WASTE AUDIT

COMMERCIAL OFFICE / INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT

Overview: A commercial property owner, frustrated by dealing with a city-mandated monopoly waste hauler, hired Util’s professionals to look for alternatives. The property had been paying for needless, expensive city service for years and neither the city nor their monopoly hauler offered alternatives or suggestions. In fact, both the city and their monopoly hauler actively discouraged any changes. This large location was zoned as office/industrial and had a number of small businesses, warehouses and light manufacturing on site.

The company’s owner appointed our team as the property’s exclusive waste management agent. Our professionals reviewed applicable state, county and city ordinances to determine what could be done to improve the situation. As part of the process, we performed a month-long waste characterization study at the property. It was determined that a significant amount of waste could be diverted to collection for recycling. Further research revealed state law specifically permitted the collection of materials for recycling—even though both the city and its monopoly hauler had failed to notify the owner of this option despite repeated requests.

Results: Based on state law and the findings in the waste characterization, our team reduced solid waste service levels and instituted recycling at the property. Both the city and their monopoly waste hauler complained about the change and challenged its legitimacy. We produced the waste characterization, related documentation from state law and rulings from the Department of Environmental Protection supporting the change. The city and their waste hauler then accepted the change and made the alterations as requested by our experts.

TELECOMMUNCATIONS AUDIT

MULTI-LOCATION ORAL SURGEONS OFFICE

Overview: At the start of the telecommunications project, the client was set up with outdated Telecom service that was fragmented and decentralized.  This client was in need of an updated system that will enable them to connect seamlessly between satellite offices, as well as improve their data transfer speed.  They requested that Util perform a detailed review of all aspects of their system and make recommendations.

Results: After the review, Util’s Telecommunications team implemented advanced telecommunications technologies such as VOIP at all of their locations. In order to produce further results, Util’s telecom audit team assisted in the negotiation and implementation of Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology. By implementing VOIP over MPLS and replacing the frame relay network, the company saved over 37% in their total telecommunications spends.
