Fisher Associates investigated the historic use of the school property to determine the potential for environmental issues with the addition of a new wing to the school. The project involved testing of soils, development of a soil management plan for moving the soils at the property, and implemented long term monitoring of engineering controls installed during construction. Tasks completed for this project were:
On behalf of the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) and the Buffalo Urban Development Corporation (BUDC), Fisher Associates performed various environmental site investigations associated with a number of underutilized industrial brownfield properties along Northland Avenue and the Beltline Railroad in the City of Buffalo. The acquisition and reuse of these properties will result in construction of a new manufacturing hub, neighborhood revitalization, and employment opportunities for nearby residents.
Fisher Associates’ scope of work included a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment and a Limited Phase II Environmental Site Assessment. The Phase II work included soil and groundwater sampling and analysis and an intensive hazardous materials assessment within on-site buildings to characterize asbestos, lead and PCBs.
The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), in conjunction with the State University Construction Fund, will develop a new academic research building on the ESF campus in Syracuse, New York. The project includes a 55,000 square foot academic research building, on-site stormwater retention facilities (Sand filter/dike and bioswales) and parking.
Fisher Associates’ scope of work included a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, Limited Phase II Environmental Site Assessment, geotechnical investigations and topographic surveys. The Phase II work included soil and groundwater testing and analysis for environmental due diligence purposes and to characterize the site for disposal of excavated materials.
