Bringing the Solutions & Expertise You Can Count On
Patriot completes over 1,000 projects a year across nearly all industries. Big or small, Patriot project teams are hand selected and tailored to fit each project’s specific needs.
Former Mud Run Gun Club in Cuyahoga Falls, OH
The former Mud Run Gun Club is located on a nearly 6-acre parcel in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. In the 1960s, the Mud Run Gun Club Association acquired the subject property and operated it as a gun range until 1995. For decades it was used as a shooting range, which included two trap fields, two trap houses with shooting stations, and a 100-yard rifle range. Based upon previous investigations, these historic activities have significantly contaminated this site to the extent that it is not safe for public access. In 1995 a conservation easement was deeded to the City of Cuyahoga Falls. The site was deeded to the City in 1999, and then in 2017 the property was transferred to the Community Improvement Corporation of Cuyahoga Falls. The property included open meadows and wooded areas. The parcel is traversed by Mud Brook from northeast to southwest. The portion of the parcel north of Mud Brook is partially wooded, with a small emergent wetland, and slopes toward Mud Brook. Site contaminants included PAHs and inorganic metals in soil and sediment. This project involved on-site soil and sediment stabilization and capping as an effective means for preventing exposure to lead contaminated soil to recreational receptors.
Patriot’s involvement on this project included remediation and stabilization of roughly 14,000 Cubic Yards of lead impacted soil. Approximately 10,000 Cubic Yards of soil was imported and installed as a 2-foot cap. This remediation allows for redevelopment of the site as a trailhead area for a regional system of hiking trails. Additional services included wetland delineation and mitigation, archeological survey, flood plain permitting, Section 404 Nationwide Permit Pre-Construction Notification, development of site-specific health & safety/sampling & analysis/ quality assurance and construction stormwater pollution prevention plans.
Renovation efforts have transformed this area into trails and public access while addressing contamination issues. This project was substantially completed by the end of June 2023. In the Fall of 2023, Patriot planted 150 trees as part of the final restoration efforts. Patriot will continue field work, remedial action completion report and possible OEPA VAP NFA/CNS report.
The North Split Reconstruction Project: I-65 / I-70 Split Indianapolis, IN
Being the second busiest interchange in the state of Indiana, this upgrade significantly enhances safety and efficiency for the 214,000 daily motorists who rely on it. The scope of this project encompassed the replacement or rehabilitation of all bridges and the construction or replacement of approximately 27 lane-miles of pavement.
Patriot’s Construction Materials Testing and Inspection team played a vital role in this endeavor. They were tirelessly at work around the clock, with up to seven dedicated staff members on-site at any given time, diligently conducting material testing in strict accordance with Indiana Test Methods (ITM). The ITM procedures they carried out included:
- ITM 506: Field determination of soil moisture content
- ITM 508: Field determination of deflection using a lightweight deflectometer
- ITM 509: Field determination of strength using a Dynamic Cone Penetrometer
- ITM 512: Field determination of maximum dry density and optimum moisture content of soil
Furthermore, Patriot also offered a comprehensive range of services, including chemical, mechanical, and mineralogical analyses of the soil. This thorough analysis was instrumental in ensuring compliance with INDOT Standard Specification Section 629 – Plant Growth Layer (Revised 11-15-17).
Patriot continues to provide materials testing as the project wraps up with repairs to surface roads and sidewalks affected by construction.
Clear Path 465 Indianapolis, IN
Safety and traffic flow are the main objectives for this project which is located on I-465 and I-69 on the northeast side of Indianapolis. By the end of 2025, there will be added travel lanes, new ramp lanes, 14 new bridges, two rehabilitated bridges, interchange modifications, pavement replacement and necessary maintenance.
Patriot’s Construction Materials Testing and Inspection group is providing the soil and concrete testing for this project.
Indiana University Health New Replacement Hospital Indianapolis, IN
Construction has began on IU Health’s new hospital in downtown Indianapolis. This $1.6 billion construction project is the largest IU Health investment to date. This project covers 44-acres and includes a new hospital as well as research and educational facilities.
Patriot’s Construction Materials Testing and Inspection group is providing concrete, soil, mat foundation and waterproofing testing and inspection on this project.
Chestnut Street Remediation Loveland, Ohio
The City of Loveland Ohio was awarded a $3.3 million grant for cleanup and remediation of an 8.33-acre property (the Chestnut Street Property). This area previously served as a sand and gravel quarry and then turned into a site for uncontrolled dumping. Patriot helped secure this approximately $3.3 million dollar grant from the Ohio Department of Development on behalf of the City to cover the costs to evaluate potential wetlands, cleanup debris piles, excavate lead-impacted soil, and remediate groundwater at the Site.
As a condition of the grant, the City will contribute an additional $1.1 million (approx.) in matching funds to the project. Patriot is currently in the final stages of wetlands permitting, the contract for debris pile cleanup and soil excavation has been awarded by the City, and the groundwater remediation bid evaluation process is nearly complete.
New Klondike Middle School Lafayette, IN
The Klondike campus in West Lafayette, Indiana is currently undergoing improvements and a new middle school is the first phase in the improvement plan! The new middle school is being built on the 40 acres of land east of the existing Klondike campus and will house a 180,000 square foot school building, serving students grades 6-8. Patriot was selected to perform construction materials testing services on this project and has/is currently providing soil testing and observations, including footing extraction observations, field density testing and proofrolling observations.
Indiana Crossroads Solar Reynolds, IN
Located in Reynolds, Indiana, the Indiana Crossroads Solar Park is a 200-megawatt solar park that broke ground in November 2021. According to the Herald Journal, more than $1 million will be disbursed by Indiana Crossroads Solar each ear to landowners and farmers who have volunteered to participate in the project. Additionally, $40 million in payments will be received by local governments over the life of the project, which can be used for improved infrastructure and essential services that area residents rely on.
Patriot was selected to perform soils testing and observations for this project, including field density testing (FDT’s) and proofrolling observations on utility lines and road areas.
