Munitions & Explosives of Concern

Matrix offers a full range of munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) services from strategic planning, MEC risk assessment, investigation, removal actions, remediation, and follow-on construction support and anomaly avoidance.

Matrix is a recognized leader in the munitions response industry and has self-performed the

characterization, risk evaluation, and clearance of some of the most high-density, high-risk, saturated response impact and demolition areas in the United States. We orchestrated the U.S. Army’s first early transfer of a MEC-contaminated BRAC property and are managing the Army’s largest privatized MEC cleanup consisting of 4,200 acres of contaminated range and training areas at the former Fort McClellan U.S. Army post in Alabama. We provide innovative risk reduction-based task management to our clients by subdividing projects into risk-limited quantifiable milestones, providing accurate data on which to base build remediation estimates, and competing contract work units. These techniques allow us to minimize uncertainties commonly associated with MEC remediation.
