Absolute Resource Associates Donates Expertise for Burley Farm
While SELT is an expert at natural resources, we know we’re not experts with buildings and their potential hazards – including those posed by a 200+ year old farmhouse. Thankfully, Portsmouth-based Absolute Resource Associates (ARA) responded to our request for help and generously contributed more than $5,000 in technical services to evaluate the farmhouse and outbuildings at the Burley Farm for lead paint, mold, and asbestos.
For ARA, it was an easy decision to donate their professional services. “We’ve been following SELT’s activities for the past few years and are thrilled that they are so committed to preserving the beauty and viability of our local environmental resources,” comments Guy Sylvester, CEO of Absolute Resource Associates. “When they called us about the Burley Farm, we were happy to support their project by donating our time and services. The historic Burley farmhouse is in need of some TLC, and in order to move forward with any plans for renovation and preservation, it was necessary to evaluate the building for lead, mold and asbestos. ARA donated our services because ARA and SELT share many of the same objectives, as well as a common passion for preserving and promoting a clean, healthy environment.”
SELT appreciate donations of all types including in-kind services.
