Florida Department of Environmental Protection

GEAR has been working with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) on contracts for petroleum cleanup since 1987. GEAR is one of the 70+ FDEP approved Agency Term Contractors (ATC) that are permitted to assess and remediate petroleum contamination. GEAR has completed hundreds of projects, from Pensacola to Key West, and from Jacksonville to Fort Meyers.  To date, there are still over 5,000 facilities left to be assessed and remediated.


After petroleum contamination was found at several of Chevron's facilities in Florida, Chevron contracted GEAR to perform Environmental Services. GEAR discovered that many of these spills were caused by a third party not associated with Chevron or its retailers, which saved the company hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, GEAR has provided environmental cleanup services to over 20 Chevron facilities dating back to the 1960-70’s.


CH2M Hill was one of GEAR’s first federal projects when the Army Corps of Engineers contracted them to design Army Reserve Centers in Florida. GEAR was contracted by CH2M Hill to provide geotechnical services including soil classification, soil testing, permeability testing, sink-hole investigation, and over 250 feet of standard penetration test borings.


Marathon contracted GEAR to provide petroleum assessment and cleanup services for 17 facilities of its downline retailer: Speedway SuperAmerica, LLC in Florida. The 5-year contract produced $5M in revenue from 2007-2012 and helped GEAR springboard into the Federal government. GEAR significantly reduced or eliminated contamination to Site Rehabilitation Completion Order levels at all 17 locations.  

U.S. Navy

GEAR was contracted by the U.S. Navy to prepare a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) plan for their Portsmouth US Navy Hospital, in Virginia. The SPCC was completed on-time and accepted with no comments. The U.S. Navy is one of GEAR's target clients.

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has been a target client for GEAR since 2007. Through multiple proposals and follow-on debriefings, GEAR has learned how to market the federal government and owes much of its federal sector success to these experiences. In 2015, GEAR was awarded a 5-year, $30M Regional Environmental Acquisition Tool (REAT) Environmental Services contract for the USACE South Atlantic Division, which is being used nationwide.

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

The Department of Veteran Affairs has been GEAR’s largest revenue producer generating over $5M since the first contract awarded in 2010. GEAR was also awarded a 5-year, $7M IDIQ contract with the VA’s Construction & Facilities Management (CFM). GEAR provides NEPA, geotechnical, safety, engineering, and environmental assessment, as well as restoration services. GEAR has also been awarded A-E contracts: 8 Designs and 6 Design-Builds.


Sunoco was a purchaser of many Speedway SuperAmerica, LLC facilities in Florida, from 2011-2013. In many cases, GEAR continued to work on the SSALLC legacy cleanup projects while providing Sunoco with pre-construction services for geotechnical and stormwater design as Sunoco razed and rebuilt several of these facilities.


The University of Central Florida is one of GEAR’s newest clients. UCF started with small Environmental Compliance tasks at the University, which eventually led to GEAR's involvement in the Creative Village project located in Downtown Orlando. The Village is based upon the success of Orlando’s digital media industry by transforming the former Amway Arena site into a 68-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented, urban infill neighborhood in the heart of downtown Orlando. GEAR has provided ASTM Phase I and Phase II services, geotechnical services, and environmental consulting as well as retainer.

U.S. Air Force

Air Force is the manager of environmental projects at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station where rockets launch.  Many of the launch facilities have not been used for decades and since rocket launch clients, SpaceX and Blue Origin, lease one of these locations, GEAR is contracted to provide Wetlands Delineation, Stormwater Design and Permitting, Threatened & Endangered Species Survey, and Environmental Assessments. As a result, GEAR has cultivated a long and successful relationship with the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Environmental team.
