Machens Volkswagen

ESS provided a self-preformed site infrastructure package which allowed for a great working relationship with the General Contractor, Little Dixie Construction. ESS was a valued member of the construction team and with completion of this project improved our relationship with the Machens Dealership group.PDF

Project Constraints

Existing uncontrolled fills were determined to be present across the site which required remediation of voids and deleterious material. ESS was able to accomplish the compaction requirements with sizing and incorporating these onsite materials in nonstructural fill locations. ESS was able to overcome the 80,000 cubic yards of suitable borrow material by utilizing export material resources from area projects. With some logistics and communication this ensured smooth construction operations and ESS was able to provide a building pad site to the owner in a timely manner and within their budget.

Value Engineering Options

Eliminated underground detention system by obtaining additional property to allow for a traditional detention for storm drainage runoff and provided a saving of $200,000.00 to the owner.
