Alan Snell serves as a Project Geologist and Manager of Hazardous Material Services for the firm. He is primarily responsible for overseeing Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) Inspections, Lead Inspections and Risk Assessments, Mold and Mold/Indoor Air Quality Assessments. Alan has a thorough understanding of environmental regulations, which allows him to evaluate site conditions and determine appropriate and effective solutions to environmental situations that arise during the property acquisition and/or redevelopment/renovation process.
Alan has more than 4 years of experience in a wide array of environmental services including hazardous material inspections, contaminant investigations, and due diligence services. He is focused on providing timely responses and practical solutions to clients in order to keep projects on track and under budget, always with the underlying objective of safeguarding public health. His specific project experience has included: over 100 asbestos inspections, over 40 lead inspections/risk assessments, and over 50 mold/indoor air quality assessments.
In addition to hazardous material assessments, Alan has extensive experience with contaminant investigation/remediation strategies and has overseen numerous underground storage tank removals. The strategies and removals were carefully designed and executed to meet the needs of our clients, satisfy State regulatory requirements, and increase the welfare of the natural environment.
When not conducting fieldwork, Alan occupies his time preparing technical reports, drafting figures using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), training new staff, and developing new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
