Historical Main Street Project
River City Company formed in 1986 with the goal of revitalizing the downtown and riverfront areas of Chattanooga. Working in partnership with local officials and citizens, the team has worked on many signature redevelopment efforts for over thirty years.
The Main Street District is one of the premier “up-and-coming” redevelopment projects. Historical site operations, however, resulted in a blighted vacant site at a key intersection. River City Company selected S&ME as a consultant to provide environmental services. Our services included assessment, soil and groundwater characterization, and pre-demolition asbestos survey. S&ME also provided grant support, development of brownfield clean-up alternatives and regulatory coordination. The selected remedy resulted in a reduced volume of soil requiring transportation to and off-site disposal in landfills. It also required less subgrade preparation and yielded a number of environmental benefits.
