Gary Craig approached KEGLEY, Inc. about erecting two buildings to be used for methane gas monitoring at Nelson Garden Landfill. The concern was that these had to be built in less than 60 days with no existing plans or permits from the City of San Antonio. The project had been active for several years, but funding had been delayed. To meet the financing requirement and use the funding, the buildings had to be dried-in by the end of the year, not 100% complete.
We set to work immediately and completed the design to be sent to the City of San Antonio to acquire the necessary permits. We obtained pricing from our subcontractors and began scheduling for the fast paced scope of work. Our construction team and subcontractors worked with our architect, Charles Gates, to provide a basic structure that would meet the client’s needs. The buildings were being constructed in a landfill and therefore had to be supported by concrete columns. Contractors worked extra long hours, including Christmas Eve, to ensure completion by the end of the year.
We completed the buildings’ structures at a dry-in state, meeting the end of the year deadline. Therefore, our client, Gary Craig, was able to receive the funding necessary to continue the monitoring of methane gas and sell the energy obtained to City Public Service.
