Discover how we provided ground improvement services for a food manufacturing facility in Wisconsin.
Why Was CNC Foundations Needed?
Our client was a food manufacturing facility in Wisconsin. The project required the ground be improved to allowable bearing pressure of 10,000 pounds per square foot (PSF) to support the building size and all the manufacturing equipment inside it. This project had a tight timeline and a highly structured 10-week build schedule for the construction. Additionally, the project came with difficult soil conditions and heavy oversight. They needed to navigate these challenges to complete the project on time and within budget.
REQUIREMENTS AND CHALLENGES
We used vibratory stone columns (VSCs) to provide heavy foundation support and ground improvement services. Our team installed the VSCs 30+ feet deep in the ground to accommodate the building’s size and weight. CNC Foundations worked through winter weather from December to February, and we used three crews and rigs to meet the project’s schedule.
SOLUTION AND RESULTS
We completed the project two and a half weeks ahead of schedule, partly because we arrived on site early. The general contractor was very happy with the results and reached out to compliment our onsite team and our project management processes.
