Award Winning Brownfield Cleanup Project

149 Kent Avenue; Brooklyn, New York

We are pleased to announce that the 149 Kent Avenue Site was presented the 2017 Big Apple Brownfield Award for Innovation by the New York City Brownfield Partnership. Roux is the environmental consultant for this 40,000-square-foot property located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Site housed a former rail terminal turned storage warehouse and required extensive remediation of chlorinated volatile organic compound (CVOC) impacted media to accommodate development of the 7-story, mixed-use commercial and residential building and underground parking garage.

Investigations included soil, soil vapor, and soil stockpile sampling to determine remaining contamination.
