CIVIL CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Barnett Southern teamed with RW Allen and Presbyterian Homes to build a new facility right outside of Athens, GA. Presbyterian Village is a Retirement and Assisted Living Facility community that offers a full continuum of care which includes independent living, and nursing care. This project is a 70-acre site that consists of 132k CY of dirt to move, 16,693 LF of sanitary sewer, 8,553 LF storm drain installation, 8,620 LF water distribution, 21,450 LF of curb and gutter and 30,640 SY of asphalt paving. Barnett Southern began this project in 2018 and the facility will open in the Summer of 2020.
SCE&G OKATIE-MCINTOSH 230KV CHANGEOUT
Barnett Southern Corporation’s complete construction solutions offers our customers more efficient and streamlined processes with specialized divisions and expertise within all service areas. Barnett Southern recently completed a project to replace a steel pole H-frame structure on SCE&G’s Okatie-McIntosh 230kV line where the line crosses the Savannah River. Since the structure is only accessible by barge, Barnett Southern was able to provide a complete job solution by providing essential logistics and support with our push boats, skilled labor, and support staff that join our experienced transmission line division for the next phase.
The work consists of mobilizing, by barge, all material and equipment to drive vibratory caissons, to assemble and erect a new steel H-frame structure, to transfer conductor from the existing structure to the new structure, and to remove the existing structure.
Combining the resources of Barnett Southern Marine and Barnett Southern Transmission & Distribution allows Barnett Southern to self-perform and provide the most efficient project possible.
Islands Expressway is a 1.10-mile roadway project constructed with Prince Contracting and the Georgia Department of Transportation. This project is in Savannah, GA at the bridge of the Wilmington River. Barnett Southern is moving over 30,000 cubic yards of dirt, placing 30,000 tons of GAB, laying 3,000 feet of storm drainage, 4,000 feet of sanitary sewer, and 2,540 feet of water lines. 32,000 sq ft of MSE walls are to be built along with over 60,000 cubic yards of backfill. Like most roadway projects, scheduling and coordination are critical in completing this successful project.
EPOCH – CLEMSON, SC
Epoch is a student apartment community that is located on Lake Hartwell in Seneca, SC. This project consists of 250k CY of dirt, 10,000 LF of storm drainage, 10 storm water quality units, 20,000 LF of sanitary sewer, 12,000 LF of water distribution, 31,000 curb and gutter, and 50,000 SY of asphalt paving. This student living community will be the state of the art for the students of Clemson University. The move in date for these students and completion of this project will be the Fall of 2019.
JEKYLL ISLAND REVETMENT & SEA ISLAND GROIN REHABILITATION
These projects again show the diverse experience of Barnett Southern. Approximately 60,000 tons of large armor stone was installed on the beaches of Jekyll Island and Sea Island on the coast of Georgia. In 2018, Barnett Southern installed truck scales and a scale house in Brunswick GA adjacent to a CSX rail spur. The armor stone was shipped via train from Vulcan Materials quarry in Sparta, GA to our location in Brunswick. During this project and others, rock from over 500 rail cars was unloaded with an excavator and transferred to over 3,000 dump trucks. Barnett Southern’s civil and logistics teams coordinated all the components for the project from setting up the yard, scheduling rock delivery from the quarry, maneuvering rail cars with CSX to delivering the product to the jobs with dump trucks. Because of the successful execution of these projects, Barnett Southern and aggregate providers will continue to work together to deliver stone to complex projects in ways few other companies can do.
HAMMONDS FERRY BALLPARK AND RIVERSIDE VILLAGE
The beautiful Riverside Village complex in North Augusta, South Carolina was a complex, fast paced project which multiple stake-holders entrusted Barnett Southern Corporation to take the lead in the complete civil site package. The development was highlighted by the new construction of the Augusta Green-Jackets stadium, and is surrounded by the Ironwood apartment complex, stadium parking deck, Crowne Plaza Hotel, and hotel parking deck. These individual sites were ongoing within the same time period and were built in conjunction with the City of North Augusta’s brand-new infrastructure system. Barnett Southern remediated this site from existing manufacturing waste at the projects beginning. The stadium is depressed below existing grade and the need for deep excavations were required including a tri-plex storm water pump station. Extensive dewatering was utilized due to the proximity of the Savannah River. All facilities were delivered on time to extremely satisfied owners.
