The site grading contractor has been taking advantage of the great weather in late October to get a jump on the undercut for the future building pad. Multiple layers of grid and stone are being used to insure a stable building foundation.
Through the month of October, the site contractor has progressed with the installation of the triple 72”CMP (Corrugated Metal Pipe). This is being installed to relocate an existing storm stream under the future parking lot area.
The relocation of the existing outfall sewer was a 24/7 operation after finding the condition of the existing VCP pipe. Crews worked round the clock for 7 days to install, test and cut over more than 1200lf of new 18” sewer line.
The site contractor was able to get the transition collar from CMP to RCP in on the triple 72” pipes before the Thanksgiving Holiday.
