Oakland Preserve

This project consisted of the new construction of eighty, two and three-story, multi-family units located in Oakland Park, Florida on a five-acre parcel. The project was part of a cooperative venture between Pinnacle and the Broward County Housing Authority’s non-profit affiliate, Building Better Communities.

GFA Services
  • GFA performed an Environmental Phase 1 Site Assessment with an Environmental Lien Search. This included records review, site reconnaissance, interviews, and preparation of a Phase 1 ESA Report.
  • GFA performed an Environmental Phase 2 Site Assessment that included installing nine soil borings using a GeoProbe drill rig via direct push technology to assess for potential impacts of the use of unsuitable fill material. A total of twenty-seven soil samples were collected for laboratory analysis of low-level Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons.
  • Due to elevated levels of benzoapyrene detected in soil samples, GFA prepared and implemented a Soil Management Plan. During the implementation of the Soil Management Plan, GFA documented site activities and collected soil samples for laboratory analysis.
  • GFA collected seventy-two, five-point composite soil samples from five large stockpiles for laboratory analysis for organochloride herbicides, arsenic, and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. GFA prepared a Site Assessment Report using the laboratory data from assessments.
  • GFA also installed three FDEP-approved shallow groundwater monitoring wells, one FDEP-approved intermediate double-cased groundwater monitoring well and collected groundwater samples for laboratory analysis.
  • GFA retained a licensed land surveyor to survey in the top of casing elevations and GPS coordinates for the newly installed FDEP-approved monitoring wells.
  • GFA is providing quarterly monitoring for Natural Attenuation Monitoring and Reporting. Upon completion of construction activities, GFA will submit a SMP Implementation Report-Request for No Further Action to Broward County Pollution Prevention Remediation and Air Quality Division.
  • GFA also installed 4 FDEP-approved permanent groundwater monitoring wells.
  • In May of 2017, GFA collected a total of sixteen soil samples with a GeoProbe drill rig via direct-push technology for further laboratory analysis and performed proper well abandonment for eight of the monitoring wells.
  • via direct-push technology for further laboratory analysis and performed proper well abandoments for eight of the monitoring wells. GFA prepared an Engineering and Institutional Control Plan and No Further Action with Conditions report. GFA provided Contour Map Development services.
  • GFA also performed a Geotechnical Exploration consisting of thirteen standard penetration test borings to depths of 25-feet below existing grade and four exfiltration tests to depths of 10-feet below existing grade.
