Protecting the environment requires many challenging issues for businesses, industries and public entities. Allied professionals combine sound engineering principles.
Air Quality Services
Environmental Permitting and Compliance
At Allied, we have broad expertise for a variety of emission sources to help you obtain greater operational flexibility while proactively addressing your regulatory obligations.
We work with facility owners and operators to obtain required air quality permits quickly so you can meet your construction or expansion schedules. We can also help streamline record keeping and monitoring requirements and can assist in securing carbon and/or renewable energy credits for eligible projects. Additionally, we can help you draft business plans, develop benefit/cost analyses, and secure funding.
Our projects typically include air dispersion modeling evaluations and rule applicability assessments to determine requirements under the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) Standards; New Source Performance Standards (NSPS); and state air toxics regulations .
Allied has a team of qualified professionals with extensive experience in performing all phases of due diligence services. We understand your tight project schedules. And we involve your stakeholders early on to avoid potential costly delays.
Our due diligence services help you meet the wide variety of regulatory or industry standards and prepare reliable and defensible environmental documents. Whether you are involved in real estate or business acquisition, divestiture, financing, refinancing, or evaluating property conditions for other reasons, an ESA or other appropriate level of due diligence can protect you against possible future liabilities.
Allied’s due diligence experience includes, but is not limited to:
- Asbestos Inspections
- Geotechnical Evaluations
- Lead-based Paint Evaluations
- Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA)
- Phase II subsurface site investigations
- Property Condition Evaluations
- Site Remediation Planning and Design
- Site Remediation
- Transaction Screenings
We understand the environmental documentation process is critical to your budget and schedule. Our proven knowledge and experience working on Phase I and II Site Assessments, Environmental Impact Statements (EIS), Environmental Assessments (EA), Environmental Assessment Worksheets (EAW), Project Memorandums (PM) and more will help you complete the environmental documentation process accurately, efficiently, and successfully.
Environmental Permitting and Compliance
Industries are faced with an ongoing challenge of maintaining compliance with a wide variety of federal, state and local environmental regulations. New regulations are adopted and existing regulations are modified with minimal notification. Accordingly, the facility must devote valuable resources to meet agency requirements or face potential financial liabilities associated with noncompliance or violations.
Our environmental staff of engineers and scientists have completed numerous environmental audits for industrial facilities, which involves a detailed assessment of a facility’s permits, procedures, training, record keeping and reporting. Auditors review not only the completeness of the facility’s management systems, but also review the detailed records for compliance with the regulations.
We also specialize in environmental overviews, which is less detailed than the environmental audit. The overview focuses on management systems to determine if proper permits are held, records are kept and reports submitted. The auditor does not evaluate the completeness of records nor the accuracy of reports in an overview.
Today’s stormwater management projects are more complex than ever. There is need to balance a multitude of requirements including water quantity, water quality, recreational and aesthetic values and economic considerations. Our approach is to listen to our clients and design complete multi-objective stormwater solutions that fulfill all your requirements.
We are deeply familiar with NPDES Permit requirements, including the storm water program for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) and Best Management Practices (BMP) design. Additionally, our staff designs Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) and performs construction inspection for environmental compliance.
