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.
Stripped 102 acres and cleared 33.5 acres, constructed two-lane access road to site and circular rail spur, moved 265,000 cubic yards (CY) of unclassified material, 183,000 CY of embankment, completed 59,000 square yards of lime mixing, placed 63,000 tons of crushed limestone, laid 1,800 linear feet of various storm drain pipe, and relocated 900′ of force main to make room for new rail spur. Also, 1,700′ of steel casing (12″ to 24″) and 1,800′ of PVC conduit for future electrical and irrigation (2″ to 4″)
This project included the construction of a reinforced concrete bridge and weir wall. The bridge work included 330 CY of concrete and 50,000 LBS of steel. The weir wall was constructed for a storm drainage detention pond that included 700 CY of concrete.
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.
