Client: Developer

PEI Project Manager: Mr. Peter Gorton/John Berry

PEI completed a Phase I/II environmental assessment and remedial action plan to support a due diligence review for property transfer and re-development. Additionally, PEI wrote the BCP application, plans and associated documents to successfully get this project into the DEC BCP program. PEI recently completed engineering oversight of remediation services including removal of petroleum USTs and soil contaminated with PAHs under the BCP program. The property consists of a 1.8-acre parcel and includes an approximately 37,570 square foot slab-on-grade four-story concrete block and brick building. Also, a one-story slab-on-grade brick building that occupies approximately 14,100 square feet adjoins the four-story building on the south. The site has been associated with commercial/industrial use since at least 1886. Prior to 1900, the property was part of the area’s lumber industry and contained lumber storage and shingle manufacturing. From 1900 to the early 1920’s the property was occupied by the Herschell-Spillman Co. which manufactured carousels and other amusement park rides.  From 1925 to the early/mid 1970’s, the property was occupied by the Remington-Rand Corporation. From the mid 1970’s to present, the building complex was occupied by various commercial tenants including a chemical company, building contractors, warehousing, furniture and cabinetry makers. 

Under the BCP agreement PEI as the owner’s consultant completed a work plan to conduct a remedial investigation (RI) prepare a remedial action report (RAR) and identify interim remedial measures (IRMs). The owner’s architect along with PEI completed specifications and drawings to go out for bids to complete the IRMs. The IRMs include: remove and dispose off-site the top two feet of soil across the property and replace with clean soil or pavement sections; remove the PCB containing fluids from the old on-site transformers and dispose of the transformers and fluids off-site; clean sediments from the in floor drain system and dispose off-site; and install a sub slab vapor ventilation system in a small section of the building.
