For forty years LaBella has provided comprehensive environmental consulting and engineering services for our partners.  Our environmental services are designed to provide practical solutions for businesses in a responsible and cost effective manner. 
LaBella's in house asbestos laboratory, drilling services, and construction resources allow us to provide timely full service design build solutions for our partners.  

Through LaBella Environmental LLC, we can offer optimal schedule and cost control for our clients’ projects, and have eliminated the additional fees associated with the use of multiple contractors.


Environmental Due Diligence

The goal of the Due Diligence program is to provide the client with a thorough and well thought out due diligence product, conducted to ASTM and USEPA AAI standards, and tailored to the specific needs of the individual property transaction. LaBella recognizes the need for a flexible due diligence approach, that may need to identify and quantify non-ASTM related environmental issues, such as asbestos, lead based paint and lead in drinking water, for residentially utilized or pre-demolition property transactions. LaBella has certified inspectors and an in-house laboratory.

Regulated Building Materials & Environmental Compliance

LaBella has provided inspection, testing, abatement design and monitoring services for more than 25 years. The objective of pre-renovation abatement is to remove asbestos, regulated materials, and universal wastes from work areas prior to reconstruction by other trades, preventing scheduling delays and saving our clients significant cost increases. Experienced project monitors provide rapid regulatory interpretation and guidance when conditions present unique challenges.

Brownfield Programs

The foundation of our program is our staff’s experience with clean-up programs that are tailored to the future use of a property. This experience allows us to utilize a hands-on approach with the regulatory agencies to evaluate the level of clean-up needed at a property and provide solutions that are compatible with our clients’ budgets. In order to take advantage of Brownfield opportunities, releases of liability, grant funding, and/or tax credits, the private participant or municipality must enroll in the appropriate program. LaBella has an excellent working relationship with numerous environmental attorneys and grant writers, and can assemble a project team for seamless entry into the appropriate Brownfield program.

Energy, Utility & Natural Gas

Our energy, utility and natural gas group provides our clients with a range of expertise in wetland delineation and permitting services, as well as erosion and sedimentation control, and wind services. Our environmental wetlands professionals show expertise with all applicable State and Federal guidelines, while our wind team provides land use and comprehensive planning, State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR), the preparation and/or review of environmental documents, specialized technical studies, economic analysis, public meeting planning, and agency coordination.
