During excavation, we discovered significant “hot spots” of petroleum contamination running through the site. This contamination was scattered across the site and required over-excavation, export, and replacement. Not knowing how to “schedule” these discoveries posed a significant schedule risk, with delay estimates of up to 45 days. But Pinkard analyzed the frequency and pattern of the discoveries and extrapolated how many more cubic yards of contaminated soil would have to be removed.
Armed with this knowledge, our team pre-coordinated manifest tickets with the trucking company, allowing the soil to be hauled away immediately after each discovery. Rather than losing 45 days, Pinkard kept the project on schedule.
