HAIL Environmental is a site contamination specialist consultancy, covering all areas of that practice, including site investigations (PSI and DSI), risk assessment, remedial options assessment, remediation and validation, technical review, due diligence, portfolio screening, and policy development.
HAIL Environmental was founded by Brendon Love in 2014 to provide contaminated site specialist services to the Bay of Plenty. Bay of Plenty Regional Council immediately contracted him as project manager of our flagship project, the $21M Kopeopeo Canal remediation in Whakatāne. Shortly following completion the success of this project was acknowledged through winning several Australian Land and Groundwater Association (ALGA) project excellence awards and the SOLGM local government award for community engagement. In 2016 Brendon was joined by the core of the current company, extending coverage across the North Island and the top of the South. Since then we have added two further regional providers and won places on central government panels.
Our organizational values are environmental responsibility, business agility and technical excellence. Our points of difference include a majority of certified staff, an office-free regional business model, and a commitment to sustainable remediation. In 2020 our entry for the Wharenui Rise Development won the Sustainable Remediation Project Award (ALGA Project Excellence 2020).
HAIL Environmental has site contamination specialists in Auckland, the Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay, Wellington and Canterbury. We do not have physical offices: all our consultants work from home. All our specialists hold, or are applying for, Certified Environmental Practitioner – Site Contamination specialist status (CEnvP-SC). Collectively, we have comprehensive experience of the contaminated land sector: at least one of us has worked on sites in every one of the 51 categories of the Hazardous Activities and Industries List, and in every region of New Zealand.
If you have a contaminated site issue and want to experience the difference that HAIL Environmental can bring to your project please contact Brendon or one of our regional consultants.
