are undertaken to assess the potential
of soil and groundwater contamination to exist as well as quantifying the problem where it does exist.
The Resolve team of environmental engineers and scientists are experts in the environmental assessment of properties ranging from greenfield development through to heavy industrial complexes.
Our team of experts specialise in the following aspects of environmental site assessment:
Resolve is experienced in assessing properties for a range of purposes across a wide range of client’s industries.
Our specialists have extensive experience working with:
Resolve provides practical and cost-effective
solutions for the remediation of contaminated soil, water and ground gas. Remediation management includes the design, implementation and operation and maintenance of systems.
Turnkey solutions are provided for the treatment
of soil and groundwater affected by a wide range of
Resolve has a strong history in providing
remediation solutions over a broad range of industry including petrochemical, chemical manufacture and storage, property development, landfill and waste,
railways and infrastructure development.
Resolve's remediation solutions can be offered on
a lump sum basis and are offered under the single
point of accountability model; ensuring the project
is completed with simplicity and surety for the client.
Understanding the risk posed by contaminants is essential to developing cost effective,
pragmatic solutions to contaminated sites.
Resolve has the experience and expertise in risk assessment across a wide range of contaminated
sites as well as landfill facilities.
• Derivation of site specific threshold concentrations
• Vapour intrusion assessment and modelling;
• Fate and transport modelling;
• Toxicologic assessment;
• Landfill gas sampling/monitoring
• Landfill gas migration modelling
• Ground gas risk characterisation
All risk can be managed. Resolve has the in-house technical ability to design and implement appropriate remediation and mitigation solutions to all environments.
Involving Resolve’s Risk Assessment team early in your project will save time and costs.
We have a unique perspective when it comes to assessing the potential risks and potential rewards of transacting in
the contaminated land market.
As well as our comprehensive understanding of environmental liability we also have a good understanding
of our clients’ commercial drivers. This balanced perspective enables us to unlock the value of complicated and contaminated properties where other consultants only see
a prohibitive risk.
We have helped our clients have considerable commercial success on properties considered by other consultancies
to be too problematic to consider.
Our successful solutions have been developed for a range
of problematic sites and include:

The right geotechnical advice is imperative to
ensuring that your earthworks are completed safely
and cost effectively. Resolve’s partnering geotechnical engineers and consultants ensure that our civil and remediation works are always completed to the
Our specialists deliver solutions across the investigation, analysis and design phases of earth moving projects with particular expertise in:
Most soil and groundwater remediation projects require a degree of civil works to be undertaken in order to achieve the stated clean-up objective. Such works may include the decommissioning of site infrastructure (both above and below ground) as well as soil excavation and bulk material transport and disposal. Resolve operates as a single point of accountability so that our clients do not have to engage several independent organisations to meet their goals. The single point of accountability (SPA) model has proven to be a cost-effective and streamlined approach to achieving remediation and decommissioning goals. The SPA model removes the disjointed nature of the conventional model and ensures that any work conducted on a project is completely aligned with the client’s objective.
Unfortunately, accidents sometimes occur. When they do,
Resolve’s network of professionals can mobilise immediately
to be on site to manage and contain pollution and provide
clean up coordination. Resolve’s services include:
• Stakeholder liaison and management.
• Aiding in decision making.
• Rapid response to minimise pollutant migration.
• Advising on appropriate clean up actions.
• Providing direction to clean up contractors.
• Coordination of response to ensure environmental
clean up occurs to a suitable level using time and
cost effective methods.
With extensive experience in all facets of soil and waste management, Resolve has the capability to rapidly deliver cost effective waste management solutions for:
Resolve has developed strategic partnerships with soil and waste disposal facilities as well as licensed hazardous waste transporters, resulting in significant cost reductions for

Assessment of environmental risk and the quantification financial liabilities is one of the core strengths
of the Resolve team.
We have expertise in determining financial liability associated with short term assessment and remediation costs through to determining the liabilities associated with long term management and monitoring of contaminated sites.
Resolve can also help indemnify the owner of a contaminated site from future costs or claims through
the transfer of that environmental liability.
There are two primary mechanisms for the transfer of environmental liability:
1) Where the owner maintains ownership of the land, the
(completion of remediation, monitoring, attainment of Audit,
achieving acceptable risk levels).
and accepting of, environmental risk.
Transfer of environmental liability is the easiest and fastest way to eliminate your exposure to the unknowns of contaminated soil and groundwater risk. Please contact us to discuss how we can help eliminate your risk.
Asbestos containing-materials (ACM) were extensively
used within building, friction and other associated products
before their eventual prohibition on importation and use.
Exposure to asbestos remains prevalent within the built
environment, with a large percentage of asbestos remaining
fixed and installed.
In addition to above, asbestos in the form of debris
is frequently identified during infrastructure, landfill and
construction developments as a result of illegal disposal
and substandard removal methods. Due to the unknown
nature of these impacts within soils, fill and surface
materials the risk of exposure remains high if not
Other materials considered as hazardous, include Synthetic
Mineral Fibres, (SMF), Lead Paint (LP), Ozone Depleting
Substances (ODS) and Polychlorinated Biphenyl’s (PCB),
Combustible Wall Cladding Products (ACP and EPS).
ASBESTOS AND HAZARDOUS MATERIALS MANAGEMENT
In compliance with state and national regulations persons who 'manage' or 'control' a workplace have
the duty to identify and manage ACM. This generally comprises the engagement of a suitably qualified person to undertake onsite assessments and subsequent development of an ACM register. However, it remains the 'duty holders' responsibility to ensure all risks associated with ACM are suitably managed should their safe removal be impracticable.
