MITIGATING ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS
At Golder Associates, we have created a company that works with clients from project inception through closure. This issue of Technically Speaking focuses on our work that helps mitigate environmental impacts. Typically, the practice of
mitigating environmental impacts is done at the end of the useful life of a
project – such as what is described in the article on our work with Harland
and Wolff, the famed builder of the "unsinkable" RMS Titanic luxury cruise liner. However, through more than 46 years of experience, we have learned that it can be more effective to consider potential environmental impacts at the front end of a project when we, on behalf of our clients, have the ability to design for the full productive lifecycle of a project. Hence, several of the projects featured in this issue describe our work at the very front end of a variety of developments including gold, coal and oil sands mines; a roadway; a port; and a chemical plant.
