Brownfield Redevelopment Completed in Grand Haven

Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) was retained by a local business (GLASSource) to provide environmental services necessary for the successful restoration and redevelopment of a former machine shop located in Grand Haven, Michigan.  The former machine shop was compromised with unusable building space and adverse environmental conditions.  LEI utilized its Brownfield expertise to: assist the developer with demolition activities and complete complex Baseline Environmental Assessment, Due Care, and Response Activities for approval by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and U.S. Small Business Administration.  The project resulted in the restoration and refurbishment of approximately 70,000 plus square feet of existing building space, construction of nearly 20,000 square feet of new office and industrial space, creation of new jobs, increased tax base for the City of Grand Haven, and significantly improved aesthetic and environmental conditions.  The repurposed building now serves as the main headquarters and production facility for GLASSource, a specialty glass and mirror manufacturer.
