Brad Grimsted has successfully managed environmental projects for more than twenty-nine years. He is an expert in toxicology, risk assessment, and project management. Brad’s business acumen and his focus on redevelopment during the cleanup process have set him apart from other project managers. He is a pragmatic and practical thinker who often comes up with innovative, “out-of-the box” ideas that solve environmental problems. He excels at building and nurturing teams and relationships, and he is committed to providing our customers with world-class customer service. Brad is currently the project manager overseeing the cleanup of a large-scale redevelopment project in California. He also managed the remediation and redevelopment of an 841-acre hazardous waste site in Washington State (one of the largest Model Toxics Control Act (MTCA) sites in the state). The former explosives manufacturing site was redeveloped into a beautiful 18-hole championship-class golf course. Brad's focus on redevelopment, his ability to lead teams, and his commitment to returning hazardous sites back to active use results in satisfied customers, regulators, and stakeholders.
