Waste Management at Your Convenience in Anderson County
In 2021, LaBella was awarded two convenience center projects in Anderson County, South Carolina. The King David Convenience Center project includes providing professional engineering services related to the expansion of the center, while the Parker Bowie Convenience Center project involves redeveloping the center.
King David Convenience Center
LaBella Associates is currently under contract with Anderson County to provide professional engineering services related to the expansion of the existing King David Convenience Center. We began serving Anderson County’s solid waste needs in 2012.
The King David Convenience Center expansion project includes permitting the conceptual layout approved by the County, developing design calculations and drawings, construction permit applications, and developing an opinion of construction cost.
Specific changes to the facility design include:
A new concrete pad for two new compactors
A new concrete pad for pre-crusher location
Demolition of the existing concrete pad and construction of a new concrete pad for the existing compactors
Revisions to the site stormwater control and conveyance system
New asphalt and concrete pavement design
Installation of a 12-foot-by-18-foot pre-engineered building
Retaining wall design
Relocating power to compactor locations
Bid phase services involves preparing the contract documents, technical specifications, and construction plans; assisting Anderson County in advertising the project to potential bidders; holding a pre-bid meeting; responding to bidders’ questions; assisting the County in evaluating the bids received; and making a recommendation for the contract award.
Construction phase services include construction administration and construction quality assurance services during the construction phase. The project also includes locating existing underground utilities and amending the Comprehensive Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (C-SWPPP) for the site.
Parker Bowie Convenience Center
We are currently providing solid waste engineering services to Anderson County for the redevelopment of the Parker Bowie Convenience Center. The project includes demolishing the old convenience center and constructing a new, larger center that meets the County’s growing population.
This project involves a topographic survey, a conceptual layout, a foundation and septic study to construct an on-site wastewater system, design calculations and drawings, construction permit applications, developing a construction cost estimate, bid phase services, and construction administration and construction quality assurance services.
The facility design, calculations, and drawings for this project included the following components:
Prefabricated office building with restroom(s)
Demolition of existing structures
Updated site stormwater control and conveyance system
Asphalt and concrete pavement design
Retaining wall design
Compactors leachate collection system
Relocating power to compactors and office
