In December 2016 Bassett Engineering replaced all of the old T-12 light bulbs throughout our office with new LED lights. A year later the numbers are in and they speak for themselves. Our electric bill has went down an impressive 27% in 2017 and our kHw usage is down 22%. Taking energy saving actions in both our homes and businesses reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help protect our climate for years to come.

The contractor, CriLon Corporation, assembled the aluminum box culvert in two sections on the roadway. The stone bed in the stream will be prepared next so that the culvert can be placed in the channel. The toewalls, headwalls and wingwalls will be installed once the culvert is placed in the stream. Backfill and compaction will then take place so that the roadway may be reopened.
We would like to say congratulations to Pitt’s American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) student chapter for their accomplishments. Our very own Connor Bassett serves as the Vice President for the chapter and is pictured in the article.
It’s been a busy week and a half at the project site. The contractor, Rylind Construction, placed shale fill on both advance approaches beyond the bridge MSE wall limits. This fill is subbase for the future approach roadway. They placed geogrid and stone backfill behind the MSE walls, removed the Jersey Barrier from the stream, placed rip-rap at all 4 corners of the bridge and restored the stream channel under the bridge.
