Ground broke last November on the Southern Nevada Recycling Center. It will be the largest of its kind in the nation.
This project is the latest in a long line of waste management developments Cambridge Companies has taken on over the last two decades.
Notable challenges and obstacles included:
- Working with an on-site flood plain
- Removing unsuitable soils and hard dig in caliche within the areas being excavated
- The installation of the domestic water lines, fire lines, and site electric conduits has started.
- Connections to the City utilities will be completed in the next month.
The work on the tipping, bale, and process areas is currently the highest priority on the critical path. To this goal, the building structural concrete is 95% complete, the building structural steel frame is 60% complete, and the remaining structural frame will be erected in the first half of May. The portions of the building over the equipment have been prioritized for completion to allow CP to start as early as practical.
