WSP also provided the environmental liability assessment as part of the project due diligence. 

The boutique hotel and condominium complex was built on numerous parcels of property, some of which had over 100 years of industrial history.

The incinerator building, which was incorporated into the building design, had a number of environmental issues, including asbestos, lead-based paint, and bird feces (which can be quite toxic).

In addition, WSP provided mold assessment advice after the building construction was completed.
