Donley’s Restoration Group will be completing this project for AMHA Hilltop House in early 2020. The Hilltop House is used as public housing for elderly community members and Summit County residents who need housing assistance. The six story, 78 unit property was built in 1968.
Our work started with erecting scaffolding so that residents can use their back patios as a front entrance. After, we removed and replaced the existing front entrance concrete balconies using a new steel frame and traditionally reinforced concrete slabs.
This project was design build/public bid.
Donley’s provided concrete construction services for this new four-level Amazon Fulfillment Center facility on the former Rolling Acres Mall site. Donley’s placed 72,000 cubic yards of concrete in just eight months.
Our scope of work included:
- Building foundations (approx. 18,000 cubic yards of concrete)
- Slab on grade (650,000 sq. ft. footprint) with stringent quality requirements for floor flatness (FF 50) and floor levelness (FL 34.5)
- Three levels of slab on metal deck (approx. 36,000 cubic yards of concrete) with tolerance requirements FF 30 and FL 15
- 60 loading docks with dock leveler pits
Working in conjunction with the Akron infrastructure firm of HM Miller, Donley’s constructed a 2.0 MGal combined sewer overflow structure basin on the north side of the Little Cuyahoga River, across from the existing CSO Rack 14 facility. The basin is equipped with a combination manual and automated flushing/washdown system.
Financed jointly between the City, the US EPA and the Ohio EPA, the CSO Rack 14 project is a key element in an $800 million, multi-year initiative to improve Akron’s sewer system by achieving zero untreated overflows in a typical year and improving water quality in nearby streams and rivers.
Project scope also includes:
- 140′ truss pipe bridge
- Operations building
- Site lighting, fencing, and site utilities
- Cleaning and lining the existing 15-inch and 48-inch combined sewer
The project included a 65,000 sq. ft. expansion to the east of the existing parking deck consisting of a slab-on-grade level and two elevated decks. Construction also included an 88,000 sq. ft. addition above the existing structure consisting of two post-tensioned, cast-in-place concrete decks.
With the existing parking deck needing to remain open throughout construction, exacting care and schedule coordination on the part of Donley’s was required, in order to minimize the disruption to the users of the facility. In addition, the project included a one-story extension to the stair and elevator tower, which also had to remain operational during construction.
