ICF Environment Engineering + Revitalization

Engineering + Revitalization

ICF International brings sustainable engineering and revitalization to brownfields and other impaired and contaminated sites, providing services from environmental risk assessment to liability determination and green reuse alternatives.



ICF integrates multiple areas of expertise to help clients successfully redevelop Superfund sites, achieve Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) compliance, and revitalize defense sites. Our environmental solutions balance regulatory requirements, engineering feasibility, and economics.

We provide the multifaceted services required to transform impaired sites into positive resources with:

  • Quantitative due diligence and liability assessments
  • Streamlined regulatory compliance
  • Comprehensive site investigation and remediation strategies
  • Sophisticated modeling for environmental risk
  • Successful approaches to protecting water and natural resources
  • Innovative and green reuse alternatives

As longtime experts in brownfields, ICF was one of the first environmental consulting firms to develop safe, successful solutions for contaminated sites. Today we continue to work with public, private, and nonprofit clients to explore cutting-edge solutions, including:

  • Innovative use of new technologies in cleanup
  • Sustainable environmental geotechnical solutions
  • Development of new risk models
  • Reuse strategies that minimize environmental footprint
  • Investigation of financial tools and incentives available for revitalization

Featured Resources

  • Site assessment (Phase I and II)—From  environmental records review through adaptive multimedia sampling and analysis programs, ICF performs American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)-compliant site assessments to provide a path to successful cleanup of potentially contaminated properties.
  • Remediation program management: design through optimization—ICF performs remediation design, construction management, operations & maintenance (O&M), oversight, and optimization, which are critical to effective site closure of contaminated properties within U.S. federal, state, and local requirements.
  • Brownfields redevelopment—Redevelopment of underutilized properties with potential environmental hazards is a win-win proposition for municipalities, land owners, and developers alike. ICF supports all aspects of Brownfields from planning, grant management, oversight, site assessment, remediation, and sustainable reuse.
  • Engineering: geotechnical and environmental—From geotechnical engineering evaluation of infrastructure, landfills, and dams/impoundments to environmental engineering design of remediation systems, ICF’s registered Professional Engineers (PEs) work with integrated teams including Professional Geologists (PGs), chemists, and geographic information systems (GIS)/CAD professionals to provide a full range of engineering design and evaluation services.
  • Risk assessment/risk management—ICF helps clients identify, quantify, and manage risks from potentially hazardous contaminants according to the latest U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state human health and ecological risk assessment guidelines.
  • Environmental due diligence/liability assessment—ICF understands the relative magnitude and cost of environmental liabilities, which is critical to property transfers, mergers and acquisitions, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
  • Technical review and oversight—ICF assists clients in mitigating the high risk and high cost of environmental liabilities and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations, applying our broad perspective and deep expertise in review of plans, reports, and recommendations, along with field oversight, data review, and data validation.
  • Multimedia sampling and analysis—ICF provides sampling and analysis expertise in air, groundwater, soil, sediment, surface water, and wastewater for Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Clean Air Act (CAA), Formerly Used Defense Sites (FUDS), and brownfields programs for site investigation, long-term monitoring, permitting, and more. ICF also brings niche experience with munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) and chemical warfare materiel.
