Property Acquisition

We present our clients with the best information, based on sound engineering, so they can make educated decisions when acquiring a property to develop as a cultivation facility.

Environmental Due Diligence
The environmental assessment process identifies whether oil or hazardous materials have been released
on a site, where the releases occurred, as well as the cost and magnitude of remediation to bring the site
into regulatory compliance. Potential release areas are identified in Phase I. We sample to quantify releases in Phase II. Feasibility evaluations are provided in Phase III. We prepare feasibility studies, remediation cost estimates, and remedial action plans across New England to comply with state-specific regulatory requirements.

Facility Condition Assessment
Our team of experienced engineers assess the existing facility as it relates to use as a cultivation facility. We focus on structural integrity and its ability to adapt and expand. Facility utilities (electric, communications, fire protection, gas, water, and sewer) are assessed to determine the suitability and capacity to serve a cultivation facility. These services can be invaluable when considering leasing a property.

Hazardous Building Materials
Fuss & O’Neill EnviroScience, LLC provides comprehensive hazardous material support. Toxic and hazardous materials include materials, chemicals, or biologic agents that may pose a risk to human health or the environment. These materials, such as asbestos, lead, mold, PCBs and radon, may be found
within the building. Our services include building inspections, material sampling and analysis, development of design specifications, and monitoring for abatement programs.

Water Conservation & Wastewater Management

Commercial Cannabis crops create high demand for water that can be a strain on public water supply and natural habitat in rural settings. Fuss & O’Neill’s expertise in Water Conservation and Wastewater Management can help your production facility conserve and reuse water as well as design compliant Wastewater Solutions.
