Document Description
The project involves the replacement of an office with the installation of an approximately 2,100 square foot manufacture office building/trailer on an existing administrative site. The project is located at Fresno-Kings Unit Headquarters at 210 S. Academy Ave, Sanger, CA. This portable office will be replacing the current portable office which is an estimated 800 square feet. The approximately five (5) acre administrative site contains administrative buildings and support facilities. The project area is a previously disturbed mixture of native soil and gravel void of any native vegetation, as well as a pre-existing concrete pad. The pre-existing concrete pad will be removed and replaced with new concrete to better facilitate drainage away from the new portable office. The footprint of the concrete pad will be widened approximately 6 feet to facilitate a new ADA compliant ramp. Prior to laying new concrete, the ground will be leveled to insure the quality of the foundation. In addition to the new concrete pad, minimal ground disturbing activities will occur to facilitate sewer connections to the portable office building/trailer. The sewer line will require approximately 75' of trenching and will be roughly 24" deep and 18" wide. Trench spoil will be mounded adjacent to the trench and immediately backfilled/compacted. Utility connections will utilize the existing conduit in place from the office/trailer being replaced. All ground disturbing activities will occur within the perimeter of the existing administrative site. Installation activities are anticipated to take approximately 14 days to complete.
