To Whom Much is Given, Much is Expected.
STEWARDSHIP OF PEASE
Ensuring Pease continues to benefit future generations is a critical component of the work of the Pease Development Authority. The Engineering Department’s role in this mission is to implement environmental protection programs, administer land use controls, conduct property repair and maintenance, and monitor construction activities.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION PROGRAMS
Utilizing Federal funding, the Engineering and Facilities Department has initiated several projects focused on improving surface water and air quality at and around Pease. We also have ongoing programs that are not federally funded, included monitoring stormwater discharges from Pease under the EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System.
During the construction process, the Engineering Department coordinates the activities of clients, utilities and municipal personnel involved in the project. The department also monitors the effectiveness of erosion control and other measures to protect valuable natural resources throughout Pease and guards against excessive land clearing and ensures a high degree of quality landscaping.
PROPERTY REPAIR & MAINTENANCE
The Engineering & Maintenance Departments develop and bid out several contracts to provide services in conjunction with property repair and maintenance. Most of these contracts are multi-year, but require a considerable effort in terms of monitoring and coordinating the services.
We provide the necessary planning, design and construction of infrastructure to maintain the attractiveness of Pease to potential tenants. The Facilities and Engineering Department has secured more than $85 million in Federal grants for upgrades at Pease, and works to obtain local and state approvals for construction, air emissions and other processes.
