Environmental

We love the environment and we understand that businesses have budgets and schedules. As your trusted advisor, we identify project liabilities as well as opportunities, and design positive outcomes for both you and the environment. Our biologists, engineers, and geologists are thoughtful, candid, and creative professionals that put service above all else.

Environmental Due Diligence

Seasoned buyers of real estate take due diligence seriously. AMI will help you identify the liabilities and opportunities associated with the known and potential environmental conditions at a property. We will quantify your risk and coach you through environmental contract negotiations to get the best deal possible.

Compliance & Permitting

AMI understands environmental regulations and how they affect each phase of your project. We know that securing a permit that is tailored to your project is essential to maintain your operating schedule and maximize profit. We have experience monitoring in-field conditions and proactively working ahead to prevent costly delays. We have been there before and can help you navigate through the regulatory requirements and mitigate your project risks.

Surface Water & Sediment Assessments

AMI has marine engineers and divers, a vibratory sampling rig, and environmental staff that are passionate about water and sediment projects. We even built our corporate office on the shore of the Duluth-Superior Harbor so we can operate out of our own marina. Let’s sit down and discuss an assessment program that fits your budget and technical needs.

Environmental & Nepa Reviews

Projects that require public environmental review put you squarely in the public eye. Allow us to help you achieve project approval by thoughtful pre-project planning and siting, preparation of concise environmental review documents, and organized coordination of stakeholder involvement.

Industrial Cleaning & Remediation

AMI maintains a large number of staff with 40-hour HAZWOPER certifications who are supported by technical and safety experts as well as equipment operators. We can both prepare and implement work plans related to spills, legacy soil or sediment contamination, mold and methamphetamine contaminated housing, and other industrial contaminants. Additionally, excavation services can be provided by our sister company Nordic Group who is a service disabled veteran-owned company.

Brownfield & Real Estate Development

Brownfield projects can be unpredictable even after a substantial amount of environmental assessment. Projects with State and Federal funding sources are often further complicated by additional public reviews and scheduling. Get AMI involved in your project early and we can remove much of the risk, engineer solutions to solve those Brownfield challenges, and stretch your budget further than expected.

Storm Water Plans (NPDES / SWPPP)

Storm water regulations have been expanded to provide additional protections to our valuable surface water resources. AMI will design your construction or industrial storm water pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) to be effective, feasible, and flexible. Then, AMI will work closely with you and provide on-site training and inspection so your storm water program will remain in compliance.
