This project required performing the sitework for a new steel mill. The project was a fast track project that involved moving 180,000 CY of earthwork in 30 days.
This project involves the site development associated with the design-build construction of a wood pellet manufacturing facility near Bastrop, Louisiana. Eutaw’s contract involved clearing & grubbing the ± 95-acre site, approximately 200,000 CY of unclassified excavation, placing over 20,000 Tons of limestone base, installation of all water & sewer utilities, and all onsite asphalt paving. Our crews completed the base scope of work well ahead of schedule and under budget for the owner. With the project being a design-build, we encountered many challenges with design changes during construction. It was imperative that our construction team reacted swiftly to ensure timely completion for the owner.
This project was a 1400 acre site, involving 175 acres of clearing and grubbing, excavation of 4 million CY of 6′-12′ of expansive clay overburden that was stockpiled on-site and Demopolis chalk, that was ripped, broken down and stockpiled on-site. It also include the construction of a 36 acre and a 15 acre detention pond which included 645,000 CY of excavation. There was excavation and backfill of 53′ deep foundations for the new plant facility. Eutaw also constructed and graded 125,000 square yards of railroad, installed 5,000 linear feet of storm drain pipe structures.
Site construction including moving 348,000 CY of unclassified excavation, placement of 245,000 CY of select borrow material, 12,000 tons of chemical stabilization, and installation of approximately 3,700 linear feet of storm drain piping with 17 grate inlets. Project had a to be completed within 50 days, but was completed in less than 30 days.
