Protecting the Earth and its Resources

Cleaning up and preserving the environment are essential to making the world safe for future generations. Working with federal, state and local government agencies, and public utilities, DRM develops cost-effective solutions to protect, preserve and restore our air, water and soil quality, turning environmental liabilities into assets.

Our expert professionals apply the latest technology and thinking to help public sector clients meet their environmental goals. Our services include environmental impact assessments, permitting and regulatory compliance, remedial design, program and construction management and other environmental cleanup activities related to the identification, characterization and remediation of hazardous waste sites.

We provide air quality monitoring and modeling, and we design, operate and maintain air emissions control systems. In the area of water resources, DRM provides a broad range of services for water quality, flood control, wetlands and watershed management projects.


DRM provided design phase cost estimating services for the demolition and hazardous waste abatement of Buildings #1, #2, #3 and #80 at the U.S. Naval Submarine Base in New London, CT.  DRM porivided detailed cost estimates using unit prices broken down to labor and material and further broken down per building.  The cost estimate reflected detailed quantities consistent with the level of design (35% submittal, 50% submittal, 100% submittal) within the Architectural, Structural, Civil, Mechanical and Electrical disciplines.  DRM’s cost estimate came within 5% of the actual contract award amount.  Hazardous materials such as asbestos, lead-based paint, household chemicals, and other environmental pollutants were a significant factor in each demolition project. Buildings 1,2,3, and 80 are located on the lower submarine base, within the Explosive Quantity Safety Distance arcs that extend from the existing weapons handling piers.  The buildings were located within the 100 year floodplain and built in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s , and were assessed for historical significance in 1992.
