Impacting the communities where we work.
One thing that was extremely important to the school district and the community was the use of local subcontractors and vendors. Despite the short timeframe, Carroll Daniel made a concerted effort to reach out to local subs and ensure maximum coverage and participation. We succeeded in achieving 45 percent local subcontractor participation on the project, which is a point of pride for the district in promoting future E-SPLOST projects
On Solid Ground
Creative solutions to unsuitable soils.
During sitework, it was discovered that a large portion of the building footprint was situated over unsuitable/wet soils up to 15 feet below grade. This was especially concerning for the school district, since they had had a previous school that sank and required lifting. The initial suggestion to overcome this was the use of aggregate piers under the building foundations. Carroll Daniel was able to save the Owner money by excavating and replacing the unsuitable material while chemically drying and recompacting the wet material.
The Carroll Daniel team worked tirelessly to help come up with creative solutions and alternatives to bring the project in on budget without losing any square footage or quality of design.
