The F&R Difference
Assess. F&R helps clients identify risk via assessment and inspection services in the project planning phase. Early identification prior to project initiation is vital to reduce costly delays later in the process. It also provides additional time to navigate challenging regulatory situations and make plans to address any potential risk issues related to reputation and public scrutiny. Assessment services an be performed on individual properties or linear impact corridors.
Manage. F&R works with Clients to quantify and cope with risks identified during the assessment phase of the project by developing plans to mitigate or manage environmental
challenges. Communication with clients, regulators, and stakeholders is the key to successfully developing a project-specific plan and also to ensuring that it is performed as designed. F&R’s management services include both operational and technical solutions.
Consult. Our consultation services are focused on helping clients avoid, mitigate, and adapt to the risks presented by their operations. Our focus is on understanding your operational needs, business culture, and resulting risk tolerance. We assemble project teams of subject matter experts including industrial hygienists, project managers, trainers, Certified Industrial Hygienists, Professional Geologists, Engineers and Wetlands Scientists to help navigate the challenging regulatory framework associated with new and unexpected environmental obstacles.

Lead renovation, repair & painting training
For Contractors and Renovation Professionals – Be Safe…Get Certified
Don’t Be Fined! The EPA actively enforces rules for contractors who renovate or repair housing,
childcare facilities, or schools built before 1978. Under these regulations, contractors and workers must have documented training to practice lead-safe work practices to reduce potential lead exposures during renovation and repair activities. The Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule affects contractors and potentially property managers, landlords and others who disturb known or presumed lead-based paint during renovation. With offices centrally located throughout the mid-Atlantic, F&R is pleased to offer EPA accredited Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Training.
