Earth Shelter Project Michigan

Earth sheltering is the architectural practice of using earth against building walls for external thermal mass, to reduce heat loss, and to easily maintain a steady indoor air temperature.


East Jordan: Water & Sewer Improvement

Team Elmer’s might encounter unforeseen obstacles when completing a project, but we never get bogged down. Such was the case in East Jordan, where we broke up the soil – and the project into two parts.


General Mills Yoplait Production Facility: Auger Cast Piles

The ground-breaking expansion project launched on the heels of an announcement from General Mills that the company had signed agreements with partner companies to acquire a 51 percent controlling interest in the Yoplait brand and a 50 percent interest in a related company that holds the worldwide Yoplait brands of products for approximately $1.1 trillion.


Indiana County Line Landfill

Republic Waste had a short timeline and a tall order to fill – constructing a new seven-acre landfill cell with 193,550 cubic yards of earth excavation. Team Elmer’s answered the challenge, travelling all the way to Indiana, ensuring perfect conditions were met in creating an addition to the Hoosier State’s County Line Landfill.


Kohler: The Most Challenging Driveway

Begin with the fact that the proposed driveway was to be 1,200 feet long -- with a 124 foot rise in elevation leading to the home (with a fantastic view of Grand Traverse Bay!) Next, consider that time, money, and regulations were all limited. But no problem for our dynamic duo of Eric Sanborn and Jack Morris!


Manistee Cedar Street Sewer Project

Previously, the city’s sanitary sewer and the storm sewer were two parts of one system. Both would flow to the Manistee Waste Water Treatment Facility for treatment, and additional storm sewer volume being treated would cost the taxpayers money. The problem was during a significant storm event, the treatment facility would be over capacity and overflow volumes would release both storm water and sanitary sewer water directly into the Manistee River.


Marion: First Street Recontrsuction

Have you ever seen an alligator in Marion, Michigan? When water sits upon a roadbed for a prolonged period of time causing deterioration and cracking, in the hallways at Team Elmer’s, it’s referred to as “alligatoring.”


Michigan State University Library: Auger Cast Piles

The Main Library at Michigan State University serves as the center for the campus community’s knowledge base, on-campus-research, and quiet study. However, it houses many aging items that require temperature and humidity control for their preservation. This is accomplished using devices called steam absorption chillers, which create chilled water for the building's air-conditioning system.


Sara Lee Concrete Floor Replacement

Sara Lee, known for their pies and baked goods, has a bakery plant located in Traverse City. When the factory needed a new recipe for their floors, Team Elmer’s provided the main ingredients: floor cutting with fugitive dust control and ready mix concrete.
