Recently, Summit was chosen to help the Chatham County School District shape its community by building a 38,000-square-foot Central Services Building. This project will spur collaboration among education leaders, teachers, and parents to provide the best education possible for the children of Chatham County. Our children are the future, and Chatham County is working to improve its communities by providing them with a sound education.
We serve as this project’s Construction Materials and Special Inspections team, partnering with great industry allies such as CRA Architects, LHC Structural Engineers, and T.A. Loving Company. This project will take twelve months to complete.
As a part of the team, we have overcome the challenge of low-bearing and unsuitable soil conditions across the site by proactively developing a site-specific undercut plan for the building pad and other structural areas. Doing so before the start of grading operations has allowed the project team to review all information and agree to a path forward for addressing the poor soil areas in parallel with the broader site grading activities, minimizing project delays and costly downtime for the construction team.
