Bobbitt was chosen by Waste Management to design and build a new 41,000-square-foot Material Recycling Facility (MRF) to house the massive material sorting and bundling equipment, including a bridge conveyor from the new building into an existing building. Heavy floor slabs were required to support the heavy wheel loads of fully loaded semi-trucks and front end loaders that dump material into the sorting pit. A 12’ concrete push wall allows the front end loaders to push material up against the wall while they scoop it up into their buckets.
The MRF building was built on the same site as an active transfer station. Careful coordination between the client’s site manager and Bobbitt’s Superintendent allowed both activities to progress relatively unimpeded. The Covid-19 pandemic hit not long after construction began, but proactive coordination with subcontractors with respect to appropriate safeguards and scheduling allowed Bobbitt to finish on schedule.
