Environmental regulations can be complicated, difficult to understand, and challenging to know where to start. There are many different components in regulations that include everything from the air quality inside a property to the soil quality below the structure. All of these issues could be a significant factor in your overall health and safety. AirQuest’s environmental consulting services make the process of identifying, managing, and planning for solutions to these concerns much easier. We are here to help you understand your situation and support you with materials that comply with regulations across the state standard in a way that suits your needs.

With exceptionally skilled staff experienced in both private and public sector work, our team has the expertise needed to determine which services are most suited to all unique situations. Evaluation and implementation of environmental remedial and compliance solutions can require a wide array of specialized services. That’s why we provide our clients with access to a wide range of environmental solutions including:
Phase I & II Environmental Site Assessments (ESA)
Need to know where to begin? This is the first stage of identifying environmental hazards and determining what solutions may be needed. Our ESA assessments align with the current American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for evaluating potential environmental risk. Additionally, we incorporate the voluntary evaluation of potential vapor intrusion into structures. Depending on the outcome of these assessments, additional investigations may be necessary.
The first phase takes place via inspection of a property to check for any environmental concerns which may be present. This inspection is to protect innocent buyers from cleanup liabilities, as well as to provide a baseline of environmental data to assist management companies. The goal is to recognize any environmental conditions or hazardous materials.
The second phase is based on the findings from phase I. Sample collecting and laboratory testing are done to confirm the presence of hazardous materials. At AirQuest, we have experience in assessing a wide range of possible contaminants, including those that may be unidentifiable.
Soil & Groundwater Testing
Soil and groundwater testing are done as part of Phase II of the ESA, but it is a service we also provide independently. Like the above assessments, the goal is to identify contaminants and potential risks for subsurface on a property. It’s useful for any property that seeks to utilize or drastically chance its groundwater or soil in any way. Aside from identifying contaminants and concerns, this also includes forming plans for management, mitigation, health, and safety based on the results.
Contamination Assessment & Remediation
We perform a thorough examination of the property to determine the extent of the environmental impacts of any contaminant and follow up with plans for remediation and restoration treatments, if applicable. Our experienced interdisciplinary team performs assessments, remediation design, and can provide restoration treatment counseling for contaminated sites.
In the past, we’ve dealt with sites contaminated by agro-chemicals, vehicle fuels, cleaning solvents, hazardous materials, and unknown contaminants. Solving contamination problems requires the right treatment methods, which is why we specialize in arranging a wide range of solutions, as well as alternative treatment systems that meet remediation objectives. This includes services such as:
- Sub-Slab Depressurization
- Land Farming
- Vacuum Extraction
- Soil Venting
- & Many Others.
These remediation and restoration projects intend to achieve reasonable cleanup levels that are satisfactory with human safety as well as with all legal requirements. Additionally, we like our solutions to incorporate green and sustainable concepts. Together, these efforts combined are to appeal to the interests of stakeholders, the environment, and the Florida community.
Hazardous Waste Management
Managing hazardous waste can be a complicated process involving high regulatory standards, safety concerns, and applied science. We aim to make the process easier by managing the various areas of concern that may apply. Of vital importance to any waste management plan are the safety and sensibilities of the local community where the waste is present. AirQuest provides a range of services in this regard, including, but not limited to:
