TERRADON Corporation provided services for the development of Tanyard Station, a 50-acre retail development in Barboursville, WV. The project allowed for 33 acres of ‘pad ready’ retail space. Retail space that is built out and operational includes brands such as Sheetz, Verizon, Aspen Dental, Longhorn, Menards, and Aldi serving as anchors.

TERRADON provided services from the inception of the project including environmental assessments, survey, permitting, mitigation design and oversight, erosion and sediment control design, quality assurance and quality control, testing and engineering consulting. Upon completion, TERRADON provided as-built surveys of the site and elevation and geotechnical certification for each individual pad. TERRADON’s services included typical and specialty inspections such as compaction, concrete placement, steel, utility installation and box culvert installation.

TERRADON designed a 958 linear foot box culvert to allow for Tanyard Branch to be filled and create retail space and parking above. The culvert was designed to pass the 100 year flood elevation of Tanyard Branch and provided capacity of the Mud River to surcharge back into the culvert and alleviate flooding within the village. The culvert can withstand 35 feet of fill material placed on top of it. The closure of Tanyard Branch brought opportunity for mitigation which was performed offsite. The mitigation not only fulfilled permit requirements, but allowed for improvements to the local park where it was performed.

The development of the project was required to mitigate for threatened and endangered species onsite. TERRADON utilized a subconsultant to perform an acoustic bat survey and TERRADON performed a habitat assessment of the subject property. Both assessments were utilized to develop a plan to mitigate potential impacts to the habitats which included the planting of vegetation onsite to promote onsite habit as well as the placement of bat houses offsite.

The Tanyard Station Development project received an Associated Builders and Contractors of WV “Excellence in Construction” Award in 2020.
