One project that stands out to Jeff is a recent NYS Brownfield Cleanup Program remedial action involving the former Grand Union in Fort Edward. The Town of Fort Edward owned the property, and Price Chopper was interested in using the site to build their first Market 32 store from the ground up. This project was challenged by environmental impact from PCBs. During the course of cleanup, there were several unexpected features to the environment. Subsurface conditions were more difficult than planned for, which required C.T. Male Associates to make rapid changes and reevaluate the level of environmental cleanup in order to successfully complete the project on time. The completed project not only positively impacted the environment, but created a new food market and additional job opportunities for the local community.
As an engineer for C.T. Male Associates for almost 20 years, his passion stems from a desire to positively impact the environment. Jeff enjoys working with a talented group of engineers each with various specialties to successfully complete projects that have a positive impact on the local community. In addition, Mr. Marx enjoys tackling the unexpected challenges and diverse projects that keep him on his toes even after all these years. According to Jeff, “I can be sitting at my desk preparing technical reports or doing design work, only to be interrupted by a call from a client that has a petroleum spill that needs immediate attention. I take pride in taking prompt action, implementing the tools to mitigate the spill, interacting with the applicable regulating agency and getting that client back on track with their project schedule.”
