Idaho-based North Wind, Inc. was recently selected by the Coeur d’Alene Trust to provide design and engineering services for environmental cleanup actions in the Upper Basin of the Coeur d’Alene River in North Idaho. Three companies – North Wind, CDM and HDR – were selected from a large field of interested companies.
To pursue the work with the Coeur d’Alene Trust, North Wind partnered with Pioneer Technical Services, a Montana-based engineering, environmental services and construction management firm with a proven track record of successful reclamation projects. According to the Trust, the North Wind/Pioneer team was selected based on their proven qualifications, local presence, and long-term commitment to the Silver Valley area. North Wind and Pioneer have worked together on various projects since 2003.
According to North Wind Construction Services Manager, Kevin Redmond, “The North Wind/Pioneer team provided very relevant experience and a history of success together. As the only small business selected to support this project, we are extremely proud of our accomplishments and pleased to be able to support such a significant project in our home state.
The Coeur d’Alene Trust, working in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, was established to implement a variety of environmental cleanup actions in the Upper Basin of the Coeur d’Alene River. This area is part of the Bunker Hill Mining and Metallurgical Complex Superfund Site. Cleanup activities are planned over the next 20 to 30 years.
