FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Team Gemini Continues to Achieve Milestones in its Grove City Project
The company’s innovative Center of Resource Recovery and Recycling (COR3) in Central Ohio will raise the bar in sustainable waste management
(Orlando, Florida) – Team Gemini, LLC, a sustainable project design and development company based in Orlando, has released its mid-year update on the progress of the Gemini Synergy Center at Grove City, Ohio—the company’s flagship sustainable industrial park, which broke ground in December 2013 and has since been making progress in clearing out the land and excavating the site as needed for foundations and a new entry road for the project.
Team Gemini Project Cardinal, LLC (“Team Gemini”) is very excited about the continued progress on its project in Grove City, Ohio. This project, awarded to Team Gemini in an RFP process by SWACO over a year ago, continues to make headway and is closer and closer to its realization. The holistic approach of this project, along with the strength of its team members, was planned to be built in at least two phases.
The first phase, known as the Center of Resource Recovery and Recycling (“COR3”), will be one of the largest recycling centers of its kind in the United States. Starting late next year, the project will be starting the hiring process with its facility operator, ReCommunity Ohio, LLC (recommunity.com), estimating that over 410 people will be needed to operate this facility.
Team Gemini broke ground last December on the new entry road for both the Franklin County Landfill and the COR3 facility. Although there have been numerous changes to the road design and weather delays, Team Gemini, its designers and contractors are actively working with SWACO to resolve and implement the changes needed to keep the new entry road portion of this project moving forward.
To date, Team Gemini has achieved all of its major milestones in the agreement between SWACO and Team Gemini on the entire COR3 project, with only one item remaining, which has a completion date in the summer of 2016.
“This is a very large and complex project that will bring prosperity and progress to Central Ohio,” said Mr. Doug Haughn, President of Team Gemini, “and there are many details, activities, contributors and events that must be orchestrated to keep the project moving forward smoothly.” Furthermore, Mr. Haughn adds that “Everyone involved in the project has been very supportive and valuable in helping make this project a reality, but in that process there are often misunderstandings or confusion on some of the finer details.”
Based on the current contracts between Team Gemini, contractors, architects and engineers, the company is in compliance and the project is under development according to schedule on everything that is within Team Gemini’s control.
Once completed in the summer of 2016, the COR3 is designed to recover over 250,000 tons of recyclables from the waste stream that is currently being sent to the Franklin County landfill. This will extend the life of the landfill as well as produce additional income for SWACO.
Team Gemini’s unique approach and best in class technologies will help all of this come true and will become a very proud accomplishment for everyone. In addition, this project is for the greater good and its all encompassing benefits will positively impact not just the community and its people, but also the environment and the economic potential of the region.
Team Gemini is overwhelmed by the support is has received by the community, local business, Government Officials and SWACO and joins all of them in the excitement in seeing this first phase of the facility operational in the near future.
