CH2M HILL’s Approach to Industrial Land Redevelopment Vision Creation Site Planning Site Environmental Restoration linked to Site Reuse Completion of Site/Facility Development Establishing and Maintaining Institutional and Engineering Controls 4
Approach: Envisioning New Use Start with Creating a Vision Understand site conditions and land use demand Understand community or other stakeholder preferences Balance competing interests Integrate vision with site conditions Lock in the concept for Vision for Converting a Former Creosote Manufacturing Site to Mixed Use Development site reuse 5
Approach: Create a Vision Vision for Converting Oil Tank Farm Sites to More Optimal Urban Land Uses 6
Approach: Site Planning to Facility Development When the vision and schedule are established, the technical approach is then tailored to site-specific needs. Work success is measured against project and potentially sustainable metrics such as: waste minimization material reuse job creation natural resource conservation or enhancement Work is performed using one of two contract types: standard contract performance-based contract using key metrics for project success. 7
Experience and Examples CH2M HILL applies lessons learned from our property redevelopment experience to each new project. Types of projects completed by CH2M HILL to date: Former rail yards Large-scale or district-wide Former military facilities redevelopments of significance Former manufacturing, Portfolio of properties held by a processing or chemical plants single client Old landfills 8

Example #2 (continued) Former Canning Plant Results: Developed/sold in 30 months Unlocked $6.5M in land value Reduced remediation by $0.5M Rebuilt adjacent school $3M of City funding for local infrastructure improvements Catalyst for neighborhood revitalization - retail, housing Created jobs and increased tax base for municipality 12
Services to Achieve Reuse Goals Land Development Planning Market analysis to vision creation Decision making to sustainable results Site Environmental Conditions Assessment and Remediation Initial studies to full restoration Site Development Permitting and preliminary engineering to facilities construction Long-term Management of Residual Contamination Deed restriction preparation to maintenance of engineering controls 13
