Signature Projects By Steve Rich and Our Sister Companies

Signature Projects

From our home teams to Habitat for Humanity

Proud as we are to service our New Jersey and New York homeowners in their oil tank removals, repairing septic systems and in all our work as environmental contractors, we’ve also enjoyed being an integral part of some specific ‘signature projects’ in the Northeast area.

With our sister company Holes Infrastructure Solutions, we have been instrumental in expediting many recent projects that make the Garden State and its surrounding environs the epicenter of culture, sports and outdoor activities (we do like to support our local teams!) as well as paving — literally — a better life for our lower income neighbors.

Some of the organizations and projects listed below might be recognized by folks beyond our immediate area… they certainly are important to us prideful New Jersians and New Yorkers.

The Devils Find A Home

New Jersey DevilsWorking with Langan Engineering — Steve Rich Environmental Contractors (SREC) completed all the test holes for the geotechnical investigation of the new Prudential Center, opened in Newark, N.J. in 2007. Utilizing backhoes and trackhoes, SREC excavated up to 20 feet deep so the geotechnical team could test soils to determine if the sub surface could support the new arena.

We also completed the utility removal (‘daylighting’) for the razing of over 20 buildings for what has been called the “revitalization of Newark”. Prior to mobilization, all utilities had to be identified, as buildings on busy Broad Avenue and Market Street in downtown Newark were being razed and it was imperative these utilities were not damaged.

“The Rock”, as we New Jersians have come to call it, is the go-to-arena of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris and Passaic counties in North Jersey, home to the state’s New Jersey Devils professional hockey team (that’s a three time Stanley Cup winning professional hockey team!) as well as concerts and other arena-sized events.

The Jets Need To Train

New York Jets Sub-contractor Steve Rich Environmental Contractors completed test holes for the New York Jets new training facility in Floram Park, New Jersey. SREC set to work on this time-rushed job utilizing vacuum excavating to ensure that no utilities were damaged at the new Jets training facility. With the start of the season looming at the new Metlife Stadium in the Meadowlands — the same stadium that will host the 2014 SuperBowl! — we got to work making sure that the spot the Jet’s organization picked was ready for the scheduled start to Jet’s training.

Going To Bat For The Yankees

27-Time World Champion New York YankeesThe New York Yankees and the City of New York worked expeditiously to raze the old Yankee Stadium, and Steve Rich Environmental Contractors was hired through prime contractors to remove all the hazardous waste at the site — old blue paint cans, lighting ballasts, fluorescent lights, pcb’s, lubricants, etc. We also cleaned all the remaining underground heating oil tanks, readying the old ball park for its final decommissions. It was Steve Rich who really said ‘lights out’ at the completion of the clean-up, seeing to it that all of the Stadium’s famous outdoor lighting, having had illuminated so many night games, was recycled by EPA approved contractors.

Volunteering Out Of Habitat

Habitat for HumanityThe Passaic Chapter of Habitat for Humanity put out a call for bids to break ground on new homes and for specific sidewalk revitalization on N. 2nd Street. The quotes from various N.J. contractors just didn’t jell with Habitat’s limited budget, but our sister company Holes Solutions volunteered a ‘gift-in-kind’ of manpower, expertise, and machinery to an approximate cost of $46,000 and saw the Habitat for Humanity project to completion.

Contributing to the betterment of our neighborhoods and neighbors, on whatever scale, for recreational, home or professional purposes is why we do what we do here at both Steve Rich Environmental Contractors and Holes Solutions.

We hired Steve Rich Environmental Contractors to remove an above ground oil tank after we converted from an old oil boiler to a forced air system in our property in Montclair, NJ. They did a fantastic job not only with the removal process but also coordinating with the local township inspector to ensure the permit was closed. Their pricing is very competitive compared other companies. If you are looking for a professional and efficient tank removal company, I highly recommend Steve Rich Environmental Contractors.

Felix and his team (Lisa, Beth, Glenn, Danny and Perry) are fantastic. The oil tank removal process can certainly be quite complex. The folks at Steve Rich made it rather seamless. Everyone there is very responsive and accurate and quite pleasant to speak to. Highly recommend Felix and his team for oil tank removals.
Holly Tracy
We're very happy we chose Steve Rich Environmental Contractors to remove our above-ground oil tank. The office team was responsive, timely, thorough and friendly, giving us all the information and documents we needed to initiate the job. The team who came to remove our tank was professional, informative, and just plain great! The cost of the tank removal was more than competitive, and we are highly satisfied on all levels -- including professionalism, timeliness, and value. We highly recommend this company! We couldn't have had a better experience!

Over the holidays, everyone was busy trying to get all the work done before the break. I called SREC, and they accommodated their schedule and were able to fit us in right on time before our inspection deadline. Felix was great to deal with. Glenn followed up and was on point with excellent communication. I highly recommend them. ???? A+
Jon Morris
Great to work with, timely, transparent about the process and reasonably priced. Highly recommend if you ever need any of the services they provide!

The sales persons were very patient in explaining the whole process with me and were very pleasant no matter how many times I called to clarify something. Also the workers taking the tank out and filling in the hole were also very pleasant, kind and professional in their duties.

You hear all kinds of stories about people being taken advantage of when it comes to oil tank removal. When speaking with Felix Santana of Steve Rich Environmental, you will get an honest and informed estimate. Yes, a lot cannot be known until the tank is out of the ground and inspected, but Felix will take you through the possible outcomes and possible costs to the best of his ability. He really knows his stull. We paid the quoted price for the tank removal and then we paid an additional cost to dispose of the foam that was used to decommission the tank. Thankfully we had no leaking. Beth, Glen and Lisa in the office are also very professional and responsive. Oil tank removal can be an expensive endeavor, but with Steve Rich you won't be taken advantage of, IMHO.
Andrea Pribula
Felix and his crew (Oscar and Ryan) were absolutely amazing! I am so glad they were recommended to me, I couldn't be any happier. Felix goes above and beyond to be available to answer any and all questions and put your mind at ease. The whole process was smooth and they were in and out, clean professional, never annoyed with the customers, kids, neighbors looking on as they worked to remove the tank and asking all the questions. Very friendly, very knowledgeable. These are your guys! If you need an oil tank removed, I highly recommend.
