This information is cru- cial when quantifying the remediation expenditures with investors and other stakehold- ers. Facts and figures, when presented to your team, eas- ily sum up the progress being made in a way that everyone can understand, digest, and quantify. This data is also important for environmental regulators who will evaluate and confirm compliance with rules and regulations prior to redevelopment. Time and money: The most important metrics Technical metrics are cer- tainly important, but the right environmental consulting firm integrates business metrics as well. Developers have budget and scheduling obligations to maintain, and when a cleanup can easily run up both quickly, time and money can either make or break a smooth and successful land development deal. Therefore, it’s crucial that environmental reme- diation projects are associated with time and money incen- tives to ensure that all parties deliver on schedule, and with- out overspending. That’s why EWMA developed SECUR-IT. This program de- termines a guaranteed fixed- price remediation so develop- ers can properly estimate and of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA) . Attorneys are invited into Fellowship after being evaluated for effec- tiveness and accomplishment in litigation and trial work, along with ethical reputation. LCA has kept the number of full Fellowships at an exclu- sive limit by design, allowing qualifications, diversity and inclusion to align effectively. Fellows are generally at the partner or shareholder level or marketing and national pres- ence of SVN-Miller will certain- ly enhance my ability to assist buyers and sellers of national brand dealerships. SVN-Miller is a clear competitive advantage in this business segment and I very much look forward to work- ing with Brent, Amy, and their team” states Hopkins.

control costs in an unpredict- able environment. Under this program, a single contract can cover all areas of concern at a project site, predetermines how long the remediation will take, howmuch it will cost, and provides a scope and a regula- tory path to closure. All of this clearly defines what needs to be done, which objectives will be met, and most importantly, when and for how much it will be completed. Importantly, EWMA ties scope to perfor- mance indicators to further ensure that goals are met as planned. EWMA prides itself on going beyond key technical issues. Sure, we’ll give you the nitty- gritty science of your remedia- tion, but what’s most important is our commitment to your time and money. By integrating key environmental metrics with business metrics, we can en- sure that the time and money you invest in your remediation is not only working, but worth it. We are moving the needle on a dollar-to-dollar basis, re- inventing the value and future development investment. Donald W. Richardson, CPG is president of envi- ronmental consulting firm EWMA and a thought lead- er on innovative real estate cleanup strategies.  “This recognition is well deserved and rounds out other accolades for Robb this year,” said managing partner Jona- than Spergel . “He was also included in the Top 100 Phila- delphia Super Lawyers listing along with being named the Best Lawyers 2019 Environ- mental Law ‘Lawyer of the Year’ in Philadelphia.”  network to seven dealerships in four states.

to hire trucks to haul it away. That type of information is clear-cut, easy to convey, and most importantly, shows ex- actly what was bought. Other in situ cleanup strat- egies, such as groundwater, are conducted out of sight. Everything takes place un- derground, where nobody can really observe with certainty what is happening or see when a change occurs. That makes it difficult for insurance carriers, investors, and other stake- holders to understand where all that money is going and if the remediation is actually working. Which metrics should your environmental con- sultant provide? The developer or property owner should ask the environ- mental remediation team to regularly provide data which- can measure how the cleanup is going. The remediation team should be willing to regularly communicate results that best explain and track progress and pitfalls during the remediation process. Reputable and trust- worthy remediation specialists will be happy to provide the data necessary to justify the big investment you’re mak- ing toward environmental cleanup. tal, energy a n d l a n d use law firm based in the Philadelphia region, con- g r a t u l a t e s its partner Robert D.
