Brownfields Redevelopment

WE PROVIDED PERSONALIZED STRATEGIES AND USE CUTTING-EDGE METHODS TO CLEAN UP ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINATION. OUR METHOD RETURNS BLIGHTED PROPERTIES TO FULL MARKET VALUE. A PROPERTY WITH NO LIABILITIES PROVIDES MORE OPTIONS FOR REDEVELOPMENT.  

Communities across the country have abandoned industrial and commercial properties–from old manufacturing buildings, metal platers, and oil distributors to dry cleaners and gas stations– impacted by environmental contamination and economic challenges. Redeveloping blighted, underutilized, and contaminated properties while protecting public health and improving the environment, returns the property to productive use for the community and an improved tax-base for the municipality.

A successful Brownfields redevelopment project comes down to whom you use as your environmental consultant, their ability to secure additional funding, and their engagement with key players and stakeholders. From due diligence to redevelopment, we manage all aspects of the environmental cleanup to ensure your goals are achieved. Our specialty services provide a less costly way to clean up and redevelop. 

Services

ENVIRONMENTAL INVESTIGATION AND REMEDIATION
We conduct the environmental investigation and remediation activities necessary to clean up properties by determining the extent of environmental contamination and implementing cost-effective solutions to obtain regulatory closure. 

REAL ESTATE DUE DILIGENCE
We conduct real estate due diligence to assess the property, determine the extent of contamination, evaluate the source of the contamination, determine the likelihood of liabilities, and develop cost estimates to clean up the property. We also develop strategies to resolve environmental liability while maximizing asset value.

PROPERTY REDEVELOPMENT SUPPORT
We provide property development support by working with property owners, buyers, city officials, and developers to obtain zoning permits, variances, and entitlements necessary to redevelop the subject properties, as well as, provide assistance in obtaining tax credit financing and grants that may be required to make the project viable. 

ENVIRONMENTAL FUNDING
We evaluate environmental funding opportunities for financing the environmental cleanup. We do this by searching for old CGL insurance policies that can be used to pay for environmental investigation, remediation, and legal fees; and by identifying, applying for, and managing local, State, and Federal funding sources to supplement historical insurance coverage. 

What Our Clients Say 

“We contacted EnviroForensics to address lingering environmental concerns for a city-owned property slated for redevelopment as a multi-tenant residential use. EnviroForensics proactively communicated with the developer and us to address the environmental impacts in a manner that ensured our redevelopment goals were achieved and per IDEM’s residential requirements. Within a short amount of time, EnviroForensics got us through the redevelopment challenges and allowed us to continue the revitalization of downtown New Albany.”
