Pavement & Proving Ground Warehouse



Lebanon County, Private Client

This project involved geotechnical, civil engineering, surveying services along with construction Testing and inspection for the proposed construction of a new stand-alone Pavement and Proving Grounds Warehouse for the Fort Indiantown Gap Air Guard Station, located at 126 O’Neil Street, Annville, Pennsylvania Geotechnical services included initial site investigations, boring plan, drill inspection, soil and rock collection and testing in AEG’s in-house AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory (AMRL). Geotechnical Engineering Report presenting the published soil and geologic characteristics for the proposed building site, along with the results of the subsurface investigation, laboratory testing, structure foundation recommendations, allowable bearing capacities for foundations, and earthwork recommendations in compliance with the current International Building Code.

Surveying services included topographic mapping, boing and building layout.

Civil Engineering services included; Site plan layout of existing and proposed conditions, along with the following: NPDES permitting requirements include the development of Erosion & Sediment Pollution Control Plans (E&S) and Post-Construction Stormwater Management (PCSM) plans and narratives developed in accordance with Chapter 102 and guidelines by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP). NPDES construction permit forms will be completed. As part of the permitting requirements, AEG completed a PNDI search to determine the presence of threatened/ endangered species. AEG also coordinated with the Township and County to request the required stormwater/floodplain regulation consistency letters from the Township and County Planning.

NPDES Permit and Post-Construction Stormwater Management (PCSM) Plan preparation require stormwater volume and rate calculations as required by the NPDES permit application to determine what PCSM Best Management Practices are required. Following conceptual BMP design, AEG conducted limited infiltration testing and subsurface test pits to determine if sites are suitable for infiltration. Following development of the PCSM and E&S plans and permit application forms, AEG will submit the required NPDES package to the Lebanon County Conservation District. The NPDES permit application fee is not included in our proposal. It is assumed the client will provide any required fees.

Construction Services included construction observation and compaction testing during the construction activities, and laboratory proctor tests and concrete cylinder and mortar cube unconfined compressive strength testing
