Sustainable Design, Brownfield and Remediation Project Experience

With more than 125 LEED APs on staff, sustainable design weaves through all Langan services. Our diverse portfolio of intelligent site planning, design, and engineering coupled with our Brownfield and site remediation expertise places us at the forefront of the sustainable design movement.

Langan has been an instrumental player on dozens of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and sustainable design projects. Our expertise allows us to make significant contributions in developing sustainable sites with an emphasis on stormwater management, low impact landscapes, brownfield redevelopment, materials recycling, energy conservation, and renewable energy design.

Cascades Park

OVERVIEW
Langan was a subconsultant for design consulting and engineering oversight for the Cascades Park remediation project, a former coal gasification plant and landfill Superfund site that was remediated by the City of Tallahassee under an Administrative Order of Consent with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The site was redeveloped into a multi-use public park.

Haddon Township Redevelopment Area A

OVERVIEW
In 2002, Haddon Township adopted a redevelopment plan for the Haddon Avenue corridor. The 6+ acre site included multiple dilapidated, abandoned and underused Brownfields sites with suspected environmental impacts and designated a Brownfield Development Area (BDA) by the NJDEP in September 2008. To facilitate the completion of environmental investigation and remediation activities for the Brownfield sites, Langan assisted Haddon Township in obtaining grants through the NJDEP Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund (HDSRF) program. Langan prepared and obtained approval of multiple HDSRF applications resulting in approximately $3,500,000 being allocated to Haddon Township to complete the investigation and remediation of the Brownfield sites. The site has been redeveloped with a mixed use transit village including retail space and apartments spread over seven four and five story buildings and a community clubhouse.

3D Visualization of Comingled Chlorinated Solvent Plumes

OVERVIEW
Langan provided 3D visualization analysis of the hydrogeologic framework and contaminant transport at a former industrial facility in New Jersey. The site was characterized by a large and dilute chlorinated solvent plume that has migrated 5,300 feet within a fractured bedrock aquifer. Multiple off-site sources also contributed dissolved solvents to the comingled plume. Environmental Visualization Studio (EVS) software was utilized in order to gain a better understanding of contaminant transport in the fractured and faulted bedrock aquifer. EVS software uses advanced gridding and geostatistical analysis to create 3D models of geologic setting and analyte spatial data.

Tallahassee Renewable Energy Center

OVERVIEW
Biomass Gas & Electric is proposing to construct a biomass-fueled electrical generating power plant on an approximately 23-acre site in a geologically karst sensitive area. The site contains wetlands, a high voltage transmission line, and a significant grade change. Langan provided site/civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, natural resources and associated permitting services. Langan designed the site to accommodate the most efficient use of the land for the power plant while avoiding impacts to wetlands and balancing earthwork.
