Husky Green Team
Husky Stadium Construction
One of the primary focuses of the renovation of Husky Stadium is ensuring the project is sustainable. The following are initiatives that will help the project stay green.
• On site source separation of demolition debris and construction waste will be utilized. Project goal is to recycle, re-use or salvage for re-use by others a minimum of 96% of all debris and waste.
• Starting at site mobilization, Salmon-Safe best management practices will be utilized to make the Husky Stadium Renovation a Salmon-Safe project. The University of Washington is a Salmon-Safe certified campus and Turner Construction is a Salmon-Safe accredited contractor. The Salmon-Safe organization is interested in partnering with the Husky Stadium Renovation Project to create a featured construction project. More information about Salmon-Safe is available at www.salmonsafe.org.
• The existing football field synthetic turf surface will be removed and stored for installation at another local field.
• Crushed concrete from the existing stadium structure will be used as fill material on site to the maximum extent possible.
• Aluminum benches from the existing stadium are being evaluated to be salvaged for re-use as drink rails in the renovated stadium.
• The 70,000 square foot Football Operations Building will be pursuing LEED Gold Certification as part of the project.
The concrete from the now-demolished 62-year old south grandstands has been recycled as backfill for the north lower bowl of the new Husky Stadium.
* A total of 26,292 cubic yards of recycled concrete is being used as fill on the construction site. This approach saves over 1,300 dump trucks leaving the site with demolition debris and another 1,300 dump trucks that would be required to bring new fill back to the site.
* Over 5,700 tons of steel from the south grandstand was demolished with 97% of it recycled.
* Turner Construction built two water quality management ponds. Those ponds have cleaned 1,000,000 gallons of water prior to discharging it off-site.
