BACK / SCALEHOUSE REPAIRS AND VEHICLE STRIKE PROTECTION
Not long after completing the exterior upgrades to the two scalehouse at the City of Tacoma’s landfill, the commercial scalehouse was impacted by a commercial box truck and lifted off of its foundation. The City of Tacoma tasked KPG with providing a condition assessment, recommendations for repairs, and cost estimates for the repairs. During the next phase of the project KPG will prepare bid documents to make the repairs necessary to bring the impacted scalehouse back to its original condition. Additionally KPG is providing design concepts and construction documents to install additional vehicle strike protection in an effort to mitigate impacts such as this from happening in the future. KPG’s bollard design is not only robust but it allows for the bollard to be ‘reset’ after impact with very little effort by the City.
