Surrounding the North Central West Virginia Regional Airport is the Mid-Atlantic Aerospace Complex (MAAC). This complex is an industrial and business park geared to serve aviation and aerospace companies. In conjunction with the runway expansion project for the NCWV Airport, Thrasher utilized 10.7 million CY of soil cut from the project to fill low lying areas. In doing so, 250 developable acres were created, which is now the site of MAAC.
For development purposes, Thrasher’s services included survey, on-site utilities including water, sanitary sewer lift station and force main and storm water detention systems, access roads and a taxiway. Construction management services were also provided by Thrasher for this project.
Storm Water Improvements
With continuing development of industrial property the original storm water system became inadequate. The pipe and pond were not designed to handle the increased runoff. Thrasher was hired to access the situation ultimately developed a system of inlets that were installed underground and were sized to accommodate future lows. The runoff has been diverted into the existing detention basin. The basin was modified to handle additional flows and to release the runoff in a controlled fashion. The new storm drain system is large enough to handle all existing and future development in the area.
