  • Grading work for this 11 acre site
  • Driven pipe pile deep foundations for a new building
  • Created the new pond at the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry
  • Installed a new storm water drainage system as well as the infrastructure components of a water reuse system.
  • Provided a low vibration design-build deep foundation solution to support Katharina Fritsch’s Hahn/Cock and Theaster Gate’s Black Vessel for a Saint.
