1994 | SE Alaska Engineering Project of the Year Award
Delta Western Fuel Storage Facility. Awarded to Delta Western for "fast track" design and construction of 3.6 million gallon fuel storage facility built on Lot 2A, AJ Subdivision, Juneau, Alaska. The work consisted of erecting 8 vertical above ground tanks, steel containment dike, truck loading rack with bottom loading capability, 850 L.F. of (4)6" and (2)4" above ground fuel pipes, marine dock improvements, in-water pile supports, 140'x60' pre-fabricated metal office/warehouse, site grading, oil/water separator installation, site drainage, landscaping, site lighting and computerized truck fueling stations. R&M was retained for all site surveying, inspection and civil engineering design. This work was accomplished in 4 1/2 months of which one month was during record setting snowfall accumulation. The project required extreme coordination and scheduling between local government review agencies, consultants, and the owner to expedite this project to meet the CBJ granted time extensions. The old Delta Western fuel facility was vacated and the community of Juneau could feel safe again in this neighborhood.
