With our team of environmental scientists and engineers, we specialize in providing comprehensive support to assess the environmental impact of brownfield properties or underutilized spaces where previous industrial or commercial activities may have caused contamination.
Our Phase One Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) are conducted using a systematic approach to identify potential environmental concerns.
This initial phase involves a review of historical and current site activities, including aerial imagery, city directories, and government databases. On-site inspections and interviews with knowledgeable individuals are integral to our process.
Peritus Environmental specializes in coordinating and executing Phase Two Environmental Site Assessments for various property types and scenarios. The primary purpose of Phase Two Environmental Site Assessments is to investigate whether contaminants are present in the potential areas identified by the Phase One assessment and to establish a baseline understanding of their location and concentration.
Our Phase One and Two Environmental Site Assessments adhere to the standards outlined in Ontario Regulation 153/04 or the Canadian Standards Association (CSA-Z769-00). These ESAs are essential for property transactions and development endeavours.
Contamination revealed in a Phase Two Environmental Site Assessment does not always mean extensive and costly remediation efforts. Our Risk Assessments determine if the identified issues pose risks to human and ecological health. This approach is particularly valuable when traditional remediation is not feasible due to technical, financial, or project timeline considerations.
Our experienced Qualified Persons Risk Assessment (QPRA) have successfully navigated a diverse range of contaminated scenarios, securing our position among Ontario’s top five companies with the highest number of approved risk assessments under the revised Ontario Regulation 153/04.
With experience in designing and implementing contaminant remediation solutions, our team is well-equipped to handle projects of varying complexity. From straightforward approaches to more intricate engineered systems, our team brings a diverse skill set encompassing engineering, construction, and remediation. We’ve successfully overseen the remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil across southern Ontario.

Our experience in Phase One and Phase Two Environmental Site Assessments, Risk Assessments, Remediation and Remedial Design helps your property align with the necessary regulatory standards outlined in Ontario Regulation 153/04 as amended.
Recognizing the importance of a comprehensive technical assessment, our commitment to excellence extends beyond our own projects. We offer peer review services for reports prepared by other environmental consultants. This service is offered to fellow consultants seeking a second opinion for due diligence, clients who have collaborated with other consulting firms and government agencies and municipalities who need to supplement their in-house consulting resources.
According to Ontario regulations, property owners are legally obliged to eliminate above and underground storage tanks that are no longer in use. This process demands a knowledgeable team, as improper removal could lead to a significant chemical spill, jeopardizing the property’s integrity and the surrounding environment.
Our company is experienced in the coordination and execution of locating storage tanks, safe removal procedures and addressing any potential contamination that may have stemmed from their presence.
