Where it all started.

It all started in late 1997 when a developer bemoaned to Harm the large, non-refundable option price paid for the former Fullerton Lumber property. Newly released environmental reports were extremely negative about the prospects of a cleanup. The former landfill alone had 3 contractor cleanup bids of around $15,000,000, and Imperial Oil stated remediation of its contamination was technologically impossible. Harm disagreed.

He was confident that the former landfill (currently North Shore Auto Mall could be remediated for a fraction of the contractor bids; and, Imperial Oil reports relied too heavily on modelling and conventional thinking. The developer was anxious to get underway; but Harm’s then-employer, SRK – Robinson Inc., was unconvinced. Acting on the courage of his convictions, Harm took a big financial risk to buy out his team and launched one of BC’s most impressive Brownfield remediation projects.
