Foundation Design and General Site Preparations, Norton Shores, Michigan

By July 27, 2012Engineering

Lakeshore conducted the first geotechnical investigation for the property now occupied by the shopping centers, restaurants, and hotels west of a large mall, which at the time the property was merely blueberry fields. Lakeshore’s report provided recommendations for shallow foundation design, groundwater interference, and pre-construction subgrade preparation.

During a later phase, Lakeshore completed a site-specific investigation for the site of a national chain department store, which focused on foundation recommendation for their standard store construction.
