OUR PERSPECTIVE: REALISTIC, OPTIMISTIC
CCLR has provided environmental technical assistance to nonprofits, for-profit developers, and local governments since 1996. Our experience shows that armed with the proper management skills, developers can consider more properties and reduce the time, cost, and risk associated with contamination issues. With the right tools and consultant teams, we have assisted hundreds of properties that bear environmental risk to become economically feasible and marketable properties.
