Cuyahoga Valley Industrial Center

Cleveland, OH

Hull & Associates is part of an asset management team for an Ohio Job Ready Sites (JRS) project funded through the Ohio Department of Development, the City of Cleveland, and private sources.

The property, known as the Cuyahoga Valley Industrial Center (CVIC), is a former coke plant situated in the industrial valley near downtown Cleveland.  Hull’s primary responsibility to the project is to manage the project’s environmental, geotechnical and civil engineering components during property redevelopment.

Through a competitive bidding process, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) selected a contractor to remove 300,000 cubic yards of former dredged material from a local Confined Disposal Facility (CDF 10B).   As requested by Ohio EPA and in efforts to position the CVIC as the most cost effective location for the placement of the CDF 10B material, Hull drafted a Materials Management Plan (MMP) which provided analysis, quality control procedures and tracking of the materials delivery to the CVIC location.

Hull worked with the USACE and the Ohio EPA Division of Surface Water, Division of Solid and Hazardous Waste Management, and Division of Emergency and Remedial Response to fine tune the MMP so that the Director of the Ohio EPA could issue an authorizing document permitting the beneficial use of the material at the Cuyahoga Valley Industrial Center location.
