Maximized dredging operations to achieve 70% efficiency for actual dredge time resulting in a reduced schedule and project costs.
Developed an optimized plan for dam removal so sediments could be “dry excavated,” allowing for higher production and a $2M cost savings.
Safely and successfully used multiple field crews simultaneously at two locations on a large-scale, complex project with 70 personnel over 100 miles apart.
Implemented an aggressive schedule to maximize limited ARRA funding and project schedule by operating 7 days a week with 70 personnel resulting early completion and a $1.7M savings.
Prepared an Emergency Response Plan for a mountainous, remote site which included a helicopter rescue emergency drill to better understand logistics and emergency response times prior to project start.
Developed a strategy to minimize manual dismantlement and maximize the use of commercial demolition equipment to demolish 15 structures and process equipment leading to a final project cost at $2M under the budgetary estimate.
Successfully mitigated safety risks including locating and plugging sinkholes and removing large boulders in a heavily karst terrain required for the construction of a 16-acre landfill cell.
