Improving the environmental impact for an energy infrastructure facility

Energy infrastructure is an essential facility for storing resources before they are transported to end-users. Cardno is successfully collaborating with our high-profile clients to help them meet their environmental regulatory framework.

Drawing upon our extensive knowledge, the Cardno Team provided environmental management services to our client’s energy infrastructure facility. Our scope of works included monitoring and management of groundwater and land quality plus providing expert advice on waste management, environmental compliance and soil assessment and classification.
