SJR Environmental Consulting Services
Environmental consulting and engineering firm
For all the potential roadblocks big construction jobs run into, the worst of all are those which harm the environment.
Get that job back on track and completed, and do you part for the Earth in the meantime. Get on board with SJR Environmental Consulting!
There’s only one Earth – and we need to protect it.
The reality is that as everyday consumers, we’re doing a pretty solid job of protecting the environment in recent years. The increasing availability of recycling, the decreased use of agricultural pesticides, and the advent of zero-emissions vehicles are just a few recent advances we’ve made in environmental conservation. However, similar positive impact has yet to be realized on the business end. Companies large and small, namely, those in construction, demolition, and development, face a number of environmental dilemmas and potential liabilities – and are struggling to uncover sound solutions. Chemical construction materials and certain construction processes are the main culprits; leading to asbestos, solvents, petroleum, and other contaminating emissions.
While these unfortunate results are often difficult to avoid, their presence is putting a huge damper on many projects. Proof of non-contamination is required by law in order to proceed with construction, demolition, and rehabilitation projects; and banks won’t put out loans without it. In Colorado, these regulations are up to ten times more stringent. With the US economy turning, construction and redevelopment are booming – and the industry is again becoming a significant economic contributor. Almost 6 million nationwide jobs are at stake – it’s time for some sound environmental solutions that businesses can truly benefit from.
We’re here for businesses – and here for the Earth.
Introducing SJR Environmental Consulting (SJRE): an environmental consulting and engineering firm and one-stop shop for property owners and developers of all kinds seeking environmental compliance. Our investigation, characterization, and compliance services solve environmental dilemmas while still adhering to local, state, and federal regulations.
Nearly two centuries of combined project management experience helps us ensure our clients receive the industry standard in service and solutions. We save you money, save you time, and get you back to building an environmentally-friendly project. And, it doesn’t hurt that we’re located in Denver, Colorado – the #1 building market in the country.
Aside from offering fully-compliant solutions and expert levels of customer service, we’ve got a number of other things going for us. SJRE is certified with multiple minority and disadvantaged small business certifications, including MBE, WBE, and DBE.
These marks don’t just give us a competitive advantage; they also open the doors for a huge uptick in business through our upcoming 8(a) Federal Certification. This highly beneficial Federal classification helps smaller, younger, less-advantaged businesses like ours compete in the federal realm. Under it, we will have first crack at a number of set-aside large scale jobs.
Our approaches are second-to-none, our prices are competitive, and our product is turnkey. We’re a true one-stop shop, offering over 15 separate services to our valued enterprise customers. Here are a few of the most popular:
Clients engage with us during the planning of upcoming projects and again during pre-construction. Our simplified consulting process starts with a detailed site analysis and investigation, during which we identify any and all Industrial Hygiene dilemmas. After pinpointing the contamination, we continue monitoring during and after the cleanup process and can provide ongoing engineering services throughout your entire project.
We’ve been in business since late 2011 – with a clearly-defined vision of helping our clients and improving the environment. Since then, we’ve grown our staff size from 2 to 40, won many high-profile projects around the Denver area, and turned a profit. We’ve also begun to compete with the top players in the industry. There have been many milestones during our company’s short life; here are a handful of the most prominent:
