Foundation Design and General Site Preparations, Norton Shores, Michigan

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.
