General Environmental Management Inc. is an integrated environmental services firm which provides enviroconstruction services, transportation, on-site field services and off-site treatment for both hazardous and non-hazardous materials for a variety of public and private entities.

One of the sectors that General Environmental provides services is in the area of enviroconstruction and brownfield support services. The company can “recycle” brownfield properties with environmental liabilities and turn them into useful real estate assets again. Construction activities that are to be carried out in areas with contaminated soils or in areas with industrial facilities where hazardous materials were used are extremely tricky.

Working in such brownfield areas requires a unique blend of specialized construction experience. This includes comprehensive understanding of complex technical and regulatory requirements associated with hazardous waste management, treatment, transportation and disposal. It also requires a large amount of planning, training and monitoring to protect not only the workers but also the surrounding environment and community.

The licensed contractors at General Environmental do have the necessary blend of skills to accomplish very specialized enviroconstruction services. Some of the enviroconstruction services that General Environmental provides include: containment, removal and disposal of spilled hazardous material; repackaging, transportation and disposal of drummed wastes; decontamination, demolition and closure of industrial facilities; cleaning and removal of underground and aboveground storage tanks; and excavation, treatment and/or disposal of contaminated sludge, soil and concrete.

Once this work is done, the company’s proprietary web-based data management software (GEMWare) can provide clients and regulators detailed records of waste shipments and final disposition of hazardous materials.

General Environmental has a track record of successfully accomplishing difficult and very specialized enviroconstruction services. Examples of the company’s expertise include large-scale contaminated soil removal and barge transport projects in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands and the decontamination and demolition of a southern California locomotive chrome plating facility while protecting an adjacent elementary school and community from chromium exposure.
