NTH has been part of the process, even before groundbreaking, when they were called off of the engineering “bench” to assist with pre-acquisition due diligence studies as well as pre-engineering data collection and evaluation. In addition, NTH conducted all environmental characterization and response activities in accordance with state and federal regulations and had to do so quickly as the project schedule was aggressive. NTH cleared environmental hurdles to keep the project rolling and applied practical geo-environmental expertise, keen regulatory understanding and emergency response services to minimize delays and adhere to the project schedule. Since that time, an NTH crew has been working on-site overseeing and monitoring the hazardous materials removal, building demolition, mass excavation as well as caisson installation and substructure construction activities.
