Our projects speak for themselves

Route 1 North Sewer Improvements

This project consisted of upgrading the existing 12” sanitary sewer with 4,000 LF of 30” ductile Iron pipe and 17 manholes. Key components included a 600 LF micro-tunneling operation to install 48” steel casing pipe. The project required over 2,000 LF of sanitary pump around. Depths of installation along with the proximity to the stream and Route 1 made this project a true challenge. Our crews navigated these challenges with ease as they completed another successful project for Stafford County.


Vint Hill Public Street Network– Phase I

We were excited to work on the former Army and NSA base near Warrenton to demo 45,000 SY of outdated roadways and parking lots and build new infrastructure including 9,800 LF of roadway. The project had 60,000 CY of excavation; over 4 miles of water, sanitary and storm pipe; 18,000 LF of curbs; over 14,000 tons of CTA and 11,000 tons of asphalt paving. Sidewalks and trails were welcome amenities for local users. A groovy roundabout improved traffic flow and this new roadway network improves connectivity for the public and planned future growth.


Hospital Point Sewer

A gravity sewer replacement project very close to the Potomac River not to mention beneath many different buried utilities. Since the work was over 30’ deep on the USMC base in Quantico, we elected to use a trenchless method using HDD. Despite a myriad of soils conditions, the project was completed without disruption to existing utilities and to the complete satisfaction of the Navy.


National Museum of the Marine Corps Expansion

Under the leadership of the Heritage Foundation and contracted through Balfour Beatty, W.C. Spratt laid the foundation for a 50,000 square foot expansion of the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico. Our scope of work included removing 60,000 cubic yards of earth bunker behind the existing museum. We used this material as fill for a new drive entrance and parking lot and also installed several bio-retention ponds and a mile of site utilities.


Sumner Retail Center

Grading and utility project for a future Royal Farms franchise and two future lots for later development. This work included excavation of over 8,000 CY, installation of over 2,100 LF of 12͟ waterline (including a bore under Route 17, 450 LF of new sanitary sewer install, site lighting, upgraded traffic signals, stone, asphalt, and pavement markings to 3 new paved roads and a new turn lane from Route 17.
