Services: Geotechnical, Drilling, Construction Materials Testing

Services for the new manufacturing facility include geotechnical, subsurface exploration, drilling and construction materials testing (CMT) for the new manufacturing, warehouse and office facility. The area is roughly 650 acres and was previously used for agricultural purposes and is a part of the Frank C. Pidgeon Industrial Park. The facility consists of an approximately 741,000 square feet manufacturing facility, a warehouse of approximately 495,000 sf, and office space of approximately 127,000 sf. Ancillary buildings, parking lots and drives are also planned.

A site specific study using Multi Channel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) and Refraction Microtremor (ReMi) methods was completed and provided an improved International Building Code (IBC) rating for the sight and therefore required a less conservative seismic design and construction requirements.
