Filling in the Foundation

With Sawyer taken down, the concrete floor slabs and basement walls recycled as fill, the contour of the land is changing. The steel reinforcing bars and other metals have already been recycled. Breaking up the concrete and using it as part of the necessary fill means (a) the fill not be transported to another site and (b) the amount of fill that must be brought in has been reduced.

Although the crushed concrete helped fill the foundation, 5,000 cubic yards of additional dirt needs to be brought in to level the site.
