Irwin & Leighton, Construction Manager for Wal-Mart, awarded the complete site work contract for the Wal-Mart Superstore in Elkton, MD to JJID. A 33-acre commercial site development project, involving earthwork, utilities and paving for a 218,000 square-foot building and 15-acre parking lot, was  performed on a demanding 9-month schedule through winter conditions.

This $7-million project required over 114,000 cubic-yards of structural soil to be imported to meet fill requirements which included the removal and replacement of over 80,000 cubic-yards of unsuitable soils. On average, JJID installed approximately 2,500 cubic-yards of material per day, utilizing two different sources. Despite the adverse winter conditions encountered and the unsuitable soils that plagued the site, the project was delivered on time.
