BELLEVUE, Washington (August 5, 2014) – PCL Construction Services, Inc. is pleased to announce it will provide general contracting services for King County’s new Factoria Recycling and Transfer Station.


 
“The Factoria station accommodates the county’s rapid growth and the need to collect, recycle, and transfer our communities’ waste in a more sustainable manner,” said Tyler Kautz, PCL project manager.
The enhanced Factoria Recycling and Transfer Station is projected to produce 25 percent energy savings, and to bring about a reduction in truck trips and greenhouse gases while addressing the area’s population growth.
The project is pursuing LEED® Gold certification and will be completed in four phases that will allow for undisturbed services to the existing facility. The project team will first demolish multiple on-site buildings and then construct 14 deep dewatering wells, a 1.5-million-gallon detention vault, a waste transfer building, hazardous waste building, and maintenance and operations area, and will involve extensive site work and landscaping.
The project will break ground in September 2014 and will complete in June 2017. For more information, visit King Country Solid Waste Division’s page on the new station project.
