Educating the Local Community


Central_Kitsap_High_School_Stormwater_ManagementRecently, one of our site superintendents, Andrew Palomaki, visited the AP Environmental Science class at Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale, Washington.

Bill Wilson, the class teacher, contacted us regarding the Silverdale Trails project.  He asked that we come and present to his classes information on construction stormwater management and environmental challenges construction companies face.  The presentation included many hot topics such as site preparation, installation of infrastructure to control stormwater runoff, installation of permanent stormwater structures to mitigate effects on local water sheds and careers in the construction industry.

The presentation was a success!

“Students are now aware of all the hoops that construction companies have to jump through to protect the environment…It raised their awareness of future career options in construction management.”

-Bill Wilson, Central Kitsap High School

 

 


Silverdale Trails – Site Progression


Silverdale_Trails_Site_Progression_2UPDATED 11/19/14 The jobsite cam is now in operation. Click here to see the progress.

At the Silverdale Trails site, we have completed over 33,500 SF of lock and load retaining walls and paved the construction entrance. Through the use of a wheel wash system, we have been able to control the amount of mud tracked onto the public roads.

The site is now to grade and over the next couple of weeks we will be building the soldier pile walls on the northwest corner of the site. We will also be setting the 240 panel precast cover for the storm water detention vault, beginning installation of underground utilities, and installing rock for the future parking lot.

Building construction is set to begin early 2015.


Silverdale Trails – Underground Detention System


Silverdale_Trails_Aerial_1-2Concrete pouring recently commenced for the new underground stormwater detention vault at the Silverdale Trails retail development in Silverdale, Washington.

Utilizing two 61-meter concrete pumps, Apeland Concrete pumped approximately 1,000-yards of CalPortland concrete in under 10 hours to complete the vault’s entire slab and footing pour.  A task that would require roughly 100 ready-mix concrete trucks.

Larger than a football field, this underground detention system is being installed under the shopping center’s future parking lot on the eastern-central portion of the site.  It is designed to contain all of the stormwater runoff on the parking lot, and through the 1,000 gallon per minute filtration system, dissipate water into the earth opposed to being forced offsite in a storm event.

The Silverdale Trails is a 212,000 square foot shopping center situated on an approximate 18 acre site at Kitsap Mall Boulevard and Greaves Way.  The site sits against a natural backdrop of old growth timber and natural wetlands with views of Mt. Rainier and Puget Sound.
