Meeting the needs of the Owner.
INSIDE THE PROJECT
The $3.85 million project involved the construction of new cells at an existing construction and demolition landfill. The main feature of building the new cells involved self-performing excavation and compaction of the 650,000-cubic-yards worth of onsite materials. Additional critical self-performed activities on this project included placing 11,000-cubic-yards of recycled aggregate leachate drainage material within the cells, constructing a retention pond, installing 2,000-linear-feet of 72-inch diameter storm sewer outflow lines with precast drainage structures, constructing a cast-in-place concrete drainage control structure at the pond, and installing 600-feet of leachate collection system line from the cell.
The project was completed within a four-month time frame, which included working in conjunction with the Owner’s daily landfill activities and being limited by the municipality to performing work during only daylight hours.
