HHS was retained to provide project management services for this Response Action (RA), which has a budget of about $60 million. The site is on the St. Louis River, approximately four river miles upstream of Lake Superior. The site includes approximately 255 acres of land and river embayments, wetlands, and shipping slips. The aquatic portion of the site is approximately 90 acres. Approximately 800 people live within one mile of the site. Onsite sediments are contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), remnants of historical pig iron, coking plants, coal refiners, and tar manufacturers. The ROD requires a combination of dredging and in situ capping along with the construction of an underwater contained disposal facility. HHS is serving as the representative on site during the RA. HHS is also responsible for overall project construction management services, which includes constructability reviews, pre-qualification and bidphase services for RA Contractors, and on-site construction administration and management during the Response Actions. As project Construction Manager, HHS prepares overall project cost budgets, schedules, and scope documents to ensure proper coordination with Regulatory Agencies and project Team members. During RA activities, HHS is responsible for the daily oversight of the RA Contractors, and reports on the daily progress of the work. HHS also participates in construction management services as necessary during the Response Actions. HHS reports directly to the Project Director, and coordinates efforts with the other project Team members. As Project Managers, our objective is to control and mitigate our client’s project-related risks to preserve their rights for cost recovery.
