Construction projects are often significantly delayed or even abandoned as a result of unforeseen environmental conditions such as contaminated soil or groundwater. Recent state and municipal regulations require development and implementation of environmental safeguards as part of many construction projects such as air monitoring programs and specific protocols for the disposal of contaminated soil from construction projects. These requirements, in combination with environmental issues typically encountered during redevelopment of urban and industrial properties, make effective management of environmental concerns associated with these projects of paramount importance to construction companies and developers. Not taking into account the environmental aspects of a potentially contaminated site will ultimately delay and impact the overall success and profitability of the project.
As a direct outgrowth of our investigation and remediation services, D&B has been at the forefront of providing environmental services to support construction projects. D&B can assist construction and developer clients with a wide array of environmental services from preparing submittals for review/approval to implementing environmental monitoring plans to managing the proper transportation and disposal of contaminated soil. This allows our clients to focus on getting the project underway and completed in a timely manner and within budgetary requirements.
D&B also assists clients with any required interaction and negotiations with regulatory agencies that may be involved in a given construction project. Given our experience, we can quickly navigate through the complex web of environmental regulations that may potentially delay a project, helping clients to keep the undertaking on schedule and within budget.
