Pinnacle Pointe Housing Developments

UES utilized visual, non-intrusive inspection techniques for this project, which provided assurance that the structures were virtually free of any defects related to codes or structural deficiencies.

We began this project by speaking with site management to understand where any leak issues had occurred in the past. After our discussion, we performed the following tasks at each building exterior to discern whether there was a high probability of water entering the building envelope:

  • An infrared camera inspection of each building to discern whether there are any indications of water intrusion into the walls at the time of our inspection
  • Physical inspection of the exterior of each structure looking for water entry points (cracks, flashings, windows, doors, etc.)
  • Roof shingle inspection using binoculars or aerial inspection

The Grand Cyprus project included the construction of a new, multi-family residential development on the west side of Winter Garden Vineland Road (across from Grand Cypress Golf Course) in Orlando, Florida. The site plan indicated four buildings, each being four-story, wood-framed apartments and associated parking/drive areas.

UES provided eight Standard Penetration Tests (SPT) borings within the proposed apartment building footprints to a depth of 40 below existing land surface (bls) and ten SPT borings within the proposed pavement/exfiltration trench areas to a depth of 15 feet bls.

On May 3, 2017, UES issued a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in compliance with ASTM E1527-13 for the subject property. The Phase I ESA site reconnaissance indicated the presence of numerous abandoned drums and containers, as well as evidence of agricultural pesticide use.

UES Recommended a Phase II ESA. On May 30, 2017, UES conducted a Phase II ESA at the subject property based on the observations noted in the Phase I ESA. Based on the findings, arsenic was identified at a concentration exceeding the Soil Cleanup Target Level (SCTL) for residential use properties set forth in Chapter 62-777, Florida Administrative Code, at the location of a greenhouse and a shed present on the central portion of the subject property.

Based on the Phase II ESA results, UES recommended that the unsuitable soil be removed and properly disposed of in accordance with State mandates. In October 2017, UES provided turn-key source removal remediation services. UES personnel demolished buildings, removed trees, and cleared obstacles for the excavation. UES excavated, loaded, transported, and properly disposed of 800 tons of unsuitable soil detected in the Phase II process.
