Recology CleanScapes recently opened a 75,000-square-foot recycling plant in the existing warehouse at 4401 E. Marginal Way S. in Seattle. The plant processes commercial and residential commingled recyclables. Its equipment was designed, manufactured and installed by Bulk Handling Systems of Eugene, Oregon. The machines can process more than 90,000 tons of recyclables annually. Sierra Construction built out office space, poured concrete slabs and cut 4-foot-deep pits in the concrete for the machines.

Structures: Put a building right on top of a tunnel? We can do that!

2018-05-20T14:09:39+00:00

But at ground level, a bridge appears to have crashed into the site and woven its massive, rusty steel framework into the design. It's not a bridge, in fact, but the transit tunnel that the workers on the apartment project must accommodate. Because the tunnel sits as little as six feet below the apartment house at Ninth Avenue [...]
