Reducing environmental risk to reduce financial risk.
Unlocking opportunities for abandoned industrial properties.
For years, Florida investors had a fear of contaminated properties. This was largely the result of some high-profile cases in which developers acquired former industrial properties — only to be held liable for prior contamination on the sites.
Fortunately, regulations have been adjusted to ease the rescue and re-development of “brownfield” sites (abandoned industrial/commercial properties).
Today, these properties represent vital opportunities for Florida, because reclaiming brownfield sites can help spare other pristine lands from development.
ERMI is an essential ally in the re-use of environmentally impaired locations. We are experts in the legislation associated with brownfield usage, and can help property owners determine whether they are eligible for state-funded cleanup programs.
ERMI is a corporate member of the Florida Brownfields Association. ERMI President Steve Hilfiker and Principal Engineer Tim Terwilliger have presented at the Florida Brownfields Conference, and will remain leaders in environmental associations to further improve opportunities on impacted sites.
