Environmental Studies

To ensure that the impact of any construction project on the environment is minimal, it is crucial to conduct in-depth environmental studies and analyses. Natural environments, including water quality, sediment, vegetation, soil, and wildlife habitats, must be protected at all times. The preservation of our ecosystems is at stake.

Working Without Impacting the Environment

With today's ever-changing environment, it is difficult to keep track of each step that goes into ensuring that a construction project is safe and sustainable. Regulations, environmental constraints, and municipal and provincial permits are just a few of the things you need to consider.

CIMA+'s experts can help. They are the experts in environment, from biology to flora and fauna. They know how to help you protect the natural environment during your project, so you are 100% compliant.
