Keystone Environmental’s Biology Services evolved from our leading role in providing innovative mitigation/remediation strategies based on our Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment capabilities. In today’s business environment with ever-increasing environmental regulations, our Biological Services have allowed our clients to maximize the potential of their projects through appropriate environmental planning (e.g., stream-side protection, endangered species regulations, etc.).
Keystone Environmental continues to expand our ability to manage clients’ needs by further developing our biological capabilities. Using the same management strategy applied to other regulatory challenges, our Senior Biologists assemble project teams from our in-house biologists and field sampling technicians, and complement these teams with experts in specific fields from outside the company when and if the need arises. This approach allows us to tailor our services to each assignment for overall effectiveness and economy.
Our expertise with federal, provincial and regional environmental regulations and policies, combined with our experienced personnel enable us to provide high quality, comprehensive, and economical solutions for our clients.
