Project snapshot highlights:

  • Successfully transformed a historic mill site into affordable housing, ensuring occupant safety from vapor intrusion.
  • Demonstrated flexibility in remediation strategies by adapting to specific contaminant concerns.
  • Implemented a comprehensive vapor mitigation approach with Nitra-Seal®, proving efficient and cost-effective.

A historic mill site in Greenville, SC, was successfully redeveloped into a residential complex with 214 affordable housing units. The site had trichloroethene (TCE) contamination, and to protect future residents from vapor intrusion risks, a Nitra-Seal Nitrile-Advanced vapor barrier system was installed. The project involved close coordination between Land Science, an environmental consultant, and a certified applicator to ensure efficient installation and compliance with quality standards. The redevelopment provides much-needed housing while repurposing a former brownfield site sustainably.
