Project Description

GRANT was contracted to plan and execute a site assessment as part of a Voluntary Cleanup Program to remove existing toxins from the contaminated site of an old gas station, and receive grant monies, where new luxury condos were built. GRANT’s engineers collaborated closely with the construction team while emergency remediation took place, ensuring that development never stopped. Constant communication with the Office of Environmental Remediation (OER) helped close the tank’s spill case quickly without impacting the project’s timeline or its budget. GRANT also provided baseline and continuous vibration monitoring services and TR-1, 2 & 8 Special Inspections. Our team was constantly on site during the excavation process, monitoring the progress and successfully preparing the report. GRANT was retained to develop a Site Management Plan and ongoing SSDS monthly monitoring, in addition to concrete core drilling for a Builders Pavement Plan and sidewalk work permit.
