The Glasshouse

OVERVIEW
The Glasshouse is a five-story, residential mixed-use building with over 300 apartment units, ground floor restaurant and retail space, and indoor parking. The project is extremely environmentally sensitive because of the location within the floodplain, site contaminants, and the ACT II process. Langan’s environmental team facilitated the ACT II process that helped to procure funding; addressed site contaminants and underground storage tanks; and developed a soil characterization and management plan to optimize re-use and disposal. Our site/civil engineers coordinated with the DEP, Allegheny County Conservation District, and City of Pittsburgh to develop a stormwater management plan that met City and DEP requirements while working with the site constraints.
