SSRG has a long history of successful partnerships with Rumpke Waste & Recycling. So when Rumpke’s operations in Medina County, Ohio, required upgrades, they called SSRG.

The facility needed comprehensive structural and functional modifications, but needed to remain occupied at all times. SSRG completed the project using the Design-Build model, working with architect Luminaut. It was completed using public funding and with no interruption to public service capacity.

The old warehouse did not have the structural integrity to support the new recycling sorter Medina invested in. In order to accommodate the new machine, many modifications were needed, both to support the new machine and to improve functionality.

This recent project required careful rigging around active machinery [8]

The largest scope was concrete. Modifications to the tipping floor improved funcionality of the space. The tipping floor is where trucks dump their loads for estimators to scoop and load into compactors. SSRG’s crew modified the tipping floor to make it a drive-through area. They also made pits so that all trucks could unload on one side of the building. This streamline traffic flow helps with production and efficiency.

Other scope included reinforcing the structural framing, doors, and new cut-outs in the walls for conveyors. The crew also completed building envelope modifications, as well as pouring parking lots and driveways.

The team completed the project successfully, with no impact on the operations of the facility or the surrounding campus.
