Served as the primary consulting firm for a development consortium acquiring approximately 120 acres of former industrial property in El Segundo as part of major new commercial retail development. Facilities being acquired include former Honeywell Chemical plant, former General Chemical facility, and Air Products facility. Issues of concern include pesticides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), heavy metals, and refrigerants. With the assistance of BEC, the Consortium has negotiated for the purchase of selected parcels at a discount in exchange for taking on cleanup responsibilities. BEC is currently implementing cleanup programs on several of these parcels. The first phase of the development opened in 2006 and is known as Playa El Segundo.
