Project Value $4 million
Designed and Executed
Impact was challenged by the client to find a way to reduce the remedial budget estimates on this CEQR site.
Impact designed and executed a stratified random sampling program across portions of the site to identify what soils could be reused on-site in lieu of off-site disposal. Because of the uniqueness of the approach, the plan was heavily scrutinized by the site-owner, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). Integral to the remedial plan was the installation of a marker barrier system and a certified clean fill earthen cap across the entire project site. These components were designed to minimize incidental contact with soils remaining on the site at the conclusion of the remedial activities.
Following construction, Impact authored an Environmental Management Plan that provided for the environmental stewardship of the site by the associated homeowner association and condominium management companies. The application of the technique was a success; the project budget was successfully reduced. Portions of the project sites were remediated on a lump-sum contract basis with the client; none exceeded projected budgets. Impact handled all Health and Safety and Community Air Monitoring for the project during all construction phases.
The project became a 2005 Phoenix Award winner for Brownfield Redevelopment in Region 2.
