The most critical part of brownfield redevelopment is integration of civil engineering and construction elements with assessment and remediation. This must be done in such a way as to maximize the reuse of the property while providing protection of human health and the environment.
A brownfield is a tract of land or property that is being underutilized due to a real or perceived environmental condition caused by an industrial facility, landfill, gas station, or dry cleaning operation. Redeveloping these types of properties is fundamentally about recycling the land and mitigating health and environmental risks while allowing for sustainable reuse. Kimley-Horn can assist you with all facets of your brownfield project, overcoming any obstacles while partnering with all stakeholders and entities involved.
