Digging Deep on State Street

Spring and early summer 2015 saw Team Elmer's working in downtown Charlevoix, where an MDOT project called for a major project on a key city street. The project demanded the replacement of water and sewer lines for a three-block stretch of the city's State Street. While the work didn't put Team Elmer's on Bridge Street -- Charlevoix's busy main drag -- it did place is just one block over on another busy road. 

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 Bay Park: E-Coli Removal

Elmer’s got to work in late April, implementing a trio of three-step filtration systems that will greatly cut back on bacterial contamination and keep problems like “Raccoon-gate” from recurring in the future.

East Grand Rapids Public Works Complex: Auger Cast Piles

Our Team tested two auger cast piles prior to starting in order to verify the pile design was correct and could hold a 40-ton pile. We then inserted points into the ground and on the building, installing a laser level measurement apparatus to ensure building integrity during installation. Numerous overhead lines and underground utilities required additional patience, and every plane of the construction site demanded diligence.

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.

Elberta Road Construction

Team Elmer’s completed reconstruction of the .93-mile road, including a complex and meticulously timed, seven-staged process that had to ensure all businesses and homes remained open throughout.

Evanston, Illinois Sewer Rehabilitation

 Team Elmer’s battled tight working conditions twenty feet underground to line more than 120 feet of 80-year old sewer pipes and grout and coat 10 four-foot diameter manholes.

Gaylord Streetscape

 Working alongside a team of subcontractors, Team Elmer’s excavation crews took to a pair of Downtown Gaylord streets—Main Street and South Otsego Avenue—to remove deteriorating curb and gutter and begin work on the revitalization. The job involved everything from full reconstruction and restoration of the outdated storm sewer and gutter systems to placement of new sidewalks. Paving and concrete work—including decorative concrete—was necessary to construct new sidewalks in accordance with the Gaylord Streetscape plan, as were new ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

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.

Glen's Market Manistee

When Rohde Construction of Kentwood, Mich. was contracted to build the new Glen’s Market in Manistee, Mich., it discovered an expensive problem: how to move 65,000 yards of fill across a major state highway to raise the foundation of the construction site – without stopping traffic and breaking the bank.

Grand Marais Water Repairs

Team Elmer’s dug up the old system and installed the new—a network of heavy six and eight-inch pipes and water valves supplied by Etna Supply that, by the end of the project, spanned roughly 30,000 feet (six miles!) in length. We also connected 285 water meters to ensure fair and consistent billing for residents and businesses.

Grand Traverse Resort Parking Lot

The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is an iconic symbol of the Traverse City region, a splendid high rise, towering above an expansive golf course, and visible across the scenic Grand Traverse Bay. It’s also one of the most illustrious and luxurious getaways in northern Michigan, with a slew of shops, a restaurant with one of the finest views in town, and a five-star hotel being just a few of the attractions. Now, thanks to Team Elmer’s and their numerous partners, the resort has a five-star parking lot as well.
