Ground engineering specialist Nicholson Construction and ground improvement business Menard have jointly secured a contract for work on a biodigester project in the US.
The City of Grand Rapids Water Resource Recovery Facility calls for construction of three large diameter tanks on a site with challenging ground conditions.
The site also requires up to 5m of fill to create a level platform for construction.
Menard will design and build controlled modulus column rigid inclusions to support a load transfer platform, while Nicholson will undertake drill and grouting work to fill voids in the underlying bedrock.
“It’s always great to work with our sister companies on these large-scale projects,” said Nicholson Construction vice president central region Dan Thome. “Being part of the same larger company allows us to share resources and ideas to come up with the best value for our clients.”
Menard and Nicholson have been contracted to undertake the ground engineering work by main contractor Christman Company.
