Highlands Environmental Solutions Announces Staff Expansion

(Raleigh, N.C.) Highlands Environmental Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of environmental services in the Southeast, is expanding their presence in the Triangle to meet the growing need for their solutions-based approach to environmental remediation. Highlands has just added three experienced professionals to the team and has signed a lease to double their office space in the newly renovated North Quarter Office Park in north Raleigh.

Highlands Environmental Solutions creates cost-effective geologic and environmental solutions for a range of environmental needs. Highlands specializes in routine land assessments, such as Phase I/II studies needed in commercial real estate transactions, remediation of contaminated water and soil, and emergency response to fuel and chemical spills. The Highlands team works with a diverse group of industries including insurance companies, commercial real estate developers and attorneys, mining and aggregate corporations, transportation providers, and retail petroleum outlets.

“We’re seeing a terrific response to our solutions-based approach,” said Joe Beaman, president of Highlands Environmental Solutions. “Insurance companies, commercial real estate developers, attorneys often want to see their environmental problems solved and stamped ‘case closed’ and in many cases this can be accomplished in a cost effective manner. We work with state and federal regulators to make sure that challenges are met and addressed – and not turned into costly, long term monitoring or ‘science’ projects.”
