Steve Rich’s 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

Working 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

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

The 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

The 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 Infrastructure Solutions.

Steve Rich is a great group of professionals that make a messy job less stressful. They took care of two of my commercial properties. One was an easy oil tank removal and the other was not so easy. There was remediation work that needed to be done and there were many people that they needed to coordinate with including PSEG, county and city departments, as well as the tenants of the buildings. They did it all with the upmost competency and professionalism. Everything was always explained and reviewed with me and even the owner came to the job site for a meeting. Suzanne took great care of our remediation and educated us along the way so we never had a doubt this was being done correctly. If I could give them 6 stars I would. I highly recommend them for any job, commercial or residential.

I received the recommendation for Steve Rich and Associates, Inc. from a friend who raved about their service. My first contact was during the weekend and online. Steve called me back on the next work day. And from there everything was clearly explained. All my questions were answered. Steve and his office had everything organized. The permit came in a timely manner. PSE&G labeled the gas and water lines. Everything was taken care of. The day of the oil tank removal went smoothly. All work was done neatly. A tarp was put out to collect the dirt. The hole that was dug was precise and just the size needed to remove the tank. The crew that came walked me though the process and answered all my questions. It was arranged for PSE&G to be there to make sure none of the digging for the oil tank was done around the gas line. The whole process could not have been easier. I wholeheartedly recommend this company for removal of an underground oil tank. And bonus!!! My oil tank was intact and had no signs of contamination in the soil.

I recently had to have an underground oil tank removed for a sale of a home. Everyone of their staff members, and I dealt with quite a few people were exceptional. They assisted me promptly. They were professional, courteous, and fair with their pricing. All around a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them.

I reached out to Steve Rich for our oil tank removal - we were selling our house, and needed to have it removed. The service from Steve Rich is great, and easy and to the point. Their prices were better than 2 other companies I reached out to, and Glenn responded to my inquiry super fast. They also helped guide me for getting the permit. Glenn helped answer all my questions, and we were able to get a schedule pinned down in about a week (it depends on your town), but everything went smooth, and Glenn sent the completed paperwork the next day to ensure we could move forward with the sale. The actual extraction was super smooth. Danny was the excavator, and he used a detector and found exactly where the tank was, and they were done in just a few hours. Overall, great experience for something so intimidating. Much easier than I expected, and better price than the others I reached out to. Recommended for Passaic county and wherever else they might serve in the NE.
