SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
Town of Brookhaven Landfill
Provided permitting, design, construction monitoring and certification services for the construction of a 17,000 SF addition to the Town of Brookhaven’s existing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Transfer Station Building. The project involved the erection of a 90’ by 190’ clear span, for a metal building designed to handle the transfer of over 1000 tons of MSW per day. A climate controlled office/break room was provided with bathroom facilities. Over 4500 tons of asphalt and 200 linear feet of 12’ high pre-cast concrete pushwall were installed. A significant cost savings was realized when LKMA developed a design that utilized and expanded upon an existing concrete ramp/pit. This ramp/pit expansion allowed for continuous trailer traffic flow and expedited trailer loading.
In 2009, LKMA was hired by the Town’s Department of Waste Management to permit and design a new fueling station at the Brookhaven Landfill. The new facility would not only serve the Department’s fueling needs (diesel and gasoline) but serve as a regional fueling facility for local ambulance districts, fire departments and other Town of Brookhaven Departments. LKMA secured all permits from the County, prepared contract drawings and specifications for construction and observed the tank installation/construction of fueling facility. The fueling station is backed up by an emergency generator and has served the Town’s fueling needs since 2010.
Design and construction monitoring of a 2,000 SF concrete block and steel building scale monitoring stations, offices, and break room area. The scale house includes reflective glazing, full video surveillance systems integrated into the invoice software and monitoring of personnel, radiation detection system, computerized billing, pneumatic dispatch systems, motorized server drawers and an emergency generator. The project also included an information booth with similar amenities.
Installation of a new utility flare for landfill gas control at the Town of Brookhaven Landfill including construction of new inlet piping.
Smithtown Landfill - Cell 6 CAP Closure Project
Town of Smithtown, Department of Environment and Waterways
Design and construction monitoring (certification) for cap closure construction of the 25 acre area of the Town of Smithtown’s Cell 6 Landfill on Old Northport Road in Kings Park. The project involved the preparation of an engineering design report, cap closure construction plans and a QA/QC Report for the purpose of obtaining approval from the NYS DEC. The site was challenged by limited area for yard waste handling & processing operations which were conducted on the inactive landfill. The final design incorporated the construction of a new roadway and waste processing area situated between the capped landfill and recreational softball fields. The cap closure project was completed in 10 months (from September 2009 to July 2010) and received final certification approval from the NYS DEC in October 2010. The project was constructed by Terry Contracting & Materials of Riverhead, NY.
Intermediate Processing Facility
Town of East Hampton, NY
Design, permitting, and construction monitoring services for a 20,000 SF Material Recycling Facility (MRF) including adjoining 3,000 SF administration and education center. All of the work was performed in conformance with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Part 360 and Suffolk County Health Department Regulations.
