Isaac Anderson Earns Esteemed Massachusetts Construction Supervisor License (CSL)
Cooperstown Environmental LLC Senior Project Manager Isaac Anderson, leader of the firm’s vapor intrusion practice, recently was awarded an unrestricted Construction Supervisor License (CSL) from the State of Massachusetts. This highly-regarded license is considered very difficult to obtain and demonstrates a high degree of proficiency across a range of construction topics.
The construction supervisor license requires passing a test that assesses familiarity with building codes, technologies and practices. Mr. Anderson’s expertise has been developed through a lifetime of “hands-on” experience with construction, carpentry, timber management, electrical, plumbing, and site work across a variety of industries.
His firsthand experience and detailed understanding of building construction is an invaluable asset in the realm of vapor intrusion, particularly as the understanding of vapor intrusion mechanisms increasingly focus on construction-related issues. He is routinely retained by consulting firms, architects, engineers, developers, municipalities, and regulatory agencies to support vapor intrusion mitigation projects throughout the United States. Mr. Anderson has employed vapor barriers, spray-liners, concrete densifiers, vapor recovery piping and matting networks, extraction sumps, and active and passive sub-slab depressurization (SSD) systems, to abate vapor intrusion in commercial, industrial, residential, mid-rise housing and mixed-use buildings.
Isaac has designed and successfully implemented remedial treatment systems for oil and hazardous materials with a focus on volatile organic compounds. He holds a patent for a Wastewater Treatment Process/Apparatus (#US9272924). Remedial designs he has worked on include: soil vapor extraction, in-situ chemical oxidation, bioremediation and bioaugmentation, and groundwater pump-and-treat systems. Groundwater pump-and-treat systems have used oil-water separation, fractionation, filtration, oxidation, ion exchange and dual-phase extraction (air-stripping). Mr. Anderson also is a licensed Grade II Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant Operator in Massachusetts.
Mr. Anderson’s specialty is treatment system automation and optimization. He has worked with several companies and bridged multiple industries to develop remote monitoring (telemetry) devices to further the state of environmental practice.
