Former Textile Manufacturing Facility - Georgia

Value of Project: $50,000

Scope: Department of Community Affairs Environmental Due Diligence

The facility/site consists of approximately 4 acres containing a wooden framed building with approximately 120,000 square feet of floor area; the building was originally constructed in the 1940’s (with subsequent additions) and was utilized to manufacture quality tufted and woven products until 2004. A non-profit organization proposed to rehabilitate the building for multi-family apartment housing.

Maxis was retained to perform the environmental due diligence required by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) to apply for the low-income tax credits/grants through the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs. As required by DCA/HUD, Maxis performed the following environmental due diligence activities as part of the application process:

  • ASTM E1527 – Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)
  • Wetland Delineation
  • Floodplain/Floodway Survey
  • Endangered Species Evaluation
  • Historic Preservation Evaluation
  • Noise Assessment and Attenuation Plan
  • Asbestos Containing Material Inspection
  • Lead-Based Paint Inspection
  • Radon Survey
  • Vapor Intrusion Assessment and Mitigation Plan
  • ASTM E1903 – Phase II ESA

Additionally, Maxis conducted closure activities for two (15k and 30k), heating oil underground storage tanks (USTs), and submitted a Release Notification to the Georgia Hazardous Site Response Program (HSRP) associated with chemical solvents previously utilized a the facility.

Maxis was able to complete the aforementioned activities and deliver the final due diligence report for the DCA application in less than 4 months, which is an extremely accelerated schedule based on the work completed. Subsequently, the site received a No-Further-Action and a No-Listing letter from the HSRP; DCA/HUD funding is pending.
