Case Study: From Conception to Reality
A child care center owner identified a site in Central New Jersey for development. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I) was performed prior to the property acquisition to satisfy bank lending requirements. Additionally, all anticipated play area and groundwater sampling was conducted to ensure NJDEP compliance once the property was acquired.
Once the property was acquired, using the Phase I data, a Preliminary Assessment and Report was prepared to comply with NJDEP requirements. Given that no contaminants were identified prior to property acquisition, a Response Action Outcome was readily issued to comply with NJ Department of Children and Families licensing requirements.
The benefit of performing all anticipated NJDEP testing prior to acquiring the property made the licensing process relatively easy and risk-free for the child care center owner.
