Project Details

Keller Engineers was retained to provide engineering services necessary to demolish an abandoned facility and prepare the 2.1-acre site for future commercial development.  The project included an asbestos and lead-based paint report prepared by a sub-consultant. The structure had a concrete frame with concrete floor and roof framing. Concrete columns supported concrete beams and floor system.

Using an on-site mobile crushing operation, the concrete and brick materials from the building were used as fill.  The material was placed in the existing subgrade prior to the construction of a new facility.

We have worked with Keller Engineers for structural and civil engineering support on six projects over the past five years and have been very pleased with the results. Our projects tend to be complicated phased renovation/ addition projects calling for creativity in planning and construction.  I have been particularity pleased with their responsiveness to issues that arise during construction which is of particular importance to us and our clients.
