Shelby Township, Michigan
The Shelby Macomb Medical Mall is located on a highly visible plot of land at the corner of a major intersection. Construction included a 160,000 square foot, three-story medical office building with a full basement on a footprint of only 40,000 square feet.
- Subsurface soils consist of soft blue clay, requiring a deep foundation system.
- G2 designed an auger cast foundation system consisting of 325 24-inch diameter augercast piles extending 20 feet below the basement elevation.
- Groundwater was encountered during excavation operations and a clay dike was recommended to seal off groundwater into the basement excavation.
