There is a lot of work underway at Newbury! Our site crews are fully engaged in the deep dynamic compaction work on the Newbury Market site. Deep dynamic compaction is a process in which soils are compacted using a crane-mounted weight that weighs approximately 12 tons. The weight is dropped from a specific height in a pattern in which buildings will be built. The impact of the weight then allows a load bearing site surface in which buildings can be constructed. The photo below shows the crane lifting the weight before the drop:
Here is video of the repeated drops from the crane in a section of the site:
In addition, Equitrans is up on the upper portion of the site working on the gas line relocation. Here are a few photos of the work underway:
More to come soon!
