JMS assists private parties, municipalities, developers and businesses in the assessment, cleanup, and restoration of brownfields properties to productive use. The key to successful redevelopment of a brownfields project is the coordination of the remediation with the redevelopment of the property. JMS makes coordination the central focus of our work, enabling clients to reach their project objectives in the most practical way possible.
Brownfields is the industry term for abandoned and underutilized sites with environmental concerns that complicate the reuse of the property. Brownfield sites offer potential opportunities for redevelopment as retail, commercial, residential, and industrial centers. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties is essential to revitalizing communities and reducing development pressure on undeveloped land. As a result, brownfields cleanup and redevelopment programs have been established on both the state and federal level, to provide economic incentives and liability protections to potential redevelopers.
