The Complexities of Building Near Metra Tracks

During early site investigations, our team identified a 25 ft. wall leftover from a previously demolished building which neighbors the Metra tracks. Given its location within the site and the aggressive 17-month schedule, a complex removal process was not the best option. Working with engineering firms, we explored alternate earth retention systems, ultimately choosing a bracing system that would support the wall and minimize any schedule delays.
