Project Overview

Site work and new construction of a 100,316 SF, 120-bed assisted living facility in New Castle, Delaware. The site was a Brownsfield site, where demolition, removal and disposal of existing buildings, sheds, and brush were required before new construction could begin. Corrado Construction’s work on the site included:

  • Topsoil stripped: 6,325 CY
  • Cuts to fills: 11,000 CY
  • Storm sewer: 1,070 LF
  • Sanitary sewer: 500 LF
  • Waterline: 1,500 LF
  • Sidewalk: 21,000 SF
  • Curb: 3,500 LF
  • Paving: 1,500 tons
  • Excavate and install three Bio-retention ponds
  • Installation of a 1000′ long retaining wall, 26 catch basins and 2 wet taps
  • Asphalt walking trail

Key Challenges

  • Due to the existing wet subgrade soils, Corrado had to treat approximately 140,290 SF of existing soils with Calciment.
  • As a Brownfield site, removal of buried trash was needed.


Paul Smedberg, Project Executive

Having worked with many site contractors across the county it was great to be able to work with such a professional, well-staffed and skilled company like Corrado on the Harborchase Assisted Living project. Their experience and attention to detail is above and beyond industry standards. I would welcome the Corrado team on my next project.
