Decreased complete and partial facility decommissioning costs by 80%. The automotive company had reduced production requirements creating underutilized capacity which caused several facilities to sit dormant. After analyzing the existing decommissioning process the entire decommissioning model was redesigned, a key factor to our success was to maintain compliance with the regulatory agencys requirements. The first project exceeded all the corporate goals by reducing their costs by over 80%.

Reorganized vendor base to fit current needs, reduced annual fees by $7Million, in the first four years. The Companies environmental vendor base was stagnate in their approach to resolving environmental issues. A matrix was created to evaluate the Top 50 US Environmental Firms and the existing vendor base. After completing interviews and tests, the vendor base was reduced from 20 companies to 4, 3 of which were part of the original vendor list. With our new vendors we reinvented our business model which reduced the annual fees by $7 Million. The Corporate Award for Innovated Thinking was awarded for this work.
