Credere has had the privelage of working on projects with many great clients over the years and we sincerly appreciate all client feedback (whether positive or negative) we recieve that lets us know when we are successfully making a difference or where we need to improve. Below are several comments and testimonials that Credere has recieved from our clients and are proud to share.


“The work of Credere has helped us to make our vision of a modular fabrications facility on the former Eastern Fine paper site a reality.  We have been impressed with the work of Credere, not only for their technical abilities for environmental and redevelopment work, but at listening to and being sensitive to our specific needs.  Credere has been very good at walking us through the Brownfields process, explaining the issues and constraints of the site, and presenting information in a format that is understandable.”

- Ernie Kilbride, Director of Project Development
Cianbro Corporation


“We are extremely pleased with the Brownfields program that we are working with [Credere] on, not only for their extensive knowledge of the various EPA Brownfields Programs and technical abilities, but also their economic development ideas, ability to leverage future funding, and the ability to interface and educate other municipalities, property owners and the public.”

- Paul Schumacher, Executive Director
Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission


“Rip Patten of Credere brings incredible enthusiasm to his work, and a determination to make difficult projects a reality even if it means going beyond the normal scope of an environmental engineer.  He is a constant source of new ideas.  Beyond his skill as an engineer, Rip’s friendly disposition, good-nature and ultra quick responsiveness make him a joy to work with.”

-Sam Spencer, Spencer Monks Development


“Credere went right to work in the region, and in just three months completed a regional Brownfields inventory, assisted RPC and Advisory Committee with developing site selection criteria, and met with municipalities, property owners, and other stakeholders to explain the program.  The RPC’s Brownfields Program is off to a strong start because of our partnership with Credere.”

-Theresa Walker, Brownfields Program Coordinator Rockingham Planning Commission


“The Eastern Fine Paper site is currently being redeveloped into a modular fabrication facility by Cianbro Constructors.  This project will generate 500 jobs and … leverage $50 million in private investment.  Credere’s ability to explain the Brownfields process and program to developers as well as present an effective remediation strategy for the site (the site needs to be developed in 6 months) was instrumental to the project moving forward.”

-D’arcy Main Boyington, Economic Development Director
City of Brewer


“In my company’s project in Biddeford [Riverdam Mill Redevelopment], I could not have asked for a better partner than Credere Associates.  Credere staff possess the creativity, determination, and knowledge needed to help turn a vague idea of redeveloping these types of properties into a practical reality.”
