The goal of Brownfields legislation is to encourage redevelopment of contaminated urban sites. These changes in the law have provided for the use of innovative tools to facilitate the sale, redevelopment and/or reuse of environmentally distressed properties.

Riverfront’s environmental scientists and engineers have been involved in numerous Brownfields projects that have resulted in idle properties being put back into economically beneficial use. We can create a liaison between the property developer and the regulatory community as well as lenders and other financers. Riverfront can also assist in identifying development and innovative financing opportunities to support the redevelopment process.

Brownfields projects commonly include completion of a Phase I and Phase II ESA, Subsurface Investigation, Hazardous Waste Management and Risk-Based Corrective Action, and may also include Underground Storage Tank Management, and management of Asbestos and Lead-Based Paint. Riverfront is experienced in all facets of the Brownfields process, which makes us a key member of property redevelopment team.
