Brownfield Redevelopment

We understand that a primary goal of Brownfield redevelopment is to facilitate economic growth through the revitalization and re-use of existing infrastructure and commercial/industrial facilities rather than expansion and consumption of limited green space.  We have been working with property owners, communities, and developers on this mission since our company’s founding in 2002.

To achieve these objectives Brownfield Restoration Group, LLC provides the technical services required to assess the nature and extent of environmental impact to property.  We also develop and implement strategies designed to cost-effectively mitigate environmental concerns.  The following services are provided, utilizing in-house staff, in an integrated approach to restore property to its intended industrial, commercial, or residential use:

  • Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP)
  • Phase I Property Assessment
  • Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP)
  • Phase II Property Assessment
  • Risk Assessment
  • Remedial Action Plan (RAP)
  • Remedial Action
  • BUSTR Closure
  • RCRA Closure
  • Urban Setting Designation Request (USD)
  • No Further Action (NFA) Documentation

​Brownfield Restoration Group, LLC has extensive knowledge and expertise in the appropriate application of environmental regulations as they pertain to impacted properties.  We are experienced in completing projects in accordance with any combination of the following regulatory programs:

  • Voluntary Action Program (VAP)
  • Bureau of Underground Storage Tank Regulations (BUSTR)
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA)
  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)

Our experience has demonstrated that an integrated approach between the mitigation of environmental issues and the redevelopment of the site yields the most cost-effective solutions and
successful outcomes.  For example, often simple institutional controls compatible with development plans (e.g., ground water use restrictions or commercial/industrial land use restrictions) can be employed to significantly reduce remedial costs.  Parking lots and/or building floors that are part of the redevelopment plans can be advantageously located to serve as engineering controls to block exposure pathways to subsurface contamination.  These opportunities cannot be fully realized if environmental assessment and remediation are performed in isolation from overall site redevelopment.

Superfund and Legacy Property Management

We also provide full staffing for the legacy property management and remediation department of a Fortune 500 company with global environmental liabilities.  These professionals are 100% dedicated to the needs of the corporation and serve as an outsourced  environmental staff.  Our experience ranges from complete project management on numerous Superfund projects to oversight of large portfolios of multi-state sites requiring assessment and remediation.  This practice group operates independently from the Brownfield redevelopment consulting that we provide.
