Building Pad and Underground work nearing completion

We made good progress this week and at week’s end we had achieved about 95% of the building pad undercut. We also completed the geo-grid and select back fill material installation along two sides of the pad, a design element to protect the building pad’s integrity along the Duhart’s Creek of the building.

Once the fabric and select back fill material was completed our fill operation then concentrated to bring this last remaining area up to grade. (About 15’ vertical)

Overall, a good week, although inclement weather continues to become a larger a factor as it is typically  during this time of the year.

On Monday, The underground detention system was started.  This system will have over 1,240 LF of 60” CMP and will be located underneath the parking lot area.  One of the design functions of this system includes a unique filter system to trap sediment and petroleum before rain runoff leaves the system.

Work Continues For Gastonia

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.

Granular Material and Fabric Covering

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.

Forming of 72" Pipe Collar

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.
