Viking Building – Civil Infrastructure
Alongside the construction of the Viking Building, Delaney constructed all new infrastructure to service the Viking Building and future park development including a Sewer Lift Station, Full Right-of-way Road infrastructure,
We also built a storm conveyance line using both slide-rail shoring and box shoring, and we constructed an outfall structure for the conveyance line. Because the line is connected to the Puyallup River, we coordinated these activities with multiple permitting authorities, as well as the local offices of Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife and Native American tribal authorities. Over the years, we’ve learned that our expertise in communicating with local and regional agencies makes any construction project much easier to manage—for us and for our clients.
Construction projects like this one rarely proceed without obstacles, and the Viking Building was no exception. We have the expertise to manage these complications and keep projects moving forward.
For the Viking Building, we worked to address the following.
Lack of access: We constructed more than 3,000 linear feet of access roads so trucks could access the building site and to allow expansion of the right-of-way.
Multiple municipalities: Because the Viking Building project required oversite by the City of Puyallup and its county, we managed communications, inspections and permits with multiple municipal agencies.
Groundwater and soil conditions: The Viking site’s high groundwater and wet soil presented challenging obstacles that Delaney was able to overcome. We worked with the Department of Ecology, as well as city and county agencies, to evacuate water to the Puyallup River. We also took extra measures to ensure the structural integrity of the building.
