Factoria Transfer Station Improvements, King County Solid Waste Division
CivilTech provided the on-call structural engineering services for improvements at the Factoria Transfer Station facility. We conducted site inspections to evaluate existing condition s of in-bound and out-bound scales, beams, load cells, base plates, anchor bolts, connections, and scale deck. CivilTech then prepared a memorandum documenting existing conditions and repair recommendations. King County Solid Waste Division advanced the scale deck replacement to construction, and the work included demolishing old concrete pedestals, core drilling to install additional reinforcing steel, pouring concrete for new pedestals, and installing a new scale deck. CivilTech provided construction observation for the concrete pours, and all of the construction work was scheduled so that normal operations of the transfer station facility were not affected. Other tasks have included designing a small on-site storage facility, modifying the concrete slab on-grade to accommodate a Hazardous Waste Storage Facility, re-designing the scale pit to accommodate a new low-profile platform scale, and designing a raised generator platform structure.
