Old Home Manor Industrial Park Improvement ProjectLast year, Civiltec was contracted by the Town of Chino Valley to design and implement a variety of infrastructure improvements for the Old Home Manor Industrial Park project. In January 2017, the team began the post-design construction phase.

The Town of Chino Valley was awarded a $1.6 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) to expand infrastructure on the east side of Town, in the vicinity of Rodeo Drive and Jerome Junction. The ultimate goal for this project is to stimulate and foster economic development in Chino Valley, as the project will provide space for new businesses to flourish.

Old Home Manor is in its third month of construction: since the beginning of the project, the contractor has completed the installation of the 12-inch water main that spans approximately 4,075 linear feet. Further, the contractor is in the process of constructing the sewer main extension from the existing lift station and has installed both 1,450 feet of sewer main and precast concrete manholes.

The team has been working together to complete the grading and paving of Jerome Junction and Road 4 North. Additionally, approximately 30% of the grading in the Santa Cruz Wash has been finished in preparation of constructing the roadway and the addition of the reinforced concrete box culvert structure.

Civiltec is preparing to test these water and sewer system expansions in the month of April. The team expects construction to be completed in July or August 2017.

For this project, Chris Dusza fills the role of Principal-in-Charge and Project Manager, while Raymond Buettner serves as Construction Manager and Andrew Shroads leads the team’s design and analysis efforts as Project Engineer. Ken DavidsonBen Tilman, Mark Myers, Doug Terrill, and Jeff Fanning round out the project team.
