This is one of two multi-tenant retail buildings (22,000 SF plus for both) which make up Perryville Crossing in Perryville Missouri. This was a property next door to a new Wal-Mart which had just opened months before we started work; the first thing we did after establishing siltation control was to blast the red sandstone rock which was present over much of the property so we could achieve the required grades. The process of blasting was precisely controlled to the extent that we were able to blast the rock (which ‘liquefied’ into loose sand after blasting) within 4’-5’ of Wal-Mart’s main water supply line without damage. Another challenge we faced besides the usual fast track retail schedule was to avoid repeating what Wal-Mart’s contractor had done: send silt into Lake Perryville, which was downslope from our sites. We placed and maintained multiple lines of defense against runoff, including making it through one particularly massive summer thunderstorm which threatened our defenses—but everything held and we earned the City of Perryville’s praise for our efforts.
