FDR: The Solution for Clairmont Apartments
When Jory Alteri, a senior project manager from our Durham, NC division, visited Clairmont at Hillandale Apartments, he knew he could solve the distressed pavement issues and provide the owner with a solid pavement structure for Phase 2. Utilizing Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) we would be able to recycle the existing pavement and re-use the base following the stabilization with portland cement. The construction was completed in phases to allow the owner to begin selling and leasing finished units. The second, more difficult, phase of the project had several tight parking areas as well as some longer, open drive lanes. A Bomag MPH 100 reclaimer was utilized in the tight areas and a larger Wirtgen 2400 reclaimer was used along the drive lanes. Portland cement, the stabilizing additive, was then incorporated utilizing a Stoltzfus site spreader. The 20,000 square foot area was finished in one day while allowing other trades to continue working around the apartment complex.
