How We Do It: Roadmap to Monetization
A key element of the COLUMBIA Technologies Way is aligning previous history and future objectives with the data-supported current state. So for every site, we begin by learning your monetization goals, as well as investments you have already made.
Working closely with your business and engineering leadership, we develop a very specific joint scope of work (SOW), focused on achieving environmentally responsible results. This asset-specific roadmap to monetization addresses timeframes, investment criteria and the human and technology resources available to meet your goals. Plus, it provides the framework in which we can become your trusted partner in formulating smarter sustainable solutions.
In successful site restoration, there is no substitute for experience. At COLUMBIA Technologies, we have experience you can trust. Since 1999, our technical staff of experienced geologist, chemists, and engineers who thoroughly understand high-resolution site characterization have performed over 1,500 high-resolution site evaluations at environmentally challenged sites worldwide: throughout the United States, and in Canada, Mexico and Brazil and Australia.
Our 300-plus customers include 20 of the world’s top environmental design firms, Global 500 companies, numerous U.S. state and federal agencies. COLUMBIA Tech has developed collaborative partnerships with:
- Global corporations with complex environmentally contaminated real estate
- Large manufacturing companies
- Army, Navy, Air Force and other Department of Defense sites
- Federal agencies involved in large, complex cleanup challenges
- State agencies that oversee underground storage tank (UST) and dry cleaner cleanup programs
- Large petroleum companies
- Railroad corporations
- Environmental consultants/integrators that provide strategic and technical assistance to State and Federal cleanup programs.
As large companies, already global in scale, establish operations in more and more countries, they increase their likelihood of becoming responsible for management and remediation of environmentally contaminated real estate. Businesses confronting that challenge need a collaborative partner with proven experience in applying science, technology, data best practices and engineering to achieve the best, most sustainable outcome.
At COLUMBIA Technologies, our solutions are tailor-made for helping global corporations reduce the risk, uncertainty and costs of contaminated land cleanup and restoration. Our knowledgeable and highly adaptable global direct sensing team has successfully performed more than 1,500 high-resolution site evaluations worldwide. Moreover, with our international footprint now spanning four continents —with projects complete or underway in Italy, Japan, Australia, Canada, Mexico and Brazil — we can assist customers nearly anywhere in the world.
We’re ready to do whatever it takes to best serve our customers, wherever they are. In Brazil, for example, we have established our wholly-owned subsidiary company, COLUMBIA Technologies do Brasil Ltda in partnership with ARAGON Perfuracoes e Sondagens of Sao Paulo. In Mexico, we partner with International Products & Organic Solutions (IPOS) of Mexico City, to perform complex environmental site investigations for industrial companies and manufacturers. These successful partnership are representative of our global collaborations with qualified service providers in our customers’ countries.
Our award-winning SmartData Solutions real-time, cloud-based platform provides for the quality assurance and cost-effective collaboration for technical teams across multiple continents. In fact, in today’s increasingly connected world, the only way we at COLUMBIA Technologies can advance the adoption of sustainable practices on a global scale is through collaboration and the sharing of expertise to serve international corporations wherever they are, transfer technology to local providers and improve economic conditions with environmentally sound solutions.
Truly global in reach, COLUMBIA works with collaborative partners worldwide to serve international corporations wherever they are, transfer technology to local providers and improve economic conditions with environmentally sustainable solutions.
