Project Specific Challenges:
The primary challenge of this project was addressing the unforeseeable subgrade conditions of the adjacent properties.

Tremendous efforts were made to ensure not only that the issues were addressed satisfactorily, but also to ensure the project schedule was maintained and the relationships with the adjacent property owners remained sound.
