Client Challenge

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation administers an environmental remediation and restoration contract across its nine regions throughout the state. NYSDEC uses this contracting mechanism to issue task orders to selected consultants on an on-call basis to address cleanup issues at diverse project sites. GES, currently serving under its third consecutive contract, is active in seven regions, including the metropolitan areas of New York City, Long Island, Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo.

GES Solution

GES’ on-call services include site investigation, remedial design, construction management, demolition, and site management of contaminated petroleum, industrial, and landfill sites. To ensure that consultants are prepared to quickly respond to state needs, the contract requires immediate access to construction and remediation equipment, as well as personnel and other resources, in close proximity to potential call-out sites. Assignments also include several long-term operation, maintenance, and monitoring (OM&M) engagements for water treatment systems in place at state-listed Superfund sites.

Client Value

GES has partnered with NYSDEC staff to implement remedial solutions since 2003. GES’ program is directed by a regional operations manager and executed by teams deployed from multiple downstate and upstate locations. A responsive contract management approach, favorable geographic presence, and a history of strong project execution have enabled GES to manage almost a dozen project assignments at a given time.
