Project Description

Maxymillian performed extensive, multi-phased site work operations for the new 246,520 SF Taconic High School construction project in Pittsfield, MA.  Site work operations for the $121.8 million academic/vocational secondary school were performed in three primary phases. The overall scope included new building footprint excavation, installing all exterior utility infrastructure, including sewer, water, drainage, and electric, as well as, interior utilities (sewer, drainage and electric), drainage, a pre-cast bridge, and constructing new parking lots, roadways, rain gardens, ballfields, a 2,700 SF wetland replication area used in curriculum, and extensive landscaping. During building excavation, Maxymillian unexpectedly encountered 3,000 cubic yards of “unsuitable soils” that were excavated and replaced with off-site “structural fill”. With a 40 year history in site remediation, Maxymillian efficiently and effectively handled all contaminated soil and off-site disposal. This allowed the operations of all site contractors to proceed on-schedule, without negative impact, resulting in an on-time school opening.
