The scope of this project was to design and build the 225,000-square-foot headquarters for Alloc Inc., a laminate flooring manufacturing giant located in Racine Wisconsin. Soft ground needed to be consolidated to carry the weight of this enormous concrete building. Soft soil was compacted by “surcharging” the site. This is a simple but effective method of piling large quantities of dirt over the building area to compact the ground. Implementing our fast-track construction method, we were able to make-up for lost time spent on site preparation.
