Frontier Bus Depot Maintenance Facility Improvements
How We Helped:Provide labor, material, tools, and equipment to supply and install new storm water system to support facility improvements at the SEPTA Bus Maintenance Facility
Berner Construction was awarded a contract from D. A. Nolt, Inc. to support the facility improvements at the SEPTA Frontier Bus Depot Maintenance Facility. The intent of this project is to replace the roofing systems on two buildings; capture and store the rainwater from the building roofs for use in the bus washing facility; improve drainage inside and outside the buildings and in the parking lot, replace the storm water drainage system; and repave the entire facility.
Berner’s scope of work included the following:
- Clearing and grubbing the areas that were to be disturbed for the storm water system and proposed meadow areas.
- Installation and removal of erosion and sedimentation control measures to prevent soil erosion and discharge of soil bearing water runoff or airborne dust to adjacent properties and walkways.
- Supply and installation of storm water system including: 21 inlets, 6 manholes, 8 endwalls, strategically located cleanouts, and 2,200 linear feet of reinforced concrete pipe ranging in size from 12″ to 36″ in diameter
- Demolition of existing storm water facilities
- Install cast iron roof leaders to convey rain water to the storm water system
- Replace ductile iron water piping and PVC sewer piping as necessary based on interference with storm water piping
- Grading and restoration of the disturbed areas including placing topsoil, planting trees, seeding, and mulching along the riparian buffers and meadows.
The project during was completed in four phases so that the Bus Maintenance Facility could be fully operational and unimpeded during the construction activities.
