Urban Center Site Clearing & Earthwork
The Compuware project consisted of the removal of approximately
400,000 cubic yards of earthwork soils and site clearing which
included the demolition, excavation and removal of approximately
16,000 cubic yards of existing reinforced concrete, including
foundation walls, footings, grade beam, columns, slabs and
other buried debris.
|Work Performed: demolition,
site clearing, earthwork, excavation, brownfield
Site excavation was to the face of soldier piles in an
earth retention system. Site demolition also included the removal
of an abandoned Detroit Edison steam tunnel that included asbestos
abatement procedures. In addition to the excavation of existing
materials NADC was responsible for continual site dewatering and
soil erosion control, dust control and the installation of new fire
hydrants on the site.
Another hurdle to over come was the proximity of the Detroit People
Mover and Sub-station to the excavation site. This required the
submittal of a detailed construction and protection plan of existing
structures prior to commencing of construction and excavation.
Additionally, NADC provided 24,000 tons of aggregate backfill over
40,000 square feet of geotextile fabric. NADC also built and maintained
temporary site access roads, access ramps, lay down areas and parking
areas including periodic grading, as well as the removal of all
caisson spoils and ramps.
This project was completed on schedule, with limited change orders
and without interference with the simultaneous steel work and ongoing
