What kind of buildings can we have on landfills?

    Any kind of building can be built on a landfill (Oregon City, OR built a whole shopping center including a Home Depot on top of a landfill!), but many factors must be considered when undergoing construction on a landfill site.  These included but are not limited to air monitoring + landfill gas mitigation systems, increased cost for maintenance, and obviously foundational support and increased peril for construction workers.


    Here’s an awesome slideshow-style breakdown:  http://www.swanaoregon.org/Docs/Symposium%202008/Session%204/Dan%20Venchiarutti%20Building%20on%20Landfills.pdf
