Delivering high-quality engineering and industrial hygiene solutions
NORTECH, Inc. office

or NORTECH, Inc., the phrase “Engineering Solutions to Keep Alaska Beautiful and Alaskans Safe” is more than just a slogan. This embodies the essence of the value the firm generates throughout the state. NORTECH, Inc. provides environmental engineering, industrial hygiene, and hazardous materials management solutions that help organizations maintain functional, safe, and healthy conditions.

NORTECH, Inc. has been serving public- and privatesector clients since 1979, when it was originally founded by John Hargesheimer, PE, CIH, currently a senior consultant. Led today by Peter Beardsley, PE, and Jason Ginter, PMP, the company has offices in Fairbanks, Juneau, and Anchorage and a multidisciplinary staff fulfilling its mission: “providing the highest-quality environmental engineering and industrial hygiene solutions.”

While environmental remediation is a core service, NORTECH, Inc. also focuses on helping clients avoid expensive, catastrophic spills. Its certified tank inspectors provide a broad range of pollution prevention services. “We can develop plans for tank replacement and provide professional services that support the continued storage of petroleum products at commercial facilities,” says Beardsley, the Principal-in-Charge of NORTECH, Inc.

The professional engineers and certified industrial hygienists at NORTECH, Inc. excel at translating complex technical information into understandable concepts for multiple audiences. They also customize innovative solutions for challenging projects. For example, in Juneau, the firm used a robotic system to inspect diesel tanks, avoiding the need to have them drained and cleaned first.

As another inventive project, NORTECH, Inc. assisted the US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement with revising its spill-cleanup models. This data—which had not been updated since the ‘90s—is crucial for pollution prevention planning. “We researched most of the major contingency plans on the North Slope and interviewed many of the long-term operators and agencies,” Beardsley explains. “We reviewed the state and federal clean up guidance documents and assembled that into a webbased calculator.”

NORTECH’s professional team includes environmental and civil engineers, chemists, industrial hygienists, and environmental specialists who collaborate to ensure clients receive cost-effective and sustainable solutions. Having decades of experience with projects in more than 200 communities, they understand the challenges of Alaska’s environment and are well qualified to meet clients’ project needs and evolving regulatory requirements. “We focus on always trying to increase our institutional knowledge and develop instate talent so that we can be a strong presence in the environmental engineering field,” says Haley Michael, PE, who manages the firm’s Anchorage office.

Recently, NORTECH, Inc. remodeled the Anchorage office to enhance its capabilities. The renovation allows staff to manage equipment and collaborate more effectively, improving workflow and efficiency. “It will make the office more functional so that we can service our clients better,” Michael says.

Throughout Alaska, NORTECH’s clients can count on receiving pragmatic outcomes derived from diverse expertise and perspectives. “In each of the areas that NORTECH, Inc. does business, we bring engineering experience that provides professional interpretation and insight,” Beardsley says. “This results in the highest quality solutions.”

In the end, the value is in more than just technical analysis; it’s in safeguarding Alaska’s beauty and its people.
