From the supply of drinking water from our natural resources to the discharge of wastewater and runoff, water management holds an important place for our regions in the planning of services to their population and the development of their territory, in a public health, environmental and asset management context.

At Roy Consultants, we believe it is essential that water management be aimed at ensuring the security of the supply of good quality drinking water, more specifically by preventing contamination. Water is an asset from which our communities benefit greatly. In order to continue to enjoy good quality drinking water in sufficient volumes and to allow future generations to have access to the same, as a basis for their development, we are responsible for doing everything possible to ensure its sustainability.

Our team offers planning, design and project management services related to the supply, treatment, storage and distribution of drinking water, collection and treatment of wastewater, as well as the management of runoffs, including those with low impact.

Edit

Although rarely seen as such, road networks are brilliant works of civil engineering. Whatever their size, they constitute a vital infrastructure for the socio-economic growth of any region by connecting places and communities separated by great distances or rivers. They must be designed taking into account climatic, geographic, topographical and financial realities, and comply with environmental and public safety requirements.

Thanks to its multidisciplinary structure, Roy Consultants has the expertise to meet these requirements. Our team offers the services of environmental impact studies, route planning and traffic studies, as well as the design and management of projects related to the construction or repair of roads, streets, intersections, road infrastructures, bicycle lanes, urban developments, drainage infrastructures, culverts, bridges and signalling and lighting systems.

Airports are essential infrastructures in the socio-economic development of a region and constitute an important means in bringing communities together. Maintaining airport infrastructure is therefore essential in order to meet the needs of carriers, the expectations of users and the constant evolution of the aviation industry. Like any construction intervention, airport infrastructure projects must be designed and carried out in conformance with environment and safety requirements, while respecting neighbouring populations.

For the past several decades, airport management has been the responsibility of airport authorities. This approach has allowed Roy Consultants to develop a solid relationship with New Brunswick authorities who manage regional airports by carrying out projects of various sizes and complexities. Our team offers planning, design and project management services specifically related to the construction and repair of runways, taxiways, aprons, maneuver areas, airport terminals and service buildings.

Port and coastal infrastructures play an essential role in the economic and social life of our regions. By their layout, they protect coastal communities and provide access for the transport of goods and the exploitation of natural resources by sea. Whatever their size, they must consider climatic, geographical and topographical realities, and conform to safety and environmental protection requirements.

In the face of this technical and financial challenge, Roy Consultants offers the services of environmental impact studies, condition assessments, as well as planning, design and management of projects related to coastal protection, dykes and riprap, water intake and discharge structures, dredging works and service and support infrastructure.

Roy Consultants advocates an environmentally respectful waste management approach that meets the requirements of environmental laws and minimizes the effects on human health as well as the impact on flora and fauna.

In this regard, our team assists regional service commissions and heavy industries in the planning, design and management of solid waste landfill development projects (i.e. domestic waste, wood residue and ash). For decades, we have carried out engineering mandates related, among others, to the construction and closure of landfill cells, the recovery of biogas, the management of leachate and surface water, as well as the construction of service infrastructure and operational support.

Environment, Soils And Materials

Protection and Enhancement of the Environment

Committed to the protection and enhancement of the environment, Roy Consultants’ services adapt to the various environmental challenges or problems encountered by our wide range of clients. Through environmental assessments as well as planning, design and management of site rehabilitation projects, our team aims to maintain a healthy, clean and sustainable living environment in compliance with laws and regulations regarding the protection of the environment.

While environmental engineering ensures the conservation of ecology and sustainable development, geotechnical engineering focuses on the implementation of the subsoil in the construction of works, the exploitation of natural resources, groundwater management and prevention of natural risks. It deals with the interaction between soils and structures, as well as the phenomena of soil movement, deformation and resistance. Roy Consultants invests in this by offering engineering services in soil mechanics, materials testing and material quality control, which constitutes a special sphere of civil engineering that complements our range of multidisciplinary expertise.

Edit

Climate change, loss of biodiversity, pollution and the unsustainable exploitation of natural resources are among the most pressing regional issues of the day. They require an understanding of the impacts of human activity on natural cycles, ecosystems, species and topography in order to create a more sustainable future for our communities.

Roy Consultants determines and assesses the environmental impact risks of a project and, if applicable, establishes the measures that can be adopted to counter the negative environmental effects or mitigate them. Our team of engineers and environmental specialists has the skills and technical experience to support clients in the planning process and obtain applicable municipal, provincial or federal environmental approvals and permits.

Specialized services offered in the environmental field include applications for environmental permits such as watercourse and wetland modification, approvals to operate, wastewater system approvals, provincial environmental impact assessments, Fisheries Act authorizations and federal impact assessments. Our professionals also specialize in the development of environmental mitigation measures, environmental protection and management plans, and exemption requests for watershed designated areas and wells.

Edit

An essential step of due diligence in acquiring a commercial property or completing a capital project is the characterization and environmental assessment of the site. This is a proactive and preventative approach to asset and environmental management. It allows to verify whether, and to what extent, the soil or groundwater is contaminated or to detect the presence in buildings of mould or products harmful to health. Where applicable, the management and remediation of contaminated sites must be carried out in compliance with environmental protection laws and regulations.

Roy Consultants favours an approach that aims to support clients and the participation of authorities and stakeholders in decision-making. In this context, our team of engineers and environmental specialists develops and implements acceptable solutions that take into account the project’s social, environmental and economic aspects.

Specialized services offered in the environmental field include supervision of emergency response to spills, assessment and remediation of spills, environmental site assessments (phases I, II and III), remediation of contaminated sites, brownfield redevelopment, wetland delineation and rare plants, migratory birds and wildlife surveys. They also include water source assessments, hydrogeological assessments, aquatic habitat assessments, water and sediment quality assessments, air quality assessments, hazardous materials surveys and soil suitability analysis.

Edit

Understanding the soils’ behaviour and the impact of groundwater tables on the design and execution of structures is essential preparatory work of any construction project.

Roy Consultants employs proven field testing techniques and advanced laboratory technologies to collect soil, aggregate and groundwater samples and data, and determine site conditions. Our geotechnical specialists therefore work with project planners as well as civil and structural designers to ensure adequate risk management, depending on the particularities of the terrain, in establishing construction methods. They normally remain engaged in the construction phase of projects, particularly during the completion of excavation and backfill work. This approach ensures better monitoring of projects and promotes an interdisciplinary approach necessary to their successful completion.

Among the specialized services offered in the field of soil mechanics are surveys by drilling, tests on soils, aggregates and rock, evaluations and recommendations of foundations (deep and shallow), slope stability analysis and soil frost behaviour analysis.

Edit

Control of the materials used in structures constitutes an essential verification of conformity at the start of any construction project. It validates compliance with industry standards and technical requirements specified by project designers in order to ensure sustainable infrastructure and building construction.

Roy Consultants has the skills and job site experience required to perform any specialized testing on the materials required during construction. Our geotechnical team performs various quality planning, quality control (QC), quality assurance (QA) and quality improvement activities. Our range of services includes the verification of borrow sources, density tests as well as sampling and various compliance tests (in laboratory and on site) on soils, aggregates, cement concrete and asphalt concrete.
