Construction And Planning

Construction Project planning and programming — Construction and Planning staff members can provide guidance in developing  a construction program for an organization or unit of government for a specific purpose, and can produce construction program  documents for use in relating design needs to consultant/designers hired by Construction and Planning or the organization.

Design of small projects — The Construction and Planning staff, which includes architects and project managers, has the capability  of providing support to the client organization design services on projects. The advantage of having an in-house project management  team is enhanced by the working knowledge of state government processes and procedures which the Construction and Planning  staff maintains through daily activities.

Design And Construction Procurement — The Construction and Planning office is set up to manage the process which governs the  correct procurement of all types of design and construction services. Our primary business is the hiring and supervision of private-  sector design firms, and the bidding and management of construction work performed by private-sector construction firms.  


A landfill is a large outdoor site specifically designed for the disposal of waste. Not all landfills are the same. Different kinds of landfills accept different kinds of waste including:

  • Industrial waste
  • Hazardous waste
  • Construction and demolition debris
  • Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), commonly defined as household trash or garbage.

When you think of a landfill, you probably are thinking of the landfill that accepts your household trash or garbage.
