New Galvanizing Plant – Columbus, Ohio

Voigt & Schweitzer LLC manufactures hot dip galvanized steel products primarily for the construction and transportation related industries. Prior to purchase of this site, Voight & Schweitzer contracted STONE to perform a Phase I ESA of the property. STONE then was retained to provide engineering services for environmental permitting and site development of the approximately 13-acre site where a new 50,000 square foot manufacturing building and associated outdoor storage and parking areas would be constructed.

A City of Columbus Site Compliance Plan was prepared that depicted the entire project and showed utilities, setbacks, easements, access roads, sidewalks, paved and unpaved areas, and other related structures. This plan was routed through all City of Columbus divisions for comments. Detailed plans for construction were then prepared, including storm water management, drainage calculations, utilities, site grading, sidewalks, and roadways. Work included coordination of utility improvements with the building architect and MEP consultant, as well as a site layout that included a stream corridor protection zone.

STONE also prepared separate Notices of Intent (NOIs) for construction and industrial storm water discharges, associated SWP3s, the Ohio EPA air permit to install and operate application for the zinc kettle and acid cleaning tanks, and the City of Columbus wastewater discharge permit application.

“STONE performed the ecological survey, environmental sites assessment, wetland delineation, waterway permit for 20 culverts throughout Monroe and Washington Counties. They also prepared the environmental document. We got praises from Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Office of Environmental Services (OES) about their performance. They were a pleasure to work with and were always very responsive.”
