Roux's Work at a Glance

Posted on July 17, 2015

The diversity of work at Roux Associates allows you to be a part of many different projects for many different clients. You can work on projects from start to finish, or start on a project that has been through previous remediation. You can be involved with large projects in New York City, or small scale projects located in a suburban strip mall — one like this former dry cleaner site in northern New Jersey where Roux was needed.

A former dry cleaner site was put into our hands after it was previously undergoing an ineffective remediation for over 10 years under the direction of another consultant. Roux developed and implemented a cutting edge remedial program utilizing pneumatic fracturing using the injection of Zero-Valent Iron (ZVI) and Emulsified Vegetable Oil (EVO) to remediate groundwater and saturated soil, and using Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) to address unsaturated soil impacts. Our approach was implemented in less than two months, allowing the future tenant to occupy the retail space within the required schedule. In addition, no businesses in the active strip mall were interrupted by the remediation work.

Our remedy was very successful in remediating chlorinated solvents (over 95% reduction in mass), and this project is on track to be closed out years ahead of schedule, at a fraction of the cost of the previous consultant’s far less effective traditional remedial approach.

From our experiences, we have gained a true understanding of our clients’ needs, and we provide them with responsive project management and focused technical expertise. We are able to complete projects on time and on budget.
