Verdantas provided comprehensive civil, environmental, geotechnical, traffic and construction services for the construction of a 1.6 million square foot, state-of-the-art Amazon Logistics Center on a 125-acre site in central New Castle County, DE. The site was a former borrow pit that required extensive regrading and fill. Soft soils conditions require a ground improvement program consisting of deep dynamic compaction.
All studies, design, and project approvals were accomplished in an expedited manner in less than seven months. The Verdantas team worked closely with the owner, construction manager and building tenant to address design and operational changes requested during the latter stages of design and throughout the construction process. Project construction, including over 800,000 cubic yards of site earthwork, was completed in 10 months.
