The philosophy of using what you have without appropriating new resources is a top tier goal of sustainable design and construction. GeoInsight’s knowledge of sitework development requirements, combined with building demolition, deconstruction, and construction will yield tangible benefits when planning your next project. We understand potential contaminants within historic buildings and, when combined with our relationships with material recycling facilities, we will develop strategies to identify and maximize material recovery and waste reduction.
For many years, GeoInsight has been helping clients minimize costly off-site disposal of demolition and site development materials through recycling and reuse. We have designed projects using tire chips, low-permeability paper mill residuals, and ash/slag fill. Recycling and reuse methods to reduce off-site disposal costs include:
We have prepared numerous Beneficial Use Determination packages and associated Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPPs) that characterize:
Because natural resources are a diminishing commodity, finding a borrow source with the appropriate soil gradation and characteristics is also more difficult. We address this challenge by advising clients and sitework contractors on blending natural and recycled materials to your project’s unique specifications.
