CRETE will be providing ISS remedial design services for cleanup of a former wood treating site in Bellingham, WA. For this particular site, in situ solidification using a cement-slag mixture was selected based on treatability testing. CRETE is the leading provider of ISS design services in the Northwest. CRETE has the technical and regulatory experience necessary to implement these unique and complex cleanup projects. Our experience developing construction bid documents for ISS and other projects will ensure that competitive bids are received and change orders are minimized.
