AEG was the general contractor on behalf of Enviro Finance Group, the brownfield developer overseeing the redevelopment of the Asarco Globeville Smelter facility in north Denver, Colorado. AEG’s scope was overseeing all of the soil and groundwater remediation for the Site, including in situ treatment of heavy metals, design, build, and operations of an industrial water treatment facility, and the stabilization of over 600,000 cubic yards of soils and plant site wastes. This article summarizes the resultant societal benefits of this project.
