The Lowe’s project in Big Rapids

Owner: Lowes Inc
Engineer: Atwell Hicks
CM: FH Martin
Year Completed: 2004 

Lowe’s, Big Rapids: The Lowe’s project in Big Rapids did not start as planned. Record rain in the spring, coupled with a clay site, made for considerable delays. Once the site dried in early July (after needing much soil stabilization), Dean's crews worked 14+ hours, 6 days a week to complete the job on schedule. The project was a new building consisting of some 20+ cuts, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, water main, and 21AA building and parking lot base. Due to the loss of some wetlands on the project, Dean's also completed wetland mitigation in cooperation with the DEQ on a nearby farm.
