Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Understanding how various elements within your business or facility work together is critical to effective environmental planning and execution.

Geographic information systems, commonly known as GIS, is a technology-driven framework for understanding complex relationships by geographically empowering your data to provide a means for gathering, harnessing, analyzing, and visualizing all data types and complexities within your organization to drive better decision-making and environmental problem-solving.

Using GIS, Stell will work with you to input, analyze, monitor, and report on all of your operational data to identify trends and potential problems before they arise, monitor changes, and forecast future conditions that will impact decision-making for your leadership.

Site Assessment

Before you build, upgrade, or sell your property, it is smart to conduct a thorough environmental site assessment to gain a better understanding of the potential environmental risks or benefits of the property and how those issues may affect your plans.

Stell helps you perform complete property due diligence throughout Phases 1, 2, and 3 of site assessment ASTM guideline requirements to ensure there are no hidden pitfalls that may not be obvious on the surface.


If contamination or other environmental conditions are identified at a property site, the first course of action is to remove or remedy the situation to reduce risk, preserve property values, and protect the health of your community and the environment.

Stell’s remedial support services offer a dedicated framework for resolving any potential risks or damages to a site through remedial investigation, feasibility studies, and pilot testing.

While we don’t perform remedial actions directly, we can definitely recommend high-quality local contractors for every need.

Regulatory Compliance

For every new project, there are a handful of critical laws and regulations that must be followed in order for your project to come to fruition. But, navigating those waters can be a little complicated, especially if you’re new to it.

Stell will quickly and efficiently guide you through the regulatory process to ensure that no stone is left unturned and your organization is in full compliance with mandated local, state, and federal regulations.

We’ll work with your in-house team and coordinate with necessary third-party entities to ensure compliance and help you avoid unnecessary risks or legal action.

Environmental Permitting

In this day and age, development requires a variety of permits, not the least of which is environmental permitting.

Whether it’s a simple local permit or a federal regulation like NEPA, our experts will help identify precisely which permits are needed based on the scope of work, ensure that the documentation is completed and filed properly, and assist you in maintaining compliance with any existing permits.
