Brownfield redevelopment activities have been completed at the new location of a commercial retail facility in central Pennsylvania. LEI was hired to supervise the removal of several underground storage tanks and excavation and proper disposal of contaminated soil.
All tasks completed/supervised by LEI were conducted during redevelopment activities – requiring fast response and completion times and good communication with the developer, contractors and field staff. LEI was able to manage the project so that no developer deadlines were missed.
LEI is excited to announce that Melissa Powers has successfully obtained her Asbestos Building Inspector Certification. She is now licensed in the State of Michigan through LARA and the MIOSHA – Asbestos Program to conduct asbestos building surveys. This will enhance LEI’s ability to further meet the needs of our clients.
Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) has been retained by a growing local industrial company to assist with the Brownfield redevelopment of vacant industrial land located in Muskegon County, Michigan. With a history of over 100 years of heavy industrial activity, the environmental integrity of this property has been compromised, requiring the need for significant Brownfield redevelopment incentives to facilitate the project. LEI has been tasked with procuring Brownfield redevelopment funds to assist with comprehensive assessment of the property and response activities to ensure safe redevelopment. LEI will complete a Baseline Environmental Assessment, Due Care Plan, and other documents to protect the developer and end user.
The redevelopment will involve the construction of a new industrial facility, which will result in improved environmental and aesthetic conditions on the property, significantly increased tax revenue for the community, and new job creation. Construction activities are expected to commence in the fall of 2014.
LEI thanks Kirk Perschbacher, Project Geologist with LEI, for initiating LEI’s involvement in recent debris cleanup along the Grand River in Grand Haven, Michigan. Investing time into the community is a key core value of LEI. Maintaining the aesthetic integrity of our wonderful waterways is one example of LEI’s commitment to “Improving the Environment and Strengthening our Communities”.
