New construction or modernization of existing facilities and infrastructure often requires the acquisition of private properties. Volkert’s team of real estate specialists has experience in supporting state departments of transportation, public utilities, federal agencies, local and municipal governments and private industry to obtain property needed for all types of projects.
Our experience includes acquisition of rights-of-way for roads and bridges, fee lands transmission and distribution rights for electrical utilities, pipeline corridors, airport locations and expansions, light rail projects, and large scale urban projects.
Volkert has significant experience in ensuring compliance with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended and required on all federally assisted projects. We have successfully relocated hundreds of displacees on numerous projects and understand the intricacies of the relocation assistance program.
