Shaw has an exceptional record of providing rapid response environmental protection services in emergency scenarios, including cleanup and assessments in natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and earthquakes, as well as responses to transportation accidents, facility disasters, refinery spills and releases, and train derailments. Contaminants removed have included oil, petroleum products, toxic substances and extremely hazardous materials such as radioactive contaminants and biological/chemical warfare products. Shaw was one of the first environmental remediation and restoration firms capable of providing comprehensive technical services necessary for handling high-hazard materials.

Using our engineering, design, and construction expertise, we work with our clients to:

  • Remediate contamination and restore land to a usable state
  • Safely dispose of hazardous and toxic waste, including high-level waste
  • Develop modern solid waste landfills and transfer stations
  • Keep the air and water contaminant-free
  • Respond quickly and efficiently to emergency situations

We have conducted hundreds of site selection, characterization, evaluation, and monitoring studies; prepared conceptual and detailed engineering designs for air emission control and noise control; performed cleanup of high-level hazardous and toxic waste, including biological weapons; designed hundreds of sanitary landfills and landfill gas control and recovery systems; provided management consulting services; prepared environmental permit applications, compliance documents, and impact assessments for hundreds of projects; and completed discipline-specific or multidisciplinary projects throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Shaw's broad experience and multidisciplinary approach provide the expertise and flexibility to meet all environmental project needs.
