The primary objective of the project was to improve employee safety by creating added parking spaces on the lot adjacent to the P&H Mining Corporate Office and manufacturing facilities. The Owner decided to treat the new parking area as a gateway entrance to the facility, by incorporating new ornamental fencing, new concrete & asphalt paving, new walkways, new storm sewers and bioswale water retention areas, new flagpoles, new lighting, extensive landscape treatments and a 1.1 million pound monument shovel display at the southwest corner of the lot. Phase-1 work included demolition work and cutting the west half of the lot for installation of storm sewer and all underground utilities (electrical, AT&T and Time/Warner). The footings, foundation walls and slabs for the monument shovel were completed as part of Phase-1 work. Provisions were made to provide 100 temporary parking spaces during the winter months. Phase-2 work included cutting the east half of the lot, placement of curbs & gutters, bioswales, asphalt paving, concrete walkways, lighting, ornamental fencing, flagpoles, decorative stone and landscaping.
