Creativity for a Pre-Planning Strategy Goes a Long Way

What sets us apart from other site contractors is our belief that the best results come from diligent pre-project planning. It helps us mitigate risk and ensure projects are done right and completed on budget and on time. While some challenges may prove to be more difficult than others, you can count on our team to deliver solutions. When the complexity rises, we lean on our decades of experience to provide Insight. On Site., think outside the box, and provide creative solutions that deliver high-quality results. Our work during site preparation on a 107-acre site at Lehigh Valley Industrial Park in Bethlehem, PA, showcases how proactive planning coupled with creative ingenuity can go a long way to achieving project goals. Preparing this large-scale site, which is home to a 1.2 million square-foot building, included:

  • 400,000 cubic yards of earthwork
  • 25,000 linear feet of site utilities
  • 7,500 linear feet of curb
  • 40,000 tons of stone
  • 40,000 tons of asphalt

During the site investigation stage of this project, we learned there would be numerous underground obstructions to contend with and not just the rock formations or concrete typically encountered. Formerly an industrial site for Bethlehem Steel, layers upon layers of slag had to be removed in order to cut the site to grade and install utilities. While many contractors would jump to begin, they would inevitably spend extra time and materials trying to overcome or figure out a way around the problem. With a little more probing and creativity in the early part of our process, we proactively crafted a plan to fracture the slag prior to installing all of the site’s sanitary, storm, and water utilities. An added bonus, the crew was able to recycle and process the nearly 25,000 cubic yards of rock and concrete they encountered and use it for the sub-base material on the project (rather than obtaining material from a quarry), which led to cost savings for our client. Following the massive excavation, Brubacher utility crews successfully installed two 60” diameter RCP storm sewer outfalls with up to 100’ of elevation change.

Despite every obstacle, we stayed within budget because we put in a little extra time and creativity up front. At Brubacher, we value results and relationships. We look out for our clients and commit to being good stewards of their resources on every project from the start.
