Permit Tracking - We'll Follow Up.

Epsilon will track your project's environmental permits and approvals. From the start of construction through project close-out and beyond, Epsilon helps clients manage project schedules, deadlines and mitigation measures. 

For  many high-profile developers, universities, and utilities  Epsilon leads the
effort to:
  • Follow up on filing deadlines;
  • Meet project commitments;
  • Track mitigation requirements;
  • Act as the liaison with local, state and federal regulators; and
  • Ensure that permit conditions are being complied with by the site contractor and project team.
We have led the permit tracking for several complicated, multi-year projects. These include real estate and utility projects. Our schedule/matrix methodology ensures permit commitments do not get missed.

Epsilon Celebrates Two 2019 Preservation Achievement Awards

In May, the Boston Preservation Alliance announced the 2019 Preservation Achievement award winners. According to the Boston Preservation Alliance this year's award winners "show that buildings designed for the needs of people from past centuries can be renewed to fit the needs of a contemporary world."

Epsilon was excited to be among the team members recognized for two of the award-winning projects. Epsilon provided historic tax credit and environmental services for Boston Volvo and the Longfellow Bridge

Boston Volvo was recognized for its two-year restoration of the former
International Harvester building - which at one point sold farm equipment and motor trucks. Boston Volvo brought the building back to its original use as a vehicle showroom and office, which led to the creation of a successful showroom while preserving the historic fabric. With assistance from Epsilon, the project team was able to successfully secure historic tax credits to assist with financing the restoration project.

Epsilon was also on the team that worked to restore the Longfellow Bridge - an iconic landmark in the City of Boston. For this project, Epsilon developed a detailed Noise Control Plan for the four-year repair and reconstruction of the bridge, which spans the Charles River between Boston and Cambridge.

All the projects will be recognized at a celebration this fall on October 21st at the Revere Hotel.
 EventsWhere We've Been (And Where We're Going)
Spring and early summer are always a busy time for us with events. This year was no different. We spoke at, attended and exhibited at a number of events throughout the country.
Exhibited  - We exhibited at the following events:
  • AWEA WINDPOWER 2019 Conference: Epsilon was excited to continue our streak of exhibiting at what was our 13th consecutive AWEA WINDPOWER Conference. Attending on behalf of Epsilon were Rob O'NealRich Lampeter and Alison Me. It was a busy week which provided a great opportunity to learn more about the wind industry and meet with colleagues and clients.
  • IPPNY Spring Conference: Principals David Klinch and Dale Raczynski as well as Senior Consultant Dorothy Buckoski attended and staffed our booth at the IPPNY Spring Conference this year. We regularly exhibit at this event, which includes sessions on the latest energy regulations in the State of New York and provides the ability to connect with our clients and colleagues in New York.

We also regularly attend this conference and each year look forward to the informational panels and speakers that focus on the energy sector.
Presented - In April, Managing Principal Rob O'Neal spoke at the Electric Power Research Institute inaugural Environmental Aspects of Renewables (EAR) Workshop in Chicago, Illinois. The workshop featured presentations from experts on a variety of research topics related to the wind and solar energy industries. Rob presented during the session on wind and solar public acceptance addressing noise and shadow flicker issues associated with wind and solar projects.

Attended - In June, we attended the  U.S. Offshore Wind Conference , which once again took place in Boston. Attending for Epsilon were Ted BartenRob O'Neal, Maria Hartnett, Holly Johnston, and Darrell Oakley, all of whom are actively involved in the wind energy industry. This was a great conference given all the recent happenings around Vineyard Wind and provided the opportunity to meet up with our clients and teaming partners in this emerging industry.
