Env/Geotechnical Engineering

 

Environmental Engineering Commercial | Industrial

As the global stewardship emerges towards stringent environmental awareness, assessment of potential environmental effects serves as a framework in the planning of sustainable development. Be it an industrial infrastructure or a commercial land-use project, our environmental engineers work relentlessly to identify and assess the risks pertaining to environmental contamination in soil, water or sediments.

Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is primarily defined as a systematic qualitative process to assess the environmental liabilities of a site. The assessment is tiered into three major phases. Phase I ESA is to determine if evidence of potential or actual contamination exists in connection with a site, which may be present as a result of current or past activities on the site or neighbouring properties. The scope of work is a non-intrusive investigation which involves reviewing of historical records, interviews with relevant personnel, site visit and evaluation of information & report. It’s only a revelation of potential sources of contamination in Phase I that leads to Phase II verification by sampling and analysis of soil and groundwater. A Phase III ESA is undertaken when the contamination is confirmed to exist at a particular site.

How we offer to help:

  • ESA Phase I for commercial or industrial real estate acquisition and banking reliability
  • ESA Phase II for identifying the presence of any adverse environmental impact due to the previous occupancy on a particular property.
  • ESA Phase III for cleaning-up/remediation of an existing liability on a property due to the migration off the contamination to the adjacent property or an order from a regulatory agency.

Geotechnical Engineering Services - Commercial | Industrial

Geotechnical Engineering division of MR Engineering provides an in-depth assessment of the behaviour of earth material, geotechnical testing, analysis, interpretation and design. MR Engineering has an experienced Geotechnical Engineering team who delivers state-of-the-art engineering solutions for a wide range of geotechnical engineering problems.

How we offer to help:

Geotechnical Investigation

A geotechnical investigation is undertaken to determine the soil profile and groundwater status within the footprint of any proposed infrastructure. Based on the findings, recommendations are suggested for foundation design of the structure and underground utilities. Geotechnical investigation may consist of:

  • Conducting desk study, field reconnaissance, geological mapping and analyzing.
  • Contacting with Alberta One Call and a private locator to locate underground utilities
  • Borehole drilling based on drill rig accessibility, site topography and existing site utilities
  • Field sampling via drilling, coring, test pitting, Shelby Tube sampling, and SPT tube sampling
  • Conducting SPT, CPT, Field Vane Shear Test, field load test, groundwater measurement, and other testing techniques as required
  • Conducting Standard, advanced, and custom-designed lab tests on field samples
  • Installing geotechnical instruments and monitoring field performance
  • Submitting geotechnical report with recommendations
