Community Development Consulting Services
The decline of the manufacturing industry and recent recession have left several communities in Michigan and Ohio to find new uses for abandoned or damaged properties that contain old factories and dilapidated commercial buildings, surface debris, abandoned storage tanks and environmental contamination.
Due to the potential presence of hazardous substances, the redevelopment of these brownfield sites is significantly hindered. Allowing facilities to fall into disrepair can threaten public health, water quality and the economic vitality of communities. Revitalizing these brownfield sites provides an opportunity to improve and diversify local economies.
NTH promotes community development and reinvention efforts and strives to be a premier assessment, design, remediation and redevelopment consultant. NTH helps our clients find new uses for abandoned or damaged properties that contain old factories and dilapidated commercial buildings, surface debris, abandoned storage tanks and environmental contamination.
