Forsyth County
Cumming, Georgia

In order to reach the rapidly growing market in North Forsyth County, Wal-Mart envisioned a superstore on 40 acres near GA Highways 400 and 369. While the location of the site places the facility in the midst of the growth, the physical condition of the site made it technically challenging to develop. The construction manager chose Vertical Earth, not only for our production capabilities, but also for our ability to overcome technical challenges including groundwater, significant site retaining walls, concrete box culverts, lane extensions on public right-of-way, and extensive groundwater. In addition to excavating over 400,000 cubic yards of soil, the site also included technical aspects such as wick drains and settlement monitoring for the deep fills.
