YMCA Camp Belknap
Mirror Lake, New Hampshire
Camp Belknap Main Campus Sewerage Treatment Project involved the construction of a new sewage treatment system, sanitary sewer trunk line, and lateral system to replace an existing treatment system. The existing system, an open lagoon and spray irrigation system, became outdated and under capacity for the camp's long term master plan. The greatest challenge for the team was to construct the new system while the old system was on-line supporting camp summer programs. The system, designed for maximum flow during the active summer season, required commissioning during the camps peak enrollment time. The phased decommissioning of the existing system while operational commissioning was accomplished through planning and scheduling with all members of the project team as well as the state agencies having jurisdiction.
Sunday River Ski Resort
Integrity Earthworks was awarded the contract to construct a new 4,600 foot ski trail at Sunday River, in Newry, ME. The trail will service new development at the Glades subdivision, off the Ridge Run trail. The Glades at Ridge Run allow for ski-in, ski-out access from North Peak and South Ridge slopes. The new trail is being constructed under the direction of the Engineering Department at Sunday River. The trail will have a gentle slope to match with the existing topography and serve as access for the potential new owners at the 7 new lots.
Integrity Earthworks was contracted by Bonnette Page & Stone Construction to perform site work and utility work at The Mill on River Bend, in Franklin New Hampshire. The project consisted of the historic preservation and renovation of the existing mill building and site for the use as residential apartments. The site is located on the Winnipesaukee river where it drew from the hydro power of the river flow. This Mill however did not have the conventional mill wheel, but rather turbines located in the bottom of the mill driven by a penstock (a sluice or intake structure that controls water flow, or an enclosed tunnel that delivers water to hydro-turbines). The penstock drew water from the river ½ Mile upstream, and down through the center of the site. The existing building literally had a river running through it. Many parts of the remaining turbine machinery would be used as architectural elements in the finished building. The site work included locating the penstock to avoid conflicts when coordinating underground utilities. Because of the nature of the first floor being 50% below grade, the need to bring in outside light, and outside awareness to residents on the lower floors, retaining walls were constructed adjacent to the building. These areas required drainage. Site conditions required these drains to travel under the building to the river's edge. A central courtyard was constructed as an outdoor gathering area. This area required hardscapes, granite benches constructed of stone found on the original mil sire, some of the old mill machinery as features, as well as extensive landscaping.
