Turnkey Brownfield Services

Operation Brownfields: Identification, Reclamation and Rebirth.

Transforming abandoned industrial sites into usable spaces.

Since 1988, Ransom Consulting has been a driving force behind hundreds of brownfield redevelopment projects throughout New England. Through meticulous research and planning, comprehensive risk assessment and by integrating site remediation with redevelopment plans, Ransom creates new opportunities for the successful redevelopment of contaminated brownfield sites of all shapes and sizes.

From Barren Brownfields to Sparkling Showplaces – A Spatial Metamorphosis.

The experienced team at Ransom Consulting provides proven, real-world environmental engineering solutions for brownfield site owners and prospective developers. From conducting initial site assessments, performing thorough hazardous materials inventories, to site plan development and permitting, Ransom Consulting is the firm you can trust to knowledgably guide you every step of the way.

Fertile Environment for Positive Change

Thanks in part to forward-looking programs administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state regulators and local regional development authorities, many designated brownfield sites have recently been recognized by community leaders and savvy entrepreneurs as potential locations for environmentally beneficial and profitable redevelopment.
Whether they are ultimately redeveloped for commercial, residential, light industrial, mixed use or simply as open green space, brownfield sites can often provide three of the most sought after qualities in real estate development – location, location, location.

“I have worked with the Ransom team for over five years and have found them to be extremely professional, responsive, supportive, and competent on some of our most visible and complex brownfields redevelopment projects. They have assisted us with the successful completion of multiple brownfields-related projects including environmental assessments, cleanup, and redevelopment planning. They have earned our trust at Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission (SMRPC) and are highly respected by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MEDEP) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA).”
