Eutaw Construction Company, Inc. was recently awarded a contract of $24.68 million dollars for the Airfield Modernization Program at the McGhee Tyson Airport. This will be the first phase of the Airfield Modernization Program, which has an overall estimate of $100 million dollars throughout the next 4 years. To meet current regulations set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Eutaw will perform various scopes of work including, but not limited to: demolition of approximately 3,000 linear feet of center runway 5L-23R, connecting taxiways and all correlating drainage, electrical and navigational aid systems; more than 500,000 cubic yards of unclassified excavation and embankment; more than 6,400 linear feet of RCP drainage piping and more than 22,000 linear feet of 6-inch underdrain piping; 82,000 square yards of 16-inch PCC paving; more than 11,500 tons of asphalt base and surface course paving; extensive electrical and navigational aid (NAVAID) work; abatement and demolition of two buildings (totaling more 31,000 square feet); and ancillary items.
Eutaw constructed a 1,100-space parking lot adjacent to the Nissan North America assembly plant by re-developing a 25-acre site in Smyrna, Tennessee. This project involved extensive rock excavation, rock blasting, and earthwork of approximately 40,000 cubic yards of unsuitable material, 20,000 tons of surge stone for stabilization, base stone, and pavement for the site. This project also included over 3,000 linear feet of concrete paved ditch, 2 retention ponds, 300 linear feet of trench drain, nearly 1,000 linear feet of storm piping and over half a mile of U.S Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) perimeter fencing.
Eutaw performed site work on a 31-acre site for a 110,000 square foot manufacturing facility that will provide vehicle parts to the General Motors manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, TN. Our scope(s) of work included approximately 20,000 cubic yards of onsite grading, 20,000 cubic yards of borrow excavation, drilling and blasting a 40-ft deep pit for future equipment, 2 bio-retention ponds, over 4,000 linear feet of domestic water, fire water, and sewer piping, and over 1,000 linear feet of storm and roof drain piping. The project also includes relocating an adjacent rail car traffic line, and adding a point-of-switch along with approximately 2,500 linear feet of rail car access and storage for the building.
Eutaw will be responsible for the rehabilitation and widening of Florence Road from Enon Springs Road to the Nissan Gate on Florence Road. The existing roadway is a two-lane, shoulder, and ditch section. The new roadway will contain three 12-ft wide lanes, curb and gutter, storm drainage components, an 8-ft wide multi-use sidewalk, minor utility re-locations, grading and associated work to complete approximately 7,000 linear feet of road work.
