Wenck can help you through the entire real estate opportunity – from original Phase I and II site assessments, to final construction and care beyond. Our consultants have a keen knowledge of developmental procedures: researching, collecting, and analyzing data on the atmospheric, aquatic, terrestrial, and socioeconomic environments for input to environmental assessments and regulatory applications. We solve these problems, ultimately exceeding aspirations of the property, no matter the scale. Smart design, creative cost-effective strategies, and sustainable environmental compliance are part of our service to clients and their communities now, and for years to come. We ask the tough questions to create enduring results.

We go beyond routine assessments and leverage historical data to educate our clients throughout the real estate transaction process.

We also help our clients secure federal, state, and local Brownfield grant and financial incentives whenever possible.
