We manage real-world compliance risk, not threats of fines or charges under the Environmental Protection or Fisheries Acts. We take care of that too, but the real value we bring to the table is managing compliance risk that stops work on job-sites. Things like discharge that doesn’t meet standard or when things happen, and a silt fence is breached. The work GEMS does keeps contracts moving.
And our clients get more work when they hire GEMS because agencies are confident that we do what we say and are transparent in our approach. They get the data, information and reporting that they are looking for and makes their jobs easier.
We all know, that that things happen on-Site, no matter how much planning you do or how many controls and contingencies you have in place. This is where GEMS shines, whether we are doing fish rescue after as summer storm, responding to an incident or figuring out a change condition. We understand urgency.
Planned or emergency situations, GEMS responds quickly, understand client needs, contract specifications and permitting requirements and regulations. We understand what is within and beyond contractual obligations and will advise our clients to act accordingly.DURING CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
Environmental permit and approval obligations rarely end with construction when you are dealing with groundwater or natural systems. Agencies want to confirm that disturbed ecosystems are restored, groundwater systems recover and that designed systems are functioning like they are supposed to.
These post-construction monitoring programs are always sensitive, because, if they are not design, executed and managed properly they are a pure cost to the project. Project funding is generally depleted when construction is finished.
GEMS monitors post-construction sites like we’re spending our own money.POST-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
