Site Mitigation Services
AEI provides full-service environmental site characterization, investigation, mitigation, and remediation services to address potential environmental concerns. Our national presence and regional expertise provides our clients with solutions from environmental due diligence through complete site mitigation, if needed, regardless of the site location.
Our licensed professionals maintain relationships with regional regulatory oversight agencies and are in touch with the latest local and regional regulatory requirements to help our client achieve their goals with respect to compliance and occupant health and safety.
Our national team of geologists, engineers, and scientists are informed about the most current sampling and remediation techniques to bring best-in-class problem-solving to complex environmental challenges. We leverage our expertise to help our clients meet their financing, development, risk management, or property management goals.
Site Investigation Methods and Management
Site investigations can determine the extent of environmental impacts, allowing for the design and implementation of appropriate mitigation or remediation methods if needed.
AEI stays on the leading edge of evolving investigation methods and environmental concerns through close contact with regulatory agencies and industry groups.
We consult with our clients to continuously develop the most budget- and schedule-friendly methods for assessment and mitigation. Subsurface investigations determine if there are significant environmental impacts that may warrant corrective action or remediation. These can include collecting soil vapor, soil, and/or groundwater samples at a property.
We compare data based on findings of a Phase II Subsurface Investigation, inclusive of any analytical testing, to applicable state and federal regulatory standards to determine:
- Any next steps required
- Likely associated costs to implement those steps
- Remediation scenarios that might apply to facilitate the close of the transaction
Subsurface investigations are frequently recommended for property types with the current and historical use of:
- Dry Cleaning Operations
- Circuit Board Manufacturing
- Printing Operations
- Manufacturing and Industrial Operations with Hazardous Materials or Petroleum Product Processes and Storage
- Gasoline Dispensing and Service Stations
- Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and Aboveground Storage Tanks (ASTs)
Mitigation, Remediation, and Risk Management
Once site investigations are completed and the extent of the impact has been characterized, AEI’s engineers, geologists, and scientists will mitigate the site conditions in alignment with the client’s goals and regulatory requirements.

Understanding the potential risks posed by environmental contamination is key to developing an appropriate response. AEI’s expert consultants use risk assessment methodologies in each and every project to understand any risks posed to human health or the environment.
Once the potential risk is understood, it will then be used to formulate the mitigation and/or remediation strategy, as well as any further investigative or exposure pathway analyses that may be required.
Vapor intrusion and vapor encroachment are the primary concerns at properties impacted with volatile organic chemicals, including petroleum from leaking underground storage tanks or pipelines, chlorinated solvents from dry cleaning facilities, and radon gas.
AEI’s experienced geologists and scientists perform vapor intrusion investigation studies at residential, commercial, and industrial properties on a daily basis. Vapor Intrusion studies typically involve sampling indoor and ambient air, soil vapor and/or groundwater.
If vapor intrusion or encroachment is found to be a concern, we are experienced at designing vapor mitigation systems for most existing and new buildings.
Solid/Hazardous Waste Program Management
Every business generates waste in some capacity. We work with our clients to ensure compliance, reduce waste, and maximize recycling.
AEI has waste management experts that can help with waste determination, permitting, waste disposition, and overall management of our clients’ solid, hazardous, biological, radiological, and universal waste programs.
