Shea Concrete Products’ precast 8ft x 14ft Leaching Chambers, or Galleys, were installed underneath the “Acadia on the Charles” 400-unit parking lot to enable proper storm water drainage and distribution. Located alongside the Charles River, the project required an underground stormwater retention system, as opposed to aboveground, in order to avoid neighborhood flooding.
“Shea Concrete Products provided the underground storage for the flooding, while at the same time, the structural support needed for the heavy vehicles that traverse the site on a regular basis,” Jacob Murray, a Senior Civil Engineer at Waterfield Design Group, said. “Precast concrete lasts longer and is a proven product that we know from past experiences. We’ve seen it in the application of manholes and catch basins, in which Shea Concrete and other concrete products have been used.”
Shea Concrete Products’ delivery to the “Acadia on the Charles” project is part of a larger, contract with LM Heavy Civil Construction of Quincy, MA. As part of the agreement, Shea Concrete Products will deliver additional precast galleys as well as other precast products.
