ECC was founded in 1985 with a mission to support environmental programs for Federal government agencies. Our services included emergency response and hazardous waste treatment removal, and transportation and disposal (T&D) services.
Truly a success story, ECC has strengthened in size, experience, and capabilities to a highly competitive Federal contractor, ranking in Engineering News Record’s (ENR) Top 100 Defense Contractors, Top 100 Design-Build Contractors, and Top 100 Construction Management-at-Risk Firms. ECC is an employee-owned company and was recently named a Top Workplace in the Bay Area by the San Jose Mercury News and 2011 Healthiest Employer in Hawaii by the Pacific Business News. We compete against some of the world’s largest engineering, construction, design-build, and environmental cleanup companies and execute programs valued from $100,000 to $1 billion from office and project locations around the globe. Significant achievements that have driven our growth and success include:
1998-2000: Growing rapidly, ECC was awarded several significant US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) contracts with the Louisville, Mobile, Nashville, and Sacramento Districts. ECC executed our first performance-based $50 million Site-Specific Environmental Remediation Contract at the Wayne Industrial Storage Site for USACE Kansas City, which went on to win the 8th Annual Design Excellence Award. ECC was also awarded our first $50 million worldwide unexploded ordnance response contract (NURC) for the US Navy.
2001-2004: ECC executed our first US Department of Energy (DOE) contract, the 2-year, $50 million Columbus Closure Project to remediate highly contaminated radioactive soil and groundwater. The project resulted in Nuclear Regulatory Commission de-licensing and DOE’s first free release closure. ECC’s win of the $4 billion joint total acquisition value Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE) Worldwide Environmental Restoration and Construction Contract led to more than $1.4 billion in design-build projects in the Middle East across multiple contracts.
2005-2009: Following Hurricane Katrina, ECC executed more than $450 million in disaster recovery services under a $1 billion emergency-response contract for the USACE. Partnering with the community, ECC awarded 92 percent of the subcontracted dollars to local small businesses, which contributed to the receipt of four awards for small business subcontracting. ECC was also awarded the first of several future Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Star designations: OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program Star Among Stars designation at MMR, MA. ECC would go on to receive a VPP site at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal, Colorado; as well as VPP designated geographic areas covering multiple projects in Guam and San Antonio. ECC also established our highly successful Design-Build Center of Excellence.
2010 and Beyond: ECC continues to move forward into the future of design-build and alternative energy solutions. At the Medical Education Training Complex at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, ECC completed the award-winning LEED Gold $133 million Buildings 3 & 4 project. ECC also provided wind turbine, photovoltaic, and other sustainable solutions across the US, Pacific, and Europe. Our operations in Southwest Asia also gained momentum with key contract awards from the US Navy, Air Force, USACE, USAID, and Department of State, as ECC strengthened our operations in the Pacific with the US Navy, particularly in Guam.
