SPEC provided engineering, design and permitting services for a major asphalt production plant upgrade project. The facility housed a smaller inefficient asphalt plant. The plant was upgraded with modern and environmentally friendly equipment while increasing the production throughput capacity. SPEC designed the site layout and stormwater retention pond system to meet stringent “hot-spot” requirements on a size and topographically restricted site. Additional project constraints included maintaining existing office buildings and providing access for large delivery vehicles and loading equipment. SPEC was able to utilize redevelopment practices to minimize the impacts of the proposed site and intended use. SPEC provided the designs for large vertical tank foundations and their containments, and all major equipment foundations. Permitting with local municipality, state and federal regulators was included in SPEC’s scope.
