Real estate development routinely involves properties with urban fill or contaminated soil and groundwater. Fully understanding whether these conditions exist is important to the development process. With the ever-changing regulatory environment, the costs associated with managing urban fill and contaminated media affects the project’s feasibility, design, construction approach, and financing. These environmental conditions can have a significant financial impact on development projects and should be understood as early as possible.

This presentation will provide attendees with an understanding of the commonly encountered site conditions that present environmental liability, what impacts these have on financing, and how they affect the real estate development process. This presentation will provide the audience with case studies and lessons learned from projects where urban fill and contaminated media were successfully managed from the point of identification through the completion of construction.

Our panel of experts include Brian Bachmann, Project Manager & Geologist at St.Germain, Joe Dasco, Principal at Reger Dasco Properties, and Kim Twitchell, Maine Regional President of NBT Bank. MEREDA Vice President, Shannon Richards of Hay Runner will moderate the program.

Join us on November 10th!
