Overview

Who do you call when you need a team that can quickly deliver a new parking lot strong enough to handle large trucks?

The Infrastructure team at Impetus of course! That’s why Ryder Systems Inc. engaged Impetus as the Design-Assist contractor to lead the terminal and site upgrades for Ryder’s new space in Elmwood, Louisiana. Upgrades to the 7-acre site included demolition to existing buildings as well as a 5,000 cubic-feet of stormwater retention and drainage system.

Along with site grading, Impetus’ Infrastructure team brought in 9,000 tons of new limestone, performed stone base work, concrete curb and gutter, and completed 137,000-square-feet of asphalt parking and paving. Finishing elements included striping, landscaping, fencing and lighting. Completed in 2018, this 4.5-acre project was delivered in 8 months.
