David Boland, Inc. Awarded $19.7M Construction Contract With U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington
Titusville, FL: David Boland, Inc. has been awarded a firm-fixed contract for the Landslide Mitigation Slope Stabilization, Philpott Dam Project in Henry County, Virginia
In May of 2020, heavy rainfalls triggered a significant landslide adjacent to and downstream of Philpott Dam causing damage to the powerhouse and other infrastructure. Boland will provide slope stability remediation to reduce the risk of personnel injury and damage to infrastructure resulting from landslide activity at the Philpott Dam site.
The project will consist of construction of a secant pile retaining wall to stabilize the upper access road during the stripping and grading of the overburden, controlled stripping, removal, and regrading of the overburden to reduce the potential of slope failure in that area; temporary pre-cast concrete T-walls, draped mesh installation, and catchment fence erection to protect existing structures; construction of a stormwater detention vault to limit the increased runoff in the project area; installation of new stormwater pipes and structures to handle the increased runoff; ditch maintenance and cleanout to control and direct stormwater runoff; replacement of an existing stormwater drop inlet, culvert, and headwall to facilitate drainage; and construction of a switchgear building to house the switchgear equipment.
