The Golden Brick Award—201 Ellicott Street—This was an underutilized parcel in Buffalo that was converted into 2 projects–201 Ellicott Apartments and Braymiller Market.

C&S played a role in the New York State Brownfield Cleanup Program (BCP), including site assessments, remedial investigation planning and implementation, characterization of contaminants, delineation of contaminant impacts, and remedial construction observation and reporting.
Collegiate Category Winner: D’Youville University—C&S’s involvement included pre-acquisition of environmental due diligence, environmental site assessments, application and management of the project through the New York State BCP, remedial investigation planning and implementation characterization of contaminants, delineation of contaminant impacts, remedial construction observation and reporting.
