Shoreway Environmental Center (SEC), Solid Waste Transfer Station, Materials Recovery Facility and Scalehouse
This $20 million multi-phased project included the construction of a 72,000 square foot pre-engineered metal building material recovery facility (MRF), an 8,000 square foot two-story education center, an 18,000 square foot transfer station addition, a two-story maintenance area/electrical room and new truck scales. Well-coordinated construction sequencing was required to maintain daily operations of all solid waste and recycled materials processing while constructing the new facilities on site of the existing facility. This project included the demolition and removal of existing structures, pile driving, handling of hazardous material, underground utilities, and coordination with the FAA and Pacific Gas & Electric. In addition, this project won the 2012 Gold Excellence Award for Recycling Systems from the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA). Shoreway Environmental Center is the largest Material Recovery Facility in the United States to attain this standard.
