A Brownfield, by definition, is an underutilized or abandoned property whose reuse and development faces challenges due to real or perceived hazardous material or contaminants. Wilcox & Barton, Inc. derives great satisfaction from researching, formulating, and executing redevelopment solutions for projects involving complex regulatory and technical issues in historically urban areas. Economic revitalization of Brownfields properties can maximize the value of historically industrial areas and preserve green space, and we take pride in being part of that process.
A wide array of financial options are available depending on the nature and extent of the Brownfield clean up. Our knowledge of strategies utilizing State and EPA Brownfield grants, tax credits, and financing programs along with liability management help our clients minimize the costs associated with their selected redevelopment strategy.
Regulations, permitting, procedures, and financial options vary from state to state within New England. Our experienced and qualified staff is up to date on current state and federal requirements. We coordinate with regulators on all levels and assist with writing grant applications to support Brownfield redevelopment. Our professionalism demonstrated during public outreach and stake holder meetings increases confidence and community engagement.
