Devil in the Details

Case Study

Devil in the Details

A developer wanted to buy a site that had been dormant for over 20 years. Unfortunately, it had lingering groundwater and soil issues. To get project funding, the developer needed to obtain regulatory closure for the known conditions.

Risk Strategies’ Environmental team suggested a unique solution: apply deed restrictions on the problematic areas and modify the development plan to use the building as part of the remedy for cleanup.

One solution would be to use parking lots instead of underground garages. So the soil wouldn't have to be removed, and it would cap the soil in place. After securing “substantial completion” from the contractors, Risk Strategies negotiated with the insurance carrier to meet regulatory closure on soil issues, paving the way for the developer to secure project funding.
