Industrial facilities often engage in processes that result in various emissions to the environment, including air pollutants, water, noise, odour and vibrations. In Ontario, stringent regulations govern these emissions, requiring thorough calculations and approvals. Navigating this regulatory landscape can be complex, and our team is more than equipped to guide your facility through the compliance process. We’ll assist you in aligning your operations with Ontario’s environmental regulations.
The sale or purchase of an industrial property often involves a crucial step known as the Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). Lenders frequently require this assessment for due diligence purposes. The investigation delves into the property’s history and surrounding area to identify potential contamination risks to soil or groundwater. Should any concerns emerge during the Phase One ESA, it may lead to a Phase Two ESA, involving targeted soil and groundwater sampling in areas of interest identified earlier. Our team is ready to guide you through the process and provide the necessary environmental investigations for your industrial property.
In cases where contamination is detected at an industrial property, ongoing monitoring or remediation becomes essential. This monitoring typically includes regular groundwater sampling on-site. In specific scenarios, monitoring the quality of soil vapour beneath buildings might be required to assess whether any gases resulting from contamination are migrating into the structure. At Peritus, we offer the a skilled team to manage the complexities of environmental monitoring, helping your industrial property remain compliant and safeguarded.
Industrial machinery, pipes, and insulation can contain hazardous substances such as asbestos. A designated substance survey is a vital tool to identify these materials within your facility and determine their locations. This survey helps you to safeguard your workers from accidental exposure to or disturbance of hazardous materials. In cases where these materials are integral to your industrial processes, creating an inventory of their locations is a proactive safety measure. This inventory reduces contact with hazardous materials and lowers future survey costs.
Peritus Environmental Consultants stands as your dedicated partner in addressing the unique requirements of industrial property ownership. Our services are designed to facilitate compliance with regulatory standards, manage contamination concerns, and provide strategic guidance to aid the success of your industrial property ventures.
