Success Story

Navigating Crossroads

How ACED helped transform a contaminated site into the thriving Crossroads Commerce Park

What does it take to transform a heavily contaminated 78-acre former smelting plant that crosses two counties into an award-winning industrial development? Years of navigating complex political and environmental terrain, unfaltering focus and keeping everyone’s eyes on the prize. 

A friendly coffee with ACED ended our long site search and kept us in Adams County. The ACED team made all the right introductions and 8 months later, we purchased and renovated our new home for training the next generation electrician.
