of skills that PacRim possesses, will help us maintain continuity
during the life of any contract without a gap in services or skill.
Project Support (Field Documentation): PacRim
has taken the lead in the local environmental industry, by designing
and implementing electronic field documentation forms for regulated
building materials surveys, daily logs, project oversight, work area
clearance, air monitoring, etc., Forms are prepared and stored on
the field technician’s company provided secure tablet or phone.
Copies of the electronic forms are also uploaded into our company’s
secure drive at the end of each shift, and for QA/QC purposes the
drive is checked daily to make sure completed paperwork has been
uploaded for each of the previous days’ projects. PacRim is
prepared to work with our clients to design electronic project
documentation forms to meet their needs and requirements.

quickly comes from the following approaches we utilize.

with the equipment needed to respond to regulated material incidents

in-house lab. Rushed samples can be moved to the front of
the queue for rapid results

projects to provide the best service to our clients and are
