How the Environment Can Impact Your Construction Project

Apr 5, 2022 | General | 0 comments

When planning for your construction project, it’s important to keep in mind how the environment may affect your process and end results. Because of this, it pays to have help from a professional engineering firm in Logan, UT that can provide wetland delineation consulting, Phase 1 ESAs, FEMA flood certificates, and more.

Here’s a deeper dive into what some environment planning jobs entail and how they can keep your property and the environment safe and protected.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

We can conduct Phase I ESAs to determine if soil, groundwater, or other elements on or beneath your property could potentially pose a threat to the environment and human health. While the report is typically prepared for a real estate holding, Phase I ESAs are generally considered the first step in the process of environmental due diligence.

Wetland Delineation 

Determining the accurate boundaries of wetland within a plot of land during a wetland permitting and wetland delineation process helps ensure that the habitat is preserved. If the wetland will be impacted by construction, our crew will assist land owners, developers, contractors, and more during the permitting process to guarantee that your project is in compliance with the appropriate federal, state, and local requirements.

FEMA Flood Certification

If the property or plot you are building on has flooding risks, you will likely need a flood certificate through the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This certificate allows you to obtain an accurate insurance rate so you are protected in case flooding happens. This process may seem complicated, but our team at CSG can quickly analyze your property’s elevation and file the certificate if deemed necessary.
