LEI has hired a new Project Scientist, Andrew DeLodder, to assist with the growing needs of our expanding ESA/Brownfield Department. Andrew is a recent graduate of Northern Michigan University with a B.S. degree in Environmental Studies and Sustainability. Prior to joining LEI, Mr. DeLodder worked at Tanknology as an Environmental Compliance Technician.
The restoration process has begun for a 1903 brick building on Grand Haven’s northeast side. This former two-story industrial building will be repurposed into professional office space for a growing development and construction company.
LEI partnered with the City of Grand Haven to obtain DEQ grant and loan funds that would assist with the redevelopment. Grant and loan funds were necessary to address the Brownfield conditions on the Site, primarily involving lead-paint and asbestos abatement, interior demolition activities, and the development of a vapor intrusion mitigation system.
