Terracon provided geotechnical services and construction materials engineering, testing, and inspection for Costco Wholesale Corporations’s first warehouse club in western New York. The Costco store anchors the $250 million, 45-acre CityGate development site which has future plans for hotels and residential units looking over the Erie Canal.
Terracon conducted a Phase II environmental site assessment, and associated services, for a developer seeking to purchase the Gannett Building. A historic industrial and commercial facility, the Gannet Building was originally constructed in 1927 with later additions. The facility housed the well-known Gannett Newspaper printing facilities. Operated by the Gannet Newspaper, The Democrat and Chronicle now occupies the building.
Terracon worked with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to assist a local developer in preparing a remediation work plan, project health, and safety plan, to remediate 3,000 tons of petroleum contaminated soil caused by a leaking fuel oil line that occurred during operation of a former machine shop. Terracon provided remedial oversight during the soil removal and transport to a permitted landfill facility. A remedial closure report and soil groundwater management plan were prepared to allow the development of a new 64-room hotel.
