OTIE Forges Ahead with Two Navy Safety Awards

The Department of the Navy selected OTIE to receive the ROICC San Francisco Bay, Safety Through Awards and Recognition (STAR) Safety Excellence Award for outstanding safety awareness during execution of two NAVFAC Southwest CTOs. The Navy gives this award only to companies that demonstrate a proactive safety posture. OTIE has shown our commitment to safe work practices and has met the high standards that the NAVFAC and ROICC SF Bay Area outlined for safety on the jobsite.

The awards were given for the following two projects:

  • Remedial Design and Remedial Action Installation Restoration Site 35, AOC 3, 10, and 12 at Alameda Point, Alameda, CA. OTIE conducted this project as a task order under our $120M NAVFAC Southwest PERMAC contract. OTIE managed the remedial design and remedial action associated with removal of heptachlor and lead impacted soil. We safely excavated and remotely stockpiled 355 CY of heptachlor and lead-contaminated soil located in a residential area. We restored areas with clean backfill, repaved hard surfaces, and obtained site closure “no further action.
  • Groundwater Monitoring Well Decommissioning at Moffett Field, CA. OTIE conducted this CTO under our $50M NAVFAC Southwest EMAC contract. We safely decommissioned 13 groundwater monitoring wells including preparing work plans, health and safety plans, and well destruction applications through the local water district.
