Qualitest is actively engaged in facilitating the application and review processes for projects within many regulatory environments.

Environmental Impact Assessment

Regulatory agencies typically require the proponent to submit an environmental impact assessment early in the project review process. Qualitest maintains a team of qualified professionals with expertise in conducting impact assessments for development projects. Impact assessments undertaken by Qualitest generally involve the documentation of vegetation, fish and wildlife resources sustained within, and in proximity to the proposed project, and the assessment of project-related impacts to these resources in a local and regional context.

Mitigation and Compensation

A key outcome of an environmental impact assessment is the identification of mitigation and compensation strategies that can adequately address adverse environmental impacts. Qualitest possesses a demonstrated expertise in development such strategies and designing mitigation and compensation habitats. Mitigation typically involves the avoidance or minimization of impacts through modification of the project design, and/or implementation of specific construction protocols. Compensation typically involves the restoration, enhancement or creation of resource features, such as fish and wildlife habitats, offset unmitigable adverse impacts.
