One interesting fact about Sloan is that it was a founding member of the SC Asphalt Pavement Association.
Sloan Construction is extremely proud of its work at Patewood Memorial Hospital and the I-585/I-176 Widening & Reconstruction Project in Spartanburg, SC.
Sloan Construction’s work on the rehabilitation and construction of new parking lots at Patewood Memorial Hospital included a porous asphalt application, where open graded surface asphalt was placed over an underlying stone recharge bed. The water drains through the porous asphalt into the stone bed then slowly infiltrates into the soil. This process is highly effective when land use is minimal and allows for land development practices which are more sustainable and compatible with natural processes. A porous asphalt application allows more conservation of water, reduces runoff, and promotes infiltration which filters storm water, replenishes aquifers and protects streams.
Sloan Construction’s work on I-585/US-176 earned it the Pinnacle Award from the Carolinas Association of General Contractors. This major project for the SC Department of Transportation involved widening and upgrading five miles of US-176 and reconstructing the I-585 Interchange in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The scope of the project included five bridges, new ramps, frontage roads and mainline arterials. At completion, more than 416,000 CY of earth were moved and 194,000 tons of asphalt were placed. The bridge portion of the project consisted of three-phased reconstruction of bridges over the I-85 Business Corridor, continuous steel integral cap flyover bridge, three new single-span Modified Bulb Tee girder bridges with MS walls and temporary shoring. Bridge foundations consisted of H-Pile and drill shafts. The project included staged demolition of two cast-in-place-concrete girder bridges over major highways using lane closures and pacing operations. This project was also a gateway project for the University of South Carolina Upstate, and Sloan Construction worked in close coordination with university officials and the general community during the construction phases. This project met all incentive dates set by the SCDOT and ultimately was awarded the CAGC Pinnacle Award for "Best Heavy Highway Project."
