Construction manage and perform contractor assist work for piling excavation, foundation, utility installation and paving trades. Mass grade and finish grade for test track +/- .10
Means and Methods:
AMPCO employed its large fleet of excavators for the demolition and hazardous soil remediation and removals. Then 657 scrapers and D9 bull dozers were used to fill, compact and mass grade the entire site. Dozers, blades and other equipment were utilized to finish grade and build the test track.
Navigating the design changes were significant. Porsche North America changed designs nearly every month to create the most forward-thinking test track in the world. Every design change affected the landfill cap, which in turn required the approval of all the lead agencies, including DTSC- AQMD- County of L.A and the City of Carson. AMPCO played a vital role in expediting the approval process and implementing the change orders.
