Real Estate

PWGC has developed a well-honed approach to the assessing and proposing solutions for environmentally challenged properties, unlocking hidden value and enabling redevelopment of undervalued properties. Given its importance, real estate represents one of PWGC’s largest market segments and the division is led by some of the firm’s senior and most experienced members. PWGC has performed a variety of site assessments ranging in size from small commercial sites to area-wide projects for the public and private sector including for financial institutions, environmental attorneys, municipalities and economic development agencies.

PWGC recognizes that every development project has its own identity and that each environmental site assessment is unique, depending on client objectives, site conditions and regulatory environments. Our approach to each site assessment is based on extensive discourse with the client to ensure that an appropriate remedial plan is drafted that will meet their objectives.
