Featured Projects

Interstate Maintenance Support

Interstate Maintenance Support

PILLAR is working in 3 Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Districts monitoring contractors performing maintenance activities and support VDOT’s maintenance and asset management efforts on the interstates. This includes patrolling during winter weather events as well as coordinating incident response activities with state police, fire, and local rescue. Our monitors collect and perform needs assessments which feed into VDOT’s interstate maintenance program budget and contracting schedules.

Underground stormwater chamber inspections

Underground stormwater chamber inspections

PILLAR, Inc. performed a visual and structural inspection and developed as-built mapping of Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) underground stormwater management basins located along Route 23 bypass in Norton, VA. We produced reports by documenting basin condition through pictures and notes and developed a repair design for one of the structures. We utilized our confined space entry training and protocol along with air quality meter readings.

USDA Rural Development Inspections

USDA Rural Development Inspections

PILLAR, Inc. was contracted by the USDA to provide construction inspection services on an as-needed basis and provided all resources necessary to accomplish the required services for a 12 month period throughout various areas within the Commonwealth of Virginia. The inspection services included observing on-site construction in progress to verify how the work was proceeding; recording all building components, construction practices, and material storage/delivery practices which may not be in compliance; reviewing and verifying that projects met all mandatory requirements; preparing reports in prescribed formatting of findings; communication with the Rural Development Engineer/Architect weekly; and attendance of monthly progress meetings.

Austinville Water Treatment Plant

Austinville Water Treatment Plant

PILLAR joined forces with several other engineering firms to help in the design and construction of the new water plant on the New River. PILLAR’s responsibility in the project included boundary and topographic survey and plats for design and construction inspection for the three divisions. Division 1 consisted of the plant and intake construction; Division II included the installation of the 30” raw and 24” finish water line; Division III encompassed the hanging of a 24” concrete insulated pipe on a steel girder bridge crossing the New River. The $17 million plant went operational six months ahead of schedule. At full capacity it can treat and distribute four million gallons of water per day.
