Asset Maintenance Management Systems (AMMS)

Utilities use AMMS and integrated GIS system mapping to collect and house current data in a centralized system and perform analyses on these data for sound decision making and reporting. Sewall offers low-cost solutions to assist them in meeting their maintenance needs, including:

  • Consulting services
  • Workflow assessments
  • Software selection
  • GIS integration
  • Standardizing and georeferencing asset data in a centralized repository

Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)

Sewall’s environmental professionals have decades of experience completing ESAs for greenfield, brownfield, and commercial development sites. Our ESAs are compliant with current ASTM and US EPA All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) standards. Sewall also has demonstrated experience performing Phase II subsurface investigations, and developing and implementing remediation programs for underground storage tank (UST), industrial and other brownfield sites.
