Case Study

An American Research University

The Challenge

A major university in the St. Louis area was in need of a safe and efficient solution for removing preserved lab samples from an extremely remote storage location. Despite limited electricity and the abundance of wildlife – the university needed this project completed quickly, with required tracking and documentation to meet compliance regulations.


Heritage was able to offer this university a comprehensive plan for management. From manpower to materials, Heritage provided full resources for the project. In addition, Heritage provided complete documentation during all steps of the process, including required tracking.


We provided a full JSA (Job Safety Analysis) when devising our customized solution for this project. The competitive pricing of our services aligned closely with the university’s project goals.


Heritage completed this project in half the expected time, without any issues or injuries. By providing full staffing needs, “employees were able to return to civilization” sooner, as one put it. Equally important, it allowed the research team to return their focus to their daily activities.
