Hazard mapping and risk analysis are critical for assessing and quantifying your company’s exposure to potential threats.

Our environmental team can help companies

  • Limit exposure
  • Categorise hazards
  • Define procedures/plans to lessen any impacts


Our research helps clients manage:

  • Define procedures/plans to lessen any impactsClimate change
  • Mitigate Flood Risks
  • Evaluate sites for development
  • Guide infrastructure design 
  • Ensure regulatory compliance
  • identify and map contaminated land
  • Assist with landfill design and land remediation strategies
  • Manage waste facilities throughout all lifecycle phases including (landfill, Material Recycling Facilities (MRF), Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT), In-Vessel Composting (IVC), Waste Combustion Processes, including energy from waste plants

Our survey, mapping, and modelling services support clients

  • Define procedures/plans to lessen any impactsBuilding development
  • Energy, environmental health and safety (EHS)
