The City of Shakopee, Minnesota had a piece of prime real-estate, located in their central downtown, that needed to be brought up to code in order to be sold for redevelopment. WSB was contracted by the city to provide numerous investigation and remediation services for the future site of the DECO Apartments.
To facilitate redevelopment, WSB completed an asbestos and regulated materials survey of the former City Hall building, which led to the identification of multiple asbestos-containing materials. Additionally, the team completed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment for the site, which identified two recognized environmental conditions, including the presence of an adjacent dry cleaner. WSB coordinated the removal of the former City Hall building, including demolition and restoration specifications, bidding packages, and providing project management and oversight during demolition.
