Since our inception more than 20 years ago, we have provided comprehensive project and program management services. These services have typically been provided for clients without the expertise, time, resources, or inclination to manage complex environmental energy and sustainability projects. KEM has provided services under contracts giving our personnel a high degree of autonomy, as well as responsibility, for the successful outcome of the work. We understand what is needed to keep our clients informed, how to manage other consultants and contractors, and how to work with regulatory officials, financiers and attorneys to maximize outcomes.
For a major pharmaceutical company, KEM provided program management services at a highly-ranked NPL Superfund site. We coordinated the engineering design, subsurface investigation, and the remedial construction. KEM represented this company at meetings with the EPA, the state environmental protection agency and the public. KEM prepared and submitted all regulatory agency deliverable documents and certified the installation and operational status of the remedial systems.
For the School District of Philadelphia, KEM provides comprehensive program management services for PCB transformers at locations throughout the city. KEM also managed a comprehensive risk-based, lead-in-drinking-water program at over 300 locations. Working with personnel from the School District, KEM developed, identified and prioritized project goals and objectives and was responsible for its implementation over a period of years. KEM’s activities have included the development of technical work scopes, schedules, budgets, technical management and oversight of remedial contractors, interface with regulatory authorities, as well as the development of applications for State funding to assist with projects being performed under Pennsylvania’s Act 2 and other Brownfields legislation.
