Supermarket chain faces fly ash problem

Mar, 07 2005


Supermarket chain faces fly ash problem Ukrops Fly Ash Problems (Richmond, Virginia) The area's busiest Ukrops will soon undergo a major renovation project. We're talking about the store on Midlothian Turnpike across from the Chesterfield Towne Center. It was built back in 1998 with fly ash under that's continuing to settle and causing problems. A big crack in the floor is caused by the foundation settling and it's actually causing the floor to tilt. One of the walls has cracked also because of the floor settling. It's a major undertaking for Ukrops. They want to make sure it's not a problem in the future. Construction work will begin in mid April and will take about a year and a half to complete. The store will stay open. You may remember the Home Depot that's located across Midlothian Turnpike from the Ukrops had similar problems because it was also built on fly ash. Back in 1999, after being open only six months, the floor developed major cracks. Crews tore down the old building and rebuilt a new home depot on the same site.
