Site Investigations

Site Investigations

SESL’S team of Environmental Scientists conduct site investigations to assess environmental impacts from natural and human activities.

Preliminary Site Investigations (often referred to as Phase 1 investigations) identify the potential for contamination to exist at a site for regulatory compliance, due diligence, property acquisition, development application approvals and site rezoning.

Detailed Site Investigations (often referred to as Phase 2 investigations) are undertaken to delineate any contamination present at a site through field measurements and the sampling and analysis of surface and groundwater, soils and soil vapour.

Using the information obtained in site-specific contamination assessments, such as those listed above, SESL can prepare Remedial Action Plans to either remove, contain, treat, or manage harmful substances to ensure the site is suitable for the intended use without posing unacceptable risks to human health or the environment.

We work with property owners, developers, investment groups, federal, state and local government, waste facilities and clients from a range of industrial backgrounds. With offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra, our diverse team can deliver specialist consultation specific to your locality. We offer consistent quality and knowledge of federal, state and local environmental legislation.
For more than 30 years we have applied our extensive knowledge of water, soil, contaminated sites and the natural environment to both the private and public sectors. Our experience has allowed us to build a reputation for delivering technically sound, client-focused projects, with efficient, easy to interpret reports.
We prepare Remedial Action Plans in accordance with all relevant regulatory requirements to enable cost-effective and sustainable solutions to site contamination.
