With years of experience and hundreds of jobs under our belt, we’ve got the expertise you need to perform due diligence, correct environmental issues, and negotiate Brownfields redevelopment.

Here’s a breakdown of just a few of our Environmental Engineering Services.

Site Investigation

If you’re beginning a project, Shield’s investigative experts can help you determine your risks, goals, and any actions you need to take. Prior to your site investigation we’ll decide together what data is important and exactly how it will be collected. Our experience working with environmental contaminants on all types of jobs, from industrial hazardous waste issues to undeveloped property poised for new construction, will help you achieve your goals.

Hazardous Waste

Dealing with hazardous waste sites is one of Shield Engineering’s specialties. Our clients include Fortune 100 companies, major chemical manufacturers, and law firms. We’ve worked on projects regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), and on North Carolina Inactive Hazardous Sites. Shield’s team of hazardous materials experts are experienced with a wide array of contaminants such as fertilizers, acids, chlorinated compounds, metals, PCBs, petroleum, and much, much more. Shield should be your first call if you’re dealing with hazardous waste.

Brownfields Redevelopment

Shield's focus on real estate transactions coupled with our expertise in assessing and remediating contaminants makes us a natural fit for redevelopment of impaired properties. In fact, we were one of the first teams to effectively implement the integration of soil vapor intrusion investigation into the Brownfields assessment process in North Carolina. Shield has experienced professionals on staff that understand complex redevelopment projects and the hurdles associated with said projects. We’re an industry leader in Brownfields redevelopment and have been contracted for jobs throughout the Southeast.

Underground Storage Tank (UST)

Shield’s Environmental Group provides geologic and hydrogeological investigation, environmental assessment and remedial action services throughout the commercial, industrial, and municipal sectors. Projects range from retail fuel service stations to large commercial and industrial multi-contaminant assessments. The Environmental Group is experienced in all phases of assessment and corrective action. Our team consists of registered and licensed professional engineers and geologists, scientists, and technicians who are accustomed to working day-to-day with clients and various regulatory agencies to maintain compliance while implementing cost-effective underground tank solutions.

Soil and Groundwater Remediation

Property owners can find themselves faced with possible voluntary or state-directed environmental clean ups. Shield can assist you with the complex decisions involved in groundwater cleanup based on your risk profile and exit strategy. If you have a site that is lingering or in regulatory limbo in North Carolina or any state in the southeast and need to get it closed, give us a call. Our focus is, and has always been, on expediting site closure as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

Regulatory Compliance

Are you unsure whether your operation meets the requirements of local, state, or federal environmental laws? Shield can help determine which statutes apply to your facility and come up with a compliance strategy that suits your timeline and your budget. It’s always better to take steps to become regulation-compliant early on in the process rather than playing catch-up later on. We can answer any questions you might have on the environmental laws and regulations you need to be aware of in your state.

Risk Consulting

Businesses put great expense and effort into managing risk. Environmental liabilities can be an important and costly component of a business’s risk. Environmental liabilities can come in the form of exposure to employees, purchasing impaired property, and violation of environmental statutes. Shield’s highly experienced professionals can take a holistic approach to evaluating and managing all aspects of your company’s potential environmental liabilities. And that’s not all. If you didn’t find what you’re looking for above, give Shield Engineering a call. We’ve been handling Environmental Engineering Services for over 25 years and we may just have a solution that works for your project.
