The City of Yankton needed to replace an aging scale at their transfer station. The City asked Banner's Civil team to redesign the site to accommodate a new 80’ heavy-duty truck scale and improve traffic flow, as traffic would frequently back up onto the adjacent city street. Yankton took advantage of our multi-discipline capabilities and requested our Architectural and Structural departments to redesign the scale house to make efficient use of the existing space and improve visibility for the transfer station attendant. The project also brought the scale house and the surrounding site into compliance with ADA standards. The City was a recipient of a grant and loan through the SD DENR Solid Waste program which helped fund all aspects of the project. Banner assisted the City and the planning agency in preparing its funding application.
