Market Overview

Our urban landscapes are often littered with aging or run-down areas and abandoned sites. Given the human pressures on our land, these sites represent opportunities for brownfield redevelopment. They can be reborn
and returned to productive use, while revitalizing neighborhoods and inner
city areas.

Whether it's an urban factory, a moth-balled power plant, a decaying commercial center, or blighted residential neighborhoods, we can return value to the client and society through brownfield development. We combine our expertise in the earth & environment, buildings and infrastructure practices into an integrated team of professionals to provide complete delivery of a redevelopment project. Our teams understand the special planning, design, and construction challenges that come with brownfield sites - especially those in downtown urban areas with active residents, traffic flows, and live utilities - where innovative and collaborative solutions with multiple stakeholders are a prerequisite for success. Proactive stakeholder engagement and management of the financial, legal, and environmental risks are key elements to our project delivery plans for brownfield sites.
