Project Descriptions

Endpoint Solutions' staff has successfully managed numerous projects ranging from small site assessments to multi-million dollar brownfield investigations and remediations. The following are a few examples:

CNG Fueling Station

Edwardsville, Illinois

GAIN Clean Fuel, a leading compressed natural gas (CNG) provider out of Appleton, WI, targeted the City of Edwardsville, IL for one of their CNG stations. Endpoint staff served as the Professional Engineers and took the lead on local and state permitting, civil design, and construction management and oversight of the project. The CNG station was the largest station GAIN Clean Fuel had built at the time including three (3) compressors, nine (9) storage spheres, and four (4) fueling bays. The system was designed totarget local fleets, but is also open to the general public. The project was fast-tracked in order to meet tight operation goals and was open for business within six (6) months of authorization.

Former Iceport Properties

Cudahy, Wisconsin

Endpoint assisted the City of Cudahy with the environmental investigation, regulatory negotiation, remediation and closure of the 29-acre Former Iceport Property brownfield site. Endpoint compiled all historical data for the site from over 20 years of investigation activities by previous consultants, performed soil and groundwater investigations as needed to fill remaining data gaps and developed a comprehensive Remedial Action Plan for the site which would allow the site to quickly and cost-effectively be remediated and prepared for eventual redevelopment. Endpoint helped Cudahy secure nearly $500K in Wisconsin Ready-for-Reuse and Wisconsin Department of Commerce grant funding to offset the planned remedial costs including the import of approximately 70,000 cubic yards of clean fill to construct a site-wide direct-contact exposure barrier. Additional remedial measures included strategic in-situ chemical oxidation injections. Site closure has been obtained and site redevelopment activities by the City of Cudahy have been initiated.

Former Manufacturing Site

Black River Falls, Wisconsin

Subsurface investigation activities addressing soil and groundwater impacts had been conducted by Endpoint professionals at the former Cummins Filtration (Cummins) Machine Technology Center (MTC) Site. Over time, various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and several chlorinated VOCs (CVOCs) had been detected in the samples; however, toluene and benzene were the primary contaminants of concern.

Endpoint was contracted to complete an asbestos, lead-based paint and universal waste survey of the Site building in preparation for demolition and subsurface remediation. Following completion of the Site survey, Endpoint prepared the demolition, abatement and remediation specifications and bidding documents. Endpoint was contracted as the general contractor for the demolition, abatement and remediation phases of activities, with responsibilities including oversight and long term monitoring. Green and sustainable demolition practices included deconstruction of several of the structures for re-use and recycling of the majority of the remaining materials. These services were performed through a lump sum contract with expedited timelines. Activities completed to facilitate a cost-effective remediation of the Site included obtaining a non-hazardous waste determination from the WDNR for Site soils which ultimately allowed remediation including soil excavation with offsite disposition and the placement of a chemical oxidant in the subsurface, to occur. Long term groundwater monitoring is now being completed to assess the effects of the remedial actions.



Chemical Facility Engineering & Permitting

St. Louis, Missouri

Endpoint provided consulting and professional engineering services to Jost Chemical (Jost) of St. Louis, MO for the design and installation of a $2.5M hazardous chemical storage system.  Jost undertook the project to be able to improve process efficiency, employee safety and raw material costs by being able to receive and store some of their highest throughput chemicals in bulk.  These chemicals included nitric acid, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, caustic soda, caustic potash and ammonium hydroxide.

Jost retained Endpoint to prepare a conceptual design, perform a cost (ROI) analysis,  complete a detailed design and equipment selection, administer contractor bidding and award, obtain necessary permits, and provide construction oversight.  Additional tasks performed by Endpoint included air permitting review and Risk Management Plan development for the new system and SPCC Plan preparation for other chemical storage activities at the facility.

The raw material storage system included the construction of a new 8,000 SF tank building to match existing structures, integrated secondary containment, eight 20,000 gallon stainless steel aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) and controls, distribution piping system and supports, a tanker unloading area with canopy and containment and other miscellaneous site improvements.

Endpoint designed the system to comply with all applicable federal, State and local requirements and regulations as well as other recognized and generally accepted good engineering practices within the industry.  Construction for the project is scheduled for completion in Fall of 2016.
