Response Services

Pinnacle Engineering recognizes the challenges faced by businesses in a rapidly evolving environmental response-based incident. Pinnacle functions as an extension of our client’s teams during these unpredictable events. We provide 24/7 response by qualified and experienced staff. Our team of responders, engineers, and scientists are quick to assess your situation and work to develop a “Common Operating Picture” that guides response efforts.

Our goal is to continue to build upon our reputation of delivering high-quality services, maintaining open and responsive communications, and providing cost-effective solutions that consistently meet our client’s needs.

Our services range from response management to environmental site assessments and consulting services. We coordinate clean-up efforts and serve as a regulatory interface. Even after the emergency is over, we continue to provide project management, remediation, and hazardous waste management services until the site is fully remediated.

At the core of our mission is to enhance the relationship between your business and its environment. Our assessments encompass a wide range of factors, including threatened and endangered species, wetlands, waterways, soil, and other areas that require restoration expertise. With comprehensive knowledge of Fate and Transport modeling of environmental contaminants, NRDA support, SCAT (shoreline cleanup and assessment), and mass balance calculation methodologies, Pinnacle offers robust support throughout the entirety of the incident.

When it comes to environmental emergencies, obtaining the necessary permits is crucial. We provide highly focused assistance to our clients in securing permits for air, water, and waste management during emergencies. Leveraging our rapid response capabilities and in-depth understanding of permit requirements, we efficiently prepare the requisite documents and collaborate with regulatory bodies, ensuring prompt and accurate permit acquisition.

We specialize in conducting comprehensive sampling of diverse environmental media, encompassing surface water, soil, air, groundwater, and waste. Our technical expertise in sampling collection and analysis ensures the delivery of accurate and reliable data. With extensive experience in developing sampling plans, employing effective methods and preservation techniques.

Since 2017, Pinnacle Engineering has been providing emergency response and remedial field services at our outset and has met the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Oil Spill Removal Organization (OSRO) Classification Guidelines. Continually meeting and complying with these guidelines demonstrates our commitment to our clients in providing emergency response services that meet their needs.

Our services range from 24/7 response readiness, FRP Preparation, GRP Response Plans, Exercise Development, Site-Specific Training, Environmental Engineering, Investigation & Remediation, and UAS Services.

Pinnacle takes pride in being the first on-scene and the last to leave after site restorations have been completed. Our team is skilled in dealing with regulatory agencies, landowners and communities that have been impacted by these types of events. Pinnacle’s knowledge, expertise, and experiences ensure our client’s best interests are represented while also working towards the health and safety of those impacted.

Site logistics management is another area of our expertise. We excel in financial management, resource procurement, materials management, subcontractor management, and essential resource acquisition. The extensive experience of our team ensures streamlined operations during emergency response situations. We go beyond simply completing the job at hand – we ensure that you are well-prepared and positioned for long-term success, mitigating any potential impacts long after the emergency has been resolved.

Our waste management services include handling, characterization, profiling, transportation, and disposal. We prioritize waste minimization, sustainability, and recycling options whenever viable. Moreover, we actively explore opportunities for beneficial reuse, reducing the overall environmental impact.
