Protection Against Past Dangers for Your Future

Protection Against Past Dangers for Your Future

Careful mitigation measures are essential for dealing with munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) or other left-behind material that could pose an explosive threat.

Burns & McDonnell has built a trusted team of senior MEC specialists and technicians who safely identify, remove and dispose of unexploded ordnance (UXO), discarded military munitions (DMM), propellants, fuses, munitions constituents (MC) and other materials potentially presenting an explosive hazard (MPPEH).

Our team includes civilian and former military supervisors and professionals who specialize in regulatory requirements, military protocol and public affairs.

The team's hands-on experience with military munitions combines with our in-house knowledge of environmental restoration and brownfields redevelopment to provide tailored solutions for our clients. Our accomplished chemists, GIS data analysts and environmental professionals bolster our work with the MMRP (Military Munitions Response Program), BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) and FUDS (Formerly Used Defense Sites).
