The Korean United Methodist Church in Troy, MI, discovered they needed more space to worship and gather together for their growing church community. They turned to Cunningham-Limp Development Company in early January 2016 to assist them in conceptualizing a new addition for their church.
Korean United Methodist Church
The Korean United Methodist Church constructed a single-story, steel-framed slab-on-grade addition to its existing facility. It was also necessary to construct a new parking area, provide associated utilities and create a 4-1/2 foot deep detention pond. By the end of the summer of 2016, it was completed.

Special Inspections and Materials Testing
Challenges / Solutions
As on many of Cunningham-Limp Development Company projects, G2 Consulting Group provided the geotechnical investigation prior to construction and construction engineering services during construction. These services included: observing earthwork operations and utility installation; performing foundation inspection and concrete inspection for foundations, flatwork and site concrete; performing structural steel evaluation; and observing bituminous concrete and Portland cement concrete pavement construction.
G2 determined and evaluated the general subsurface conditions at the site and developed related foundation recommendations for support of the proposed structure. G2 also recommended new pavement design and provided construction considerations for the new development.
How did we accomplish “Smart. Results. Fast”?
Significant geotechnical investigation was performed in a short period of time. G2 provided preliminary design recommendations shortly after completion of the field report which allowed the construction team to move forward quickly with the project. During construction, G2 observed construction activities and advised the contractor accordingly to conform with project specifications.
