The TraceAir Solution
This residential project site previously held a paint factory, which resulted in contaminated soils of various types across the site. Originally, consultants estimated there were approximately
200 cubic yards of contaminated soils, however the team has off-hauled 15,000 cubic yards to date. Tracking and labeling this material is essential for both compliance and cost reasons. This project contains multiple classes of contaminated soils that range in costs from $32/ton to $138/ton to off-haul. Any miscalculations can result in thousands of dollars of overpayment. Without TraceAir, the team would rely on hand drawn maps, manual tape measurements, and truck counts to estimate the quantities.
Using TraceAir's Measure Stockpiles tool, the team was able to track, measure, and label materials on a weekly basis using high-resolution aerial images. In addition, TraceAir helped the client to achieve accurate cost estimates for off-hauling these contaminated soils. The client was easily able to back check contractor billing, which created true transparency between the owner and contractor.
