Completed Projects

We are proud and humbled by the many jobs we have supplied and serviced over the years. Here  you will find a sampling of completed projects. We supply site-work solutions to commercial developments, DOT projects, renewable energy sites and everything in between.

Thalia Stream Restoration

2020

Newport News, VA

12:00PM to 1:00PM

Tree overgrowth and stream bank erosion threatened the livelihood of this Newport News stream. If not properly restored, the erosion would lead to flooding and increased sedimentation in the stream. A precast MSE retaining wall was installed to mitigate future erosion.

A 200-pound woven geotextile fabric was installed before the first precast concrete block was placed. The fabric wrapped behind the wall block and acts as a separator between the block and the retained backfill. The precast wall blocks were installed and voids were filled with compacted #57 stone. Once the MSE retaining wall was completed, the woven geotextile fabric wrapped over the top of the stone. Top soil and straw erosion control blanket capped the top of the structure and an HDPE pipe was installed to control drainage.

Further down the stream, coir matting was installed to control stream bank erosion close to the outlet.

Highway Expansion Project

2019

Virginia Beach, VA

12:00PM to 1:00PM

Long term interstate improvement projects require long term solutions for erosion and sediment control. This VDOT project has utilized Recyclex erosion control blankets, VDOT Approved Drainage Fabric for separating sandy soils, High Visibility Orange Barrier Fence, Silt Fence and Turbidity Curtain.

Hardscape Project

2019

Tidewater, VA

12:00PM to 1:00PM

A multi-level hardscape patio takes the place of what used to be a deck and concrete patio. The deck and lower patio were separated by a steep staircase. With premium hardscapes, the backyard has been transformed into a more unified space, perfect for entertaining.

Urban Perimeter Control

2019

Chesapeake, VA

12:00PM to 1:00PM

Diamond Sock was installed for perimeter control at this facility expansion project. Continuous pallets were selected to cut down installation time. While the machine operator carried the Diamond Sock pallet, an installer unwound the compost filter sock and staked it into place.

Commercial Development

2018

Richmond, VA

12:00PM to 1:00PM

The General Contractor wanted a well-branded site in order maximize exposure in a heavy traffic area. Colonial’s crew first installed temporary chain link and logo silt fence. Screen fence was added to chain link and custom barricades were installed to secure the site.

Renewable Energy Site

2018

12:00PM to 1:00PM

It is imperative to have a quality erosion control and stormwater management plan in place when developing a site for renewable energy. Specifications often require enhanced perimeter protection, superior soil stabilization and the planting of native varieties.

On this site, our crews installed wire reinforced silt fence, orange barrier fence and Diamond Sock. Colonial also supplied erosion control blankets, geotextiles for construction entrances, hydroseeding material and custom seed mixes.

Hydroseeding New Development

2018

Virginia Beach, VA

The contractor hydroseeded the lots on this development to get the job done quickly and thoroughly. Erosion control blankets were installed around the curbs in order to prevent erosion and washouts. Colonial provided a hydroseeding mixture that included cellulose mulch, tackifier, dye and seed.

Renewable Energy Site

2018

Surry, VA

Woven Belted Silt Fence (WBSF) was installed at this renewable energy site. The heavy duty silt fence was preferred for this long-term site in order to minimize repairs and maintenance.

New Development

2017

12:00PM to 1:00PM
Northern Virginia

A geosynthetic clay liner (GCL) was installed at the site of a new hospital development. Liners like this one can be used on steep slopes for protection against high internal sheer stress. GCLs are also commonly used on large bio-retention ponds.

Stream Restoration

2017

12:00PM to 1:00PM
Virginia Beach, VA

This stream restoration was implemented because homeowners were experiencing a high level of erosion around their properties after major rain events. Curlex Bloc was used to provide natural support for the rehabilitation of the stream bank. Final stabilization measures included coir, a native seed mix and live branches.

Stormwater System

2016

12:00PM to 1:00PM
Richmond, VA

Five sand filtration systems were installed in the development of a new shopping center. These systems have one of the highest nutrient removal ratings and offer long-term cost savings when compared to using alternative systems or BMPs.

Dulles Airport Firing Range

2016

12:00PM to 1:00PM
Dulles, VA

Geocells were installed on the berm for slope stability. Once they were in place, top soil filled the void spaces in the cells. The berm was then seeded and covered with geo-jute and Coir 900.

Chincoteague Wild Life Refuge

2016

12:00PM to 1:00PM
Chincoteague Island, VA

2,900 Excelsior Logs lined the roads of the Wildlife Refuge as a preventative measure for road improvements. These wood fiber logs were chosen because they provided an erosion control solution that would not compromise the preserve’s natural environment.
