Site Work & Excavation

STEVENS Engineers & Constructors, being more than just an excavation contractor, knows what the final product needs to be for the next phase of a construction project — from de-watering and utility relocation to mass excavating and backfill. STEVENS tailors its plan for safety, environmental protection and efficiency. Using the most current technology and software, STEVENS does its own meticulous layout and reporting of factual and accurate progress to keep on schedule. When we complete an excavation, it’s ready for concrete placement, as if we were going to do it ourselves, which is also part of our expertise! (See Civil Concrete)

PANDA HUMMEL STATION

Location: Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania

STEVENS, subcontracted by Bechtel, utilized Robotic Total Stations and Carlson Earthwork Software in conjunction with on-site engineering and third-party soils testing to excavate, backfill, import and export 260,000 cy of material, place storm drain piping and structures, road beds and utilize existing recycled concrete and asphalt to stabilize parking and laydown areas.

All local, state and federal permits regarding environmental protections were in place and observed allowing for minimal environmental impacts. Sediment control and erosion best management practices were followed prior to and monitored during construction. Heavy equipment used to accomplish the project included CAT excavators, articulating dumps, backhoes, D8 dozers, rollers, graders and lull forklifts. Every precaution was taken to promote on-site safety including daily and weekly safety meetings, equipment inspections and daily excavation inspections prior to the beginning of work. The expertise of the on-site crew working in conjunction with Bechtel’s engineers allowed for continuous excavation and backfill without neglecting safety or quality of work even when bad soils and ground water were encountered. STEVENS provided daily quantities and weekly drawings for client’s verification of progress.

PPL
PPL MONTOUR POWER PLANT

Location: Washingtonville, Pennsylvania

STEVENS, subcontracted by Stone and Webster, utilized Robotic Total Stations and Carlson Earthwork Software in conjunction with on-site engineering and third-party soils testing to excavate 200,000 cy of earth, 70,000 cy of rock, excavated a stormwater retainage pond, placed storm drain piping, roads and rail beds and backfilled an area of five acres with 2A limestone to create a storage area for the storage of raw limestone used in the process of the FGD system at the PPL Montour Power Plant.

All local, state and federal permits regarding environmental protections were in place and observed, allowing for minimal environmental impacts. Sediment control and erosion best management practices were followed prior to and monitored during construction. Heavy equipment used to accomplish the project included CAT excavators, over-the-road dump trucks, backhoes, D8 dozers, rollers, graders and lull forklifts. Every precaution was taken to promote on-site safety including daily and weekly safety meetings, equipment inspections and daily excavation inspections prior to the beginning of work. The expertise of the on-site crew working in conjunction with Stone and Webster’s engineers allowed for continuous excavation and backfill without neglecting safety or quality of work. All excavated material was loaded onto road trucks with a CAT excavator and hauled to a local landfill. All rock excavation was done with hydraulic hoe rams and after the site was recontoured, the site not used in the storage and or process of limestone was seeded. STEVENS provided daily quantities and weekly drawings for client’s verification of progress.

KINDER MORGAN: SCIO METER STATION

Location: Scio, Ohio

The Scio Meter Station Earthwork was completed for Kinder Morgan, utilizing the latest drone technology in conjunction with on-site engineering to move 60,000 cy of dirt in the most efficient way possible. All local, state and federal permits regarding environmental protections were in place and observed, allowing for minimal environmental impacts. Erosion and sediment control was installed and maintained prior to construction, during construction and after construction was complete. Heavy equipment was used — including CAT 740 articulating dumps, CAT excavators, CAT rollers and CAT backhoes. Every precaution was taken to ensure the site was safe for heavy equipment to cross the existing pipelines using engineered air bridges. These bridges were installed prior to earthwork activities in locations which allowed for a continual flow of traffic. This made the excavation and backfill activities most efficient. The knowledge and expertise of the on-site team, as well as the cooperation of the client, allowed for excavation spoils of pad one to be transported to pad two, and immediately placed for backfill. On-site third party inspectors worked hand-in-hand with Kinder Morgan and STEVENS to verify that all project specifications were either met or exceeded.
