This four-part monthly program, presented by the EBC Site Remediation and Redevelopment Committee, will use a MOCK transaction scenario to take you through all the phases of developing a brownfield site in Massachusetts. View the Attendee List

Our mock case will involve High Tech Industries, Inc., a company that wants to build a new world headquarters on a high value location, and Messy Scrap Yard Incorporated, a property owner that wants to sell a 75-year-old 30-acre family-run scrap yard in the perfect spot.

Part One: January 17 – Transaction, Funding Aids, and Project Set-up
Part Two: February 14 – Development and Build-Out Planning
Part Three: March 17 – Demolition Phase
Part Four: April 12 – Redevelopment Waste Management Considerations

The series will provide an interactive case study of the trials and tribulations of developing an old contaminated industrial property, located in Massachusetts, into a new and vibrant use.  Attendees will observe the interaction between a mock buyer (High Tech Industries, Inc.) and a mock seller (Messy Scrap Yard Incorporated), along with their mock legal counsel, during acquisition negotiations, site assessment, resolution of assessment results, the funding process, final sale, and resolution of several typical development challenges.

This second program, Part Two: Development and Build-Out Planning, will focus on build-out planning including application of a BUD, storm water management on a contaminated site, sea level and flooding concerns in a coastal setting, on-site soil management, and dealing with vapor intrusion concerns, and will also provide a developer’s perspective including project estimating and financing to make the project work.  Participants will then take part in a panel discussion to facilitate observations and questions with the audience, as well as an introduction to Part Three.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
