As part of our international business consultancy practice, Geosyntec provides unique advisory services that combine our knowledge on global transactions and environmental services with our local presence.

As an independent third party with experience built on our internationally renowned engineering and scientific expertise, our practitioners can provide unbiased, objective advice that applies real-world, market-tested knowledge of project risk and return in the context of competitive, regulatory, cost, and demand drivers.

Our services provide private investors, sponsors, owners, and lenders the assurances they seek for their business and commercial activities as they acquire, divest, and develop assets. The complex nature of these transactions magnifies the need for the comprehensive technical and commercial assessments that Geosyntec CAT practitioners can provide under a single entity.

Through our strategic and transactional advice and lifecycle asset management, our services span pre-transaction technical, environmental, and financial due diligence to asset retirement. The broad range of asset classes include:

  • Transportation infrastructure
  • Geoenvironmental containment and waste management
  • Energy generation and distribution
  • Water and wastewater
  • Oil and gas
  • Renewable energy technology
  • Real property

As an integral member of a client transactional due diligence or asset advisory team, we offer exceptional depth of talent and experience in identifying opportunities for value creation in the face of uncertainty and quantifying environmental, geotechnical, and catastrophic operational risks. Our clients have access to the top practitioners in the fields of environmental resource management, remediation, engineering, and computational dynamics that allow us to deliver an unprecedented level of expertise to any project or transaction. We specialize in rapid turnaround, efficient delivery, and independent representation. Geosyntec CAT practitioners are committed to client service and technical excellence.
