The National Geospatial Agency (NGA) has chosen to relocate from South St. Louis to approximately 100 acres of mixed-use residential, commercial, and industrial property in near north St. Louis City. While keeping the jobs in St. Louis is of vital importance to the City, presenting the NGA with a clean, construction-ready site is an expensive and formidable challenge on many levels. The City has engaged EOI to assist with this challenge.
Initially, EOI generated applications for the Brownfields Voluntary Cleanup Program (BVCP) and the Missouri Department of Economic Development's (DED) Brownfield Tax Credit program, state programs that provide agency oversight of and fund the environmental cleanup. EOI also generated the Risk Management Plan for BVCP and provides regulatory reporting and reimbursement requests for the DED tax credits, and continues to coordinate and negotiate with these agencies as needed.
EOI provides project management and oversight of the overall site remediation, abatement, and demolition, conducting oversight of multiple abatement, demolition, and remediation contractors; strategizing with the City and its consultants; and performing confirmation sampling of soils and air monitoring. In addition, EOI provided Pollution Legal Liability insurance to financially protect the owner for all unknown environmental liabilities.
