Brownfields Redevelopment

Brilliant Environmental Services, LLC (Brilliant) provides assistance with environmental land planning for Brownfields redevelopment sites utilizing its combined Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and remediation capabilities. With expertise in these two inter-related fields, Brilliant is able to evaluate the cost implications associated with various land plans when considered in conjunction with soil contamination issues at a site. Brilliant works with developers and engineers to review a site layout, review the contaminant conditions, and develop an associated soil remediation plan and cost analysis within the time-constraints of a typical real estate due diligence period. Brilliant’s mission is to alert our clients to the critical issues involved with developing contaminated sites and then help facilitate the development in the most cost-effective manner possible. This value-added service provides the essential information to clients wishing to redevelop Brownfields sites and offers them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Through public grants, municipalities are able to secure funds to perform Phase I ESA/Preliminary Assessments (PA), Phase II ESA/Site Investigations (SI), and even remediation for designated Brownfields sites in their communities. Brilliant has experience assisting municipalities through this process as well as performing the work and identifying an appropriate redevelopment strategy. This is achieved by exploiting Brilliant’s wide array of resources that incorporate both environmental and construction expertise to arrive at solutions that balance the regulatory requirements and practical concerns of redevelopment.

Brilliant has a skilled pool of multi-disciplinary professionals that offer a wide range of capabilities to handle the various types of environmental issues and concerns that can be present at contaminated sites. Whether the sites are impacted by petroleum compounds, chlorinated solvents, heavy metals, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), or other hazardous substances, Brilliant can expertly evaluate the key issues and provide solutions that meet regulatory requirements and fit with the client’s needs. Brilliant also has experience working with the major state and federal regulating bodies and programs as well as being extremely proficient in navigating through the network of regulations and bureaucracy to achieve formal site closures in a cost-effective and timely manner.
