James Construction installed the new storm and sanitary sewer systems serving multiple other new construction projects that are part of a major expansion of the Fort Detrick military base.
The storm sewer installation included two 1,050 feet long parallel runs of specialty 34″ x 56″ Class V elliptical reinforced concrete pipe and associated pre-cast concrete storm structures. This system tied into an existing retention pond.
The sanitary sewer installation consisted of approximately 2,400 feet of 15″ SDR pipe and pre-cast concrete manhole structures, connecting to an existing sanitary manhole which was a permit required confined space.
James Construction excavated nearly 2,000 cubic yards of rock to create a trench in excess of 15 feet deep. Excavation work took place beneath high voltage lines. It also required the relocation and support of existing underground utilities.
