Commercial Development Litigation Support
Commercial development litigation support services provided when 30,000 cubic yards of construction-related fill material is abandoned at development property.
Modern Geosciences was engaged by the legal counsel of this commercial property developer to assist in the evaluation of over 30,000 cubic yards of construction-related fill material left on site by a construction firm leasing the property. Modern completed a Phase I ESA and subsequent investigation activities to supplement existing data. Efforts also included geospatial evaluation of the fill volume using survey data before and after filling events. Based on the new information, Modern was able to help the client settle a pending lawsuit to the satisfaction of both parties. This included the closure of the property within the Texas Voluntary Cleanup Program and development of a waste management plan for any material needing off-site disposal.
