Challenges

Planned redevelopment of a 1960s-era automobile dealership property with extensive vehicle service/body shops and an adjoining former retail gas station tract. Following purchase, the dealership was to have three existing structures demolished for redevelopment as an emergency care hospital and medical office building. Obstacles included:

  • The presence of 35+ in-ground hydraulic lifts, an oil-water separator, historic septic tanks, petroleum hydrocarbon ASTs, and numerous regulated/hazardous chemicals
  • The presence of asbestos-containing materials within existing site structures

Due diligence assessment of site soil

Solutions

Thorough due diligence assessments and hazardous materials inventory was performed. Given progressive site development that preceded demolition, asbestos and other hazardous materials required turn-key removal prior to demolition. TGE expedited seamless abatement of all hazardous materials within the buildings. Prior to building demolition, all 35+ in-ground hydraulic lifts, service bay trench drains, oil-water separators, and septic systems at the site were properly removed and affected property remediated. TGE engineered a vapor intrusion mitigation system, which was installed with engineering oversight and post-construction system testing to demonstrate compliance and occupant safety.

Outcome

TGE’s efforts were successful in enabling site redevelopment with fully compliant asbestos abatement, expedited regulatory case closure for impacted soil, and the installation of engineering controls within the newly-constructed sensitive use building to protect the health of building occupants/patrons.
