Andover, MA (February 10, 2020) – Cooperstown Environmental LLC announces that it has appointed Lauren Brown to spearhead the firm’s Environmental Due Diligence practice, effective January 1st.
The Andover, MA-based company provides environmental consulting and engineering support to businesses, governments, property developers, and others. Services include the management and implementation of a variety of site assessment and site remediation techniques for contaminated properties, sometimes known as “Brownfields,” as well as associated areas including tax credits, solar energy, and others.
Environmental Due Diligence is typically performed by property buyers prior to purchase to assess the current use and prior history of a site. The goal of the process is to determine if a property may have been impacted by “recognized environmental conditions.” If so, testing usually is performed to determine if contamination of the soil and/or groundwater exists.
Ms. Brown graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering. Following graduation, she joined Schlumberger Oilfield Services working throughout the world as a Field Engineer before starting with Cooperstown in 2016. At Cooperstown Ms. Brown has focused on environmental due diligence activities while also being highly involved in the firm’s other environmental consulting, legal support, brownfields tax credits and sub-slab depressurization work.
In her expanded role, Ms. Brown will seek to grow the firm’s business in performing Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) for banks and other lenders, prospective purchasers, brokers, attorneys, property owners, charities, and others associated with the commercial real estate market.
