What Can an Environmental Engineering Consulting Firm Do?

An environmental engineering consulting firm can assist you with everything from system design and project oversight to managing ongoing reporting and preparing compliance submittals. You may also enlist their help in writing grant applications for FEMA or other government-sponsored funding assistance.

So what does the work involve?

Environmental consulting.

This comes into play when you need assistance handling – or avoiding – environmental compliance problems. Petroleum fuels and all types of officially classified hazardous chemicals are regulated by a variety of federal, state and local jurisdictions so you often have to report to and satisfy multiple agencies.

A consulting firm can assist you with services such as fuel oil and chemical storage compliance and OSHA compliance. They can also perform groundwater and soil investigations and conduct a Phase 1 environmental site assessment if you’re a lender or potential purchaser of commercial property.

Environmental engineering. 

Consulting firms offer a variety of services to assist with everything from planning and design to construction and operation of facilities to handle municipal and industrial water, air, wastewater, or storage and handling of hazardous materials or solid waste. They can work with you on new projects or when your existing facilities need an upgrade or expansion.

A consulting firm that includes both engineers and hydrogeologists can help you design remedial systems that mitigate the effects of contaminated soil, groundwater and soil vapor, including systems that manage water, wastewater, stormwater or air.

Civil engineering.

This is the intersection of mathematical and physical sciences, where theory and practice come together to create structures, industrial facilities and transportation infrastructure that improve our communities.

Within the realm of civil engineering, you can look to an environmental engineering consulting firm for help with things like roadway design, construction project oversight and design and installation of storage tank systems.

Aside from specific expertise, what should you look for?

  • Look for an environmental engineering consulting firm that has enough experience working with these agencies to have developed a mutually respectful relationship.
  • Look for a firm that has a working knowledge of your type of location and issue. They’ll know what’s relevant and what’s superfluous, so your work can move forward efficiently and cost-effectively without overlooking important details.
  • Hiring the right environmental engineering consulting firm will give you cost-effective answers to all your questions and ongoing support.
