The number one factor plaguing real estate transactions at contaminated sites is cost uncertainty. It’s almost a universal truth that the only thing we know for sure about cost estimates is that they’re wrong. Everyone has their favorite horror story about dramatic cost overruns, and we know several.
In particular, Environmental projects are notorious for their high budget over-runs. Why? It’s simply because they’re typically based on guesstimates with zero financial risk to the “expert” service provider. Is there that much uncertainty in environmental work? Is it reasonable for you to carry all the risk?
Dr. Harm Gross, the owner of Next Environmental Inc., challenged the appropriateness of this several years ago when his firm began fixing the cost of each step of contaminated site investigations. Over the past several years, the NEXT Team extended this concept to various types of remediation projects whereby one payment was all that was needed to apply for a Certificate of Compliance. Now, for the first time, remediation cost certainty means the cost of environmental compliance is only a line item on a spreadsheet.
