Pare provided wetlands consulting, hydrologic and hydraulic analysis, and environmental permitting services for the New England Revolution training facility. The new $35-million complex spans 68 acres and includes three new grass fields, including one equipped with heating technology, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

The development of the site was constrained by a variety of natural conditions including bordering and isolated wetlands, intermittent and perennial streams, numerous potential vernal pools, and irregular topography. Pare completed site-wide wetland delineations, verified the wetland boundaries, completed a Potential Vernal Pool evaluation and a Riverfront Area analysis, prepared environmental permit applications, and prepared a Hydrologic and Hydraulic Study for an unnamed intermittent stream crossing the property.

Wetland mitigation included restoration of approximately 79,258 SF of Riverfront Area through invasive species management and native plantings; intermittent stream corridor restoration to improve continuity along 206 LF of stream channel; restoration of 12,032 SF of previously filled wetlands; and construction of compensatory flood storage. Pare wetland scientists provided onsite construction observation during the excavation and plantings of the mitigation projects.
