Globalization and the growing human population have created various environmental challenges. As the world grows closer together, people in every country have realized the need to ensure that future generations have access to clean air and water, fertile soil and open spaces. Issues of environmental management transcend national borders to become global issues, and therefore we must work together to promote sustainable development, the preservation of natural habitats and the improvement of our air and water quality.
We believe in a holistic approach where environmental, social and development needs and measures are addressed and integrated from day one. Joadah’s innovative approach to environmental consulting enables clients to achieve their sustainable business and corporate responsibility aspirations.
Joadah has provided environmental services that include site assessments and Phase I and II investigations; delineation, creation, restoration and permitting of jurisdictional wetlands; biological assessments to determine the existence of protected species; flora/fauna investigation; coastal zone management; groundwater monitoring; remedial actions; geochemical and hydrogeological investigations; hazardous waste studies; contamination assessments; asbestos surveys and abatements; and underground and aboveground storage tank management, assessment, and closure.
Through regular communications with regulatory bodies, we have an intimate understanding of the process that allows us to determine the proponent’s requirements and identify potential obstacles that may affect the timing or cost of a program. Our strong, positive reputation with regional resource coordinators and inspectors has been solidified with consistent, effective environmental performance.
Joadah’s environmental teams are able to leverage the engineering skills of our organization to complement our work. For example, structural and geotechnical engineers provide support around excavations; mechanical, electrical and process professionals can be consulted for remediation system design and implementation; environmental sciences staff can help with the biological sciences; and project management and project controls support facilitate project execution.
Through targeted site investigation and risk assessments, working in conjunction with the project teams, we can deliver an integrated ground engineering strategy for the scheme. We can identify and advise project teams on the key issues to the development of a scheme through a risk-based integrated engineering strategy by balancing between the requirements of foundation design, earthworks design and environmental regulations.
Using state-of-the-art dispersion modelling and monitoring equipment, Joadah's air quality specialists help solve air quality problems quickly and cost-effectively.
Being at the forefront of global response to climate change, we partner with clients to ensure our solutions balance business, technical and sustainability issues.
