Project Coordination and Management


 Proper coordination is essential to any environmental or development project’s success. Historically, this coordination role has been assigned to task-specific contractors (e.g., design group, soil contractor etc.), who may get “lost among the trees”, or to the corporate environmental professionals themselves. While the modern day corporate environmental professionals are qualified, they often have a portfolio of sites that requires constant involvement to successfully complete each project. It is in support of this group of corporate professionals that C2 REM was founded in 1995.


 Our senior staff has experience as environmental agency managers and/or as corporate environmental managers. We bring this comprehensive perspective to each project thus providing an all-in-one environmental coordination, representation, and management approach to owners and prospective purchasers of impacted properties.  C2 REM’s goal is to develop partnerships with in-house corporate environmental professionals to solve issues and meet project and corporate objectives.  

DESIGN

C2 REM’s remedial design process includes analyses and feasibility studies of various remedial actions and their effectiveness on the remediation of contaminants. Our professional engineers, geologists, soil scientists and other professionals leverage their expertise in selecting the technology (or multiple technologies) which will be the most cost effective for each site’s unique characteristics and the future use of the site. C2 REM has operated and maintained several remedial systems from sub-slab depressurization systems to complex multi-phase systems with a variety of processes including:


  • Groundwater extraction and treatment (pump and treat)
  • Liquid and solid carbon treatment
  • Bio-venting and other bio-remediation approaches

INVESTIGATION

Phase I

C2 REM offers phase 1 environmental site assessments which begin with a focused approach in gathering related data through conventional channels and the establishment of a project hypothesis that takes the “scatter” out of the data. This approach provides for the development of a detailed scope of work that results in remedies for the most complex projects. C2 REM's goal for phase I assessments is to determine the likelihood of Recognized Environmental Conditions within the property. 


Phase II

C2 REM offers phase II environmental site assessments which include;

Performing intrusive studies as necessary to evaluate liability and potential health risks, soil and water sampling to determine potential contamination, and acquiring lab results within regulatory guidelines. C2 REM may also include inspections to determine the presence of unwanted hazardous contaminates, along with identification of ecological factors that may affect the land use. C2 REMS goal for Phase II assessment is to determine the presence of environmental contaminants.
