150,000 s.f. renovation of Building 68 on the Rock Island Arsenal for the US Army Corps of Engineers:

  • (6) Private restrooms
  • Office Space
  • Break Room
  • Private video teleconference / conference Rooms
  • Replacement of windows and exterior door units to meet current force protection / anti-terrorism standards
  • Emergency backup generator

Due to the age of the building, Russell partnered with the United States Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) to ensure the building met the requirements to stay a part of the National Building Historical Register.

In order to “Go Green” and have a minimal impact on the environment, an extensive waste management plan was implemented to reduce the amount of job-site waste generated on this project. This plan entailed the Russell project team to recycle an assortment of jobsite materials such as: carpet, metal, wood, glass, drywall, ceiling tile, paper, cardboard, concrete and other general waste materials. In total this project generated 1,123.237 tons of waste materials. However, 916.942 tons, or 81.63%, of construction waste was diverted from landfills for this project alone.
