News from Peckham
Reclamation isn’t just for Muncipalites, even private roads and parking lots can benefit from the advantages we provide. Reclamation LLC reclaimed 3 separate parking lots in Fairfield County, CT for a privately owned corporate campus. That’s 22,000 square yards reclaimed, regraded and stabilized in just 9 days. The owner was originally looking for a typical mill and fill, but due to the fatigue and cracking unstemming from an unstable subbase, they came to Reclamation LLC. The owner wanted the job done, and done right, and once he knew how the reclamation process would add stability and longevity to the parking lot the decision was made quickly. Despite the additional costs, the owner saw how much value added to this project. Tried and true, Reclamation once again saves the day!

When working in the highly congested areas of New Jersey- where space is limited, alternative off-site parking is nonexistent and a mere detour or road closure sign is simply not an option, strategic staging may be the only solution to accommodate the customer’s parking needs during the reclamation process. Avionic Instruments LLC Located in Avenel, NJ, is world-renowned in advanced power and control technology for military, commercial, and government customer base. With approximately 200 employees and a 5,200 square-yard parking lot, the Avionics project tasked our team with maintaining adequate employee parking throughout the project.
After a preliminary discussion with the owner, the engineer, and the general contractor, the objective was to complete the project in two complete phases (requiring two mobilizations). Phase 1: entrance lane and the right half of the parking lot and Phase 2: left half of the parking lot and the exit lane. This was all in effort to maintain employee parking. The installation of new storm drains challenged the grader operator with extensive pitch adjustments which made it necessary to reclaim the entire parking lot as one phase, and possibly creating a crisis for parking.
The result; employee parking was virtually uninterrupted. The employees used the exit lane to access the parking lot while we reclaimed and stabilized the entrance lane and straight to the back of the parking lot. Once this area was completed, the employees used this area for temporary parking which to our surprise, accommodated the employees while we reclaimed the parking lot.
Customer satisfaction is a function of quality workmanship, and in our business quality workmanship lends to how well we can accommodate the needs of the customer from start up to project completion.
The New Jersey Crew delivered just that.

All Great Achievements Require Time
Since 1973, Mr. Gary Wallace has been an invaluable employee of Peckham Materials Corp. Throughout the ups and downs this industry has seen, there has been one guy we could depend on – Gary. Alongside his late brother Jake, who was our “old school” quarry superintendent, Gary has worked with us for decades. Forty four years later, we couldn’t be happier (and sadder) for Gary to go off and enjoy retirement. We are sad to see you go, but happy to have been able to grow old together over the past decades.

In September, we paved our way through the Village of Millbrook’s heart. Maple Ave. was in dire need of a Mill and Fill, and our subsidiaries, Peckham Materials Corp. of Pleasant Valley and Peckham Road Corp. came out to get the job done. We supplied our paving division with superpave, for a super job, and 8 hours later, we were 1 ½” out and 1 ½” laid down! The residents, Highway Super and even the Mayor took a literal note to a job well done!

Highway Superintendent of the Town of Kingsbury was prepared to pave a light industrial park, until he spoke to us. The park had pre-existing conditions due to high truck traffic- moderate to slight deflection with a poor subbase and faced the typical municipal issue. How can it be fixed, while maintaining a budget and not causing a ton of inconvenience to the residents and travelers who needed to use the park? He needed a solution and we helped- with Full Depth Reclamation.
Our Reclamation division came in and pulverized, restabilized using foamed asphalt and reprofiled the existing road base. Peckham Road Corp, our paving division then came in and overlayed the new base with 2” of Type 6 pavement supplied from our Hudson Falls facility. The town was extremely happy, and although the process cost a bit more, the life expectancy of the road was extended which means less mill and fill and more smooth driving ahead.

Some people roll with the punches, but us, we roll with the barrels. When Deerfield Wind Farm needed ready mix concrete from our Wilmington, VT plant not even 10 years of being idle, and hurricane Irene blowing through in 2011 could stop us. We rebuilt and upgraded by way of preparation, dedication, our incredible staff, and as a result we were up and running in no time. Just because we were ready to start, doesn’t mean we were there just yet.
Since this is the first and only wind farm in the country on land owned by the US Forest Service, we still had a lot of mountains to climb- literally! The project involved miles of narrow, steep rough terrain to get to the pour site. We were practically off-roading with fully loaded concrete mixers! Off-road, or not, we got it done. We handled all phases of the project from sitework, mudslabs, pedestals, a bridge, and bases for 80 meter high wind turbines. With the project now completed, we know the risk was well worth the reward!

On September 17, 2017 we strutted our stuff down RT 44, from Traver Road all the way down to the Pleasant Valley Town Hall. The Parade was to commence the end Pleasant Valley weekend, which includes amusements, events, car shows, activities, and of course a parade! We took off with our Peckham gear on, banner, loaders and our most valued treasure, our employees and their families. Once we finished marching along, the loaders were parked the kids (and the adults too) came by to explore and sit in the equipment. We are so proud to be a part of the Pleasant Valley community, as many of us not just work here, but live here to!
