Colt Firearms Industrial Redevelopment, Hartford, CT
HRP is providing civil engineering and land survey services for this historic landmark. The scope of the project includes environmental investigation, geotechnical and structural evaluations, and site redevelopment, including new site utilities and improvements. All work is being conducted to complement and facilitate historically accurate building renovations to convert a portion of the Sawtooth Building and South Armory for use as the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts for the Capitol Region Education Council
Initially, we performed a survey of the proposed area to supplement previous topographic information. A site design and layout was performed to accommodate bus traffic and parent drop-off for the proposed site entrance. Site Layout, grading and utility plans were developed as part of the Zoning Board of Appeals submittal for the placement of a private school within an industrial zone. The site layout was designed to incorporate the maximum number of school buses that could be queued on-site as well as for the maximum number of parking stalls for both students and faculty.
We conducted cut/fill analysis of the proposed development to minimize the off-site disposal of lead contaminated soils at the former Target Butt to the Colt Firearms firing range. We is coordinating the proposed stabilization of these soils to render the soils non-hazardous as well as for geotechnical suitability.
HRP also supported the project during construction by altering the drainage system design to accommodate unanticipated conditions encountered during excavation. We surveyed elevations of existing roof leaders and adjusted the storm drainage system to tie the roof leaders into the proposed drainage system.
