Mr. Adcock has a thorough knowledge of Industrial and Manufacturing facilities throughout the USA. He is responsible for the Industrial Division within GER. He is very experienced with Nuclear Power and its specialized environmental problems. As a (GS-12) Nuclear Engineer for the U.S. Naval Shipyard, he was responsible for the maintenance and repair of primary nuclear plant components, i.e., steam generators and main coolant piping. He directed a fast response team of mechanics, engineers and support personnel to undertake steam generator repairs within a moments notice throughout the world for the U.S. Navy. His responsibilities included development procedures, specifications, tooling design, and training to ensure the safety of the mechanics as well as the components. Radioactive materials and radiation exposure were of primary concern. Much of the repair was on highly contaminated and radioactive material; therefore, considerations were necessary to minimize risks.

Mr. Adcock is responsible for the Environmental Compliance & Industrial Division within GER. He has a thorough knowledge of Industrial and Manufacturing facilities throughout the USA. His experience includes a wide range of environmental issues regarding air, soil and water pollution. He is experienced with the development and implementation of UST/AST Management Programs including data gathering, risk assessment, remediation, prevention of future problems, and liaison with regulatory authorities to ensure compliance. He has directed engineering studies as necessary to perform detailed site characterization reports (SCRs), aboveground storage tank facility closure reports, risk assessments including the use of detailed computer modeling, waste minimization analysis, groundwater quality investigations, etc. He has also directed and conducted many Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Environmental Site Assessments, Hazardous Waste Closure Plans, etc.
