Projects varied in scope from small building expansions to full retail buildings and lots, as well as the development of larger sites that were more geared toward cultivation.
Due to the varied nature of The Green Solution projects, each separate undertaking provided unique complications. Among these were drainage challenges requiring the design of large culvert crossings, requiring rerouting and development of infrastructure.
