A vacant textile mill property, originally constructed in 1863, was demolished, remediated and redeveloped as a low-income, affordable/supportive residential apartment complex by Mill at Killingly Apartments, LLC (a corporation formed by the Women’s Institute for Housing and Economic Development [WIHED]). On behalf of the CT Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), Office of Brownfields Remediation and Development (OBRD), the Town of Killingly, and WIHED, Loureiro completed multiple phases of environmental investigations.
Loureiro completed multiple phases of investigation and assessment to understand soil and groundwater conditions as well as to understand the presence of hazardous building materials (e.g., asbestos). Loureiro then worked with the client to develop abatement and demolition costs as well as site investigation and remedial strategies to address site concerns. Loureiro designed, oversaw, directed and documented all site remediation in coordination with the project’s general contractor to assure the timely completion of necessary work in a manner that did not interfere with other construction work.
The project is complete and is currently an active low-income, affordable/supportive housing complex (with some market-rate apartments). Loureiro was instrumental helping to convert a derelict industrial property with multiple environmental concerns.
