

Attention to Detail

Every project is planned in consultation with the client, so that we gain a clear picture of your needs. The diversity of our staff ensures that your site receives the benefit of careful review from many perspectives. Our environmental engineers and assessors are experienced and knowledgeable in all areas of the environmental field, including new governmental regulations, engineering geology, and effective cleanup methods.

Our expertise includes the design and installation of vapor extraction systems, and use of bioremediation state of the art techniques for cleaning up subsurface petroleum and solvent contamination. We also use ground penetrating radar or magnetic inductive methods to locate old underground fuel tanks. Our staff keeps up to date with changing regulations and hold state and federal environmental certificates for work with hazardous materials conditions.

Attention to You

Our goal is to provide cost-effective service that is responsive to your time frame, budget, and future site plans. This policy may explain our growing number of repeat customers in the Puget Sound region and the expansion of our services to Oregon, Idaho, Montana, California, Nevada, and Utah.
