BETA Senior Associate Joseph McLoughlin’s expertise is clearly seen in the multitude of services he provides that protect human health and the environment. His work often sets the stage to bring new life to contaminated properties.

Joseph McLoughlin, II, LSP, LEP has over 28 years of experience in the environmental consulting field providing a wide range of environmental services to clients throughout New England. Joe serves a key senior role at BETA, directing a diverse staff of scientists, engineers, and risk assessors conducting environmental assessments, site remediation, Brownfield assessments, soil management, regulatory compliance, and indoor air quality assessments.

Joe holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, as well as a master’s degree in water resources from Stanford University. He joined BETA in 2004 and plays a critical role in assisting BETA’s municipal, private, and state agency clients with soil management on construction projects, contaminated site issues, and regulatory compliance. As an industry leader in New England for brownfields work, BETA is proud to have Joe leading a dedicated team for brownfields assessment and cleanup work throughout the region.

Recently, Joe attended a ribbon cutting for the City Pier Improvement Project in Fall River, a site he has been working on for over a decade. Situated on the shore of the Taunton River in Fall River, City Pier is a four-acre site with big potential. Joe and the BETA team have been involved in clean-up activities to help transform the vacant parcel into an accessible site which could be used for marina, recreation, dining, and waterfront amenities. Joe was especially excited to attend the event, noting that most of his projects offer immeasurable health benefits to the public but are often not seen or celebrated.

When he’s not at work, Joe enjoys being with his family at their vacation house in New Hampshire and spends as much time as he can rock climbing either outside or in his garage gym.
