Consulting

We ensure our clients’ business goals are achieved, while their environmental impacts are reduced.

Our in-house experts have decades’ worth of experience navigating Alberta’s environmental regulatory environment.

We have built a team of professionals specializing in soils, vegetation, wetlands, wildlife, forests, and geographic information systems (GIS) that work together to ensure our clients’ projects move through the regulatory process smoothly. Together, we combine expert scientific knowledge with high-resolution GIS analysis to develop innovative solutions for our clients.

Environmental Consulting Services

Our experts work with our clients to identify the limiting factors involving their site’s reclamation.

We develop reclamation plans to ensure your sites are reclaimed to provincial standards. Using our exhaustive knowledge of soils, vegetation, wetlands, and forests – our team of professionals have the knowledge to ensure your site is reclaimed in a cost-effective manner.

We have a proven, high-level competency in the area of soil classification.

Our team works to evaluate soil features that impact the development and reclamation of your project sites. We do everything from identifying soil horizons and textures to using the Von Post Humification Scale as well as measuring soil pH and conductivity. Our professionals will analyze your site’s soil and determine a procedure on how your project should proceed.

Spatial Data Analysis

Spatial data analysis is integral to making wise, well-informed decisions that are based on data – not hunches. GIS allows you to overlay various data sets to assess, understand, question, interpret, and visualize spatial data. This is instrumental in delineating relationships and, ultimately, to revealing patterns and trends.

Spatial Data Management

A spatial data management system maximizes the value of GIS; it enables managers to make fast-and-confident decisions.

As the volume of location-based data grows exponentially, significant time and resources must be invested into collecting and curating this data. Without effective spatial data management, much of this data could become lost or inaccessible to future projects.

Mapping

Never again be on site with a map that is missing data or features, is overly complex, or simply inaccurate.

An effective map conveys accurate information; it communicates exactly what you need — and nothing more. However, an excellent map is not only accurate and up to date, but it also clearly displays the right information you need, in the format that works best for your situation.

Environmental inspections are critical for the effective construction of pipelines, powerlines, roads, and mines. Inspection programs have evolved from baseline studies and environmental protection plans to include the consideration of regional and seasonal characteristics.

Additionally, the supervision of field activities and the development of proactive responses to environmental impacts are essential to good environmental inspection programs. Our professional team assists clients in this area by providing a wide range of services, such as: monitoring and assessment, map production, and report creation.

Working within the Government of Alberta’s consultation guidelines for First Nations and Métis, our team ensures that our clients build lasting and meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities.

From helping to establish the relationships, to actively learning and incorporating traditional ecological knowledge into our plans, our professionals work closely with our clients and the communities to foster a trusting relationship.
