Manhard Consulting was retained to provide surveying, civil engineering and stormwater management services for a 197,000 SF industrial warehouse and office facility in Waukegan, Illinois.

The project was an expansion of an existing building which required thorough coordination between General Contractor, Architect and Engineer. The expansion also created some grading and building challenges to be at the same finished floor, connect existing parking lots and provide accessible access to new portion of the building.

Manhard successfully obtained permitting in less than four months from start of design.

A retaining wall was designed to maximize ADA accessibility. Manhard was success in improving existing drainage due to the challenge of matching the low elevation finished floor on the building to the north.
