DiPrete Engineering has been awarded the 2021 EBC James D.P. Farrell Award for Brownfields-Remediation Project of the Year for the Remediation and Redevelopment of the Former Kettle Point Oil Terminal.
The EBC James D.P. Farrell Award for Brownfields-Remediation Project of the Year was awarded to the Kettle Point development in recognition of the successful redevelopment of a former bulk petroleum storage and distribution terminal along the shores of East Providence, Rhode Island into a mixed-use commercial and residential complex.
DiPrete teamed with Churchill & Banks, SAGE Environmental, Inc., Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, M&G Commercial Real Estate, Orson and Brusini Ltd., Law Offices of John M. Boehnert Ltd., William Anthony Excavating, and United Retek to design and construct the project.
A mix of remedial strategies including on-site treatment and stabilization of impacted soils, re-use of the treated material, and petroleum recovery technologies allowed for the development of a 90,000 square foot surgical rehabilitation facility and 290-unit residential complex. In addition, a first-of-its-kind hybrid Settlement Agreement allowed portions of the property to be sold and redeveloped independent of the parent property thus enabling financing and phasing of the project.
