This project created a new public entrance to the existing Grant County Landfill, moving it from the west side of the site to the east side. New and updated facilities were constructed, including:
8,562 s.f. Office/Shop Building, constructed with pre-engineered metal building system and providing Offices, Toilet Rooms, Locker Area, Kitchenette, and a large Meeting/Break Room. The Shop Area provides three (3) double-depth, drive-through maintenance bays and one (1) single depth bay. A Mezzanine provides Storage, Compressor Enclosure and an HVAC Mechanical Room.
576 s.f. Recycle Center Building providing an open pole-building structure for storing containers in which hazardous materials are collected.
231 s.f. Scale House with two (2) vehicle scales, one for incoming and one for outgoing traffic.
Fuel Island, relocated from original landfill entrance location, with re-used dispensing pumps and above ground tanks.
Use of products with recycled content was important for this client to help illustrate the ability to re-use materials that would normally end up in the landfill.
Site improvements included all access roadways from the County Road into the Landfill, parking lots and landscaping.
A separate study was performed to analyze the feasibility of using Landfill Gases to generate electricity, including payback periods.
