Syndicate Trust Building: St. Louis, MO.

The Syndicate Trust Building is a 17-story commercial office and residential building on the Historic Registry located in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. PE provided comprehensive environmental services to redevelop the building into commercial office and residential “loft- style” apartments. PE provided a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment in accordance with ASTM Standards, including asbestos-containing material/lead-based paint survey and hazardous material inventory. PE enrolled the building into the Missouri Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP) and assisted the developer in accessing Historical and brownfield tax credits for the development. PE developed comprehensive project specifications for the environmental remediation of all hazardous materials and provided third-party contractor oversight of the environmental remediation, including area and clearance air/wipe sampling, project documentation and regulatory compliance.


Blumeyer Redevelopment Project - St. Louis, MO.

The Blumeyer Project consisted of a major (multi-phased) HUD redevelopment within a severely depressed brownfield neighborhood of St. Louis City. PE was contracted to perform Phase I and Phase I and Phase II ESAs on individual properties. The ESAs is included drilling and soil sampling, monitoring well installation/development/sampling, geophysical surveying, trenching, asbestos and LBP surveys, HHW inventories, wetland investigations, regulatory file reviews, analytical/ geotechnical testing, data evaluation, and reporting. PE also prepared a remedial design outlining procedures for site security, clearing and grubbing, abandonment and relocation of utilities, structure decontamination and demolition (including asbestos/lead abatement and removal of HHW), and site restoration.

Murphy Park Development – St. Louis, MO. PE conducted an environmental assessment for the proposed Residences of Murphy Park – Phase III. The assessment was

conducted to assess any environmental impact of ten large parcels of land to be developed as a $100 million private/public residential partnership investment. PE developed a Phase II sampling plan to address the concerns identified in the Phase I ESA. The Phase II sampling indicated approximately 10,000 cubic yards of soil contaminated with semi-volatile compounds, lead, arsenic, and petroleum hydrocarbons. PE wrote remedial work plans to remove the materials and provided remedial oversight activities throughout completion of the project.

Phase I ESA – Cole County, MO.

PE performed an expanded scope Phase I ESA at a rural 9.5 acre wooded site in Cole County, MO, with a creek running through the northern portion of the property. In addition to an ASTM-compliant Phase I ESA, PE was tasked with performing a Wetlands Determination, which identified several Palustrine ponds within 1,000 feet of the site, as well as an Endangered Species Evaluation, which included a review of federal and state resources to determine what, if any, species of concern might be on the property, including endangered and threatened species specific to riparian areas, migratory birds, and birds protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.

MBS - Kansas City Jazz District, Kansas City, MO.

PE worked with MBS to assess and remediate a 7-block area within the historic Kansas City Jazz District. The scope of work included a Phase I ESA of the entire 7 blocks, Phase II ESAs at individual properties throughout the proposed re-development area, and remediation/abatement of contaminated buildings and on-site surface soils.

Bank of America and MBS – Vashon/JVL Neighborhood Screening, St. Louis, MO.

PE provided a Neighborhood Screening Assessment for multiple clients developing the 435-acre Vashon/Jeff Vander Lou area in St. Louis. The investigation consisted of an extensive historical records search (hundreds of large Sanborn Map sheets, numerous aerial photographs from various decades, thousands of pages of street directories, topographic maps, and available city documents), an environmental government database records search (with hundreds of different site profiles), and site reconnaissance of hundreds of individual properties. Recognized environmental conditions were identified along with facilities containing low- and medium-risk environmental concerns. The information was documented in a final report (along with potential cleanup costs) designed to assist clients in the site selection process for future development projects.
