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 6emergency 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.
