Just Another Day At The Office

SoundEarth offers an entire team boasting expertise in working with marine and freshwater sediments, contaminated sediment dredging, and piling repair and replacement. We provide remedial investigations and sediment management to help our clients navigate tight project timelines and complicated regulatory permitting requirements.

Here we have a very hardy SoundEarth team member (in the yellow safety jacket) who took this time-lapse video while working at a dredging site in Eastern Washington. Our team worked with a diver to acquire sediment samples which were logged for this particular scope of work.

Our very own Ryan Bixby, LG served as a Program Co-Chair for this seminar which was put on by The Seminar Group and sponsored by Northwest Resource Law PLLC and SoundEarth Strategies, Inc. This program focused on the real estate market in Seattle and how there has been such an increase in demand that properties previously deemed as upside down, or experiencing negative equity, are now in a perfect position to be developed as property prices continue to rise. 

Ryan helped kick-off the event by contributing to the introduction and overview, and later giving a more in-depth presentation about Evolving Stormwater Discharge Requirements in King County and Their Impact on Redevelopment. The other topics of the day were related to Construction, Finance, Environmental, Government, Insurance, Investment, Land Use, Professional Liability, Toxic Waste, and Waste Water—all of which were presented by attorneys, other consultants, and members of regulatory institutions.
