Corrado Construction used on-site soil to help save both time and money for our client on this project. We were able to balance out the large import demand of over 175,000 cubic yards of fill using a combination of import and on-site materials. We used the on-site materials for our fills and the excess topsoil from the site to construct landscaped berms as well as fill in our non-structural areas.
The underground utilities, storm water detention system and wet detention pond had to be constructed well below the water table. Given that August 2011 was the wettest month on record in Delaware and ended with Hurricane Irene, CCC’s crews developed a near-to-impossible schedule to ensure the facility was ready for occupancy by the requested deadline.
