|20140326332||WATER PUMPING STATION WITH AN INTEGRAL VALVE VAULT - A waste or storm water pumping station and system used to pump water from a lower elevation to a higher elevation during the process of moving or managing the water is disclosed herein. The pumping station has a wet well collection chamber with a sloped floor and an integral valve vault chamber cast within the pump station body, which results in increased storage capacity in the wet well chamber for pump station components. Additionally, the pumping station may be installed as a single unit of equal depth to eliminate differential settlement and multiple or uneven excavations.||11-06-2014|
|20140314501||MECHANICALLY STABILIZED EARTH RETAINING WALL SYSTEM AND METHOD OF USE - A retaining wall system is provided for mechanically stabilizing an earthen wall. The system comprises anchor receiving channels, anchoring tie back strips, and a plurality of connecting anchors. A face panel comprises at least one fastener receiving channel and a prefabricated wall fascia panel. Tie back members extend from the wall panels and are to be embedded within the earthen soil or backfill material thereby securing the tie backs and the wall panels in a fixed assembled, position.||10-23-2014|
|20140286703||UTILITIES ACCESS CLOSURE - A concrete lid for an in-ground utilities box includes a plastic reinforcement structure filled with concrete. The plastic reinforcement structure includes one or more plastic sidewalls that protect the edges of the lid from damage. The upper and lower surfaces of the lid are exposed concrete (with the exception of the upper and lower edges of the one or more plastic sidewalls). The one or more plastic sidewalls laterally surround a plastic reinforcement grid, which is centrally located between the upper and lower edges of the one or more plastic sidewalls. The one or more plastic sidewalls can be integrally formed with the plastic reinforcement grid. The plastic reinforcement grid reinforces the concrete lid, eliminating the need for separate reinforcement material. Support struts can be used to support the plastic reinforcement grid while wet concrete is being poured into the plastic reinforcing structure.||09-25-2014|
|20140138387||LOCKING SUBGRADE VAULT - A subgrade vault system with a locking lid assembly is provided. Specifically, a subgrade vault suitable for housing utility and similar equipment is provided, the vault comprising a main body portion, a cap, and a lid that may be selectively secured with one or more rotatable locking mechanisms to prevent or deter unauthorized access to vault contents.||05-22-2014|
|20120201603||Method and Apparatus for Capturing, Storing, and Distributing Storm Water - A precast concrete storm water assembly comprised of a plurality of modular precast concrete components is provided. More specifically, a fluid collection and containment system is provided that comprises a plurality of underground modules and permeable devices, such as ground level pavers, to allow the ingress of fluid at a predetermined rate. Various permeable and non-permeable conduits are also contemplated for conveying fluid within the system.||08-09-2012|
|20120111866||LOCKING SUBGRADE VAULT - A subgrade vault system and method of forming the same is provided. Specifically, a subgrade vault suitable for housing utility and similar equipment is provided, the vault comprising a main body portion, a cap, and a lid that may be selectively secured to prevent or deter unauthorized access to vault contents.||05-10-2012|
|20100186293||Landscape Edger With Adjustable Connection Mechanism - An edger is provided that includes a cylindrically shaped attachment member that includes at least one tooth for interlocking relationship with another attachment member. The interlocking relationship prevents relative motion between the attached edgers. The edger further comprises a plurality of arcuate members that help support the wall against the restrained pavers and which provide stiffness to the wall.||07-29-2010|
|20080311379||Apparatus & Method for Manufacturing a Reinforced Low-Density Insulative Material - A reinforced low density material is provided that includes a reinforcing mesh or other geometry. The reinforcing mesh in one embodiment of the present invention is comprised of an arrangement of glass fibers that are coated with a polymer. The insulative material is formed by placing the reinforcing mesh within a mold, wherein the introduction of a heated expanded polystyrene, for example causes the coating on the reinforced mesh||12-18-2008|
|20080276559||Low Density Concrete Wall Panel With Reinforced Insulation Members - An insulated wall panel is provided that employs a plurality of spaced insulated members that define cavities within the body of the wall panel. The insulation panels that form the cavities may be constructed of a reinforced insulating material, such as expanded polystyrene. The insulated wall panels may include a reinforcing mesh, preferably fiberglass coated with PVC embedded within the body of the EPS foam during fabrication. The strengthened EPS foam blocks have the advantage of being lightweight and very durable, thereby reducing handling damage, for example.||11-13-2008|
