Project Spotlight: 11/16/16 HarborChase of Shorewood completed in Wisconsin on Geopier

Congratulations to Altius Construction for completing the new 4-story HarborChase senior living building in the Village of Shorewood, Wisconsin.  Altius partnered with Eppstein Uhan Architects and Pierce Engineers to design and construct this well-appointed facility.

Due to poor soils they elected to support the building using the Geopier GP3® system.  Ground Improvement Engineering designed the Geopier system and Foundation Service Corporation installed over 450 Geopier elements in two phases.

The following is a video link that describes the design collaboration and construction.  The poor soil and Geopier portion start near 2:18 into the video.
