Another Great Project in Pickens County Commerce Park

One of several clients Davis & Floyd has worked with at the Pickens County Commerce Park, era-contact USA has made its home in an impressive industrial building in the Park.

Alliance Pickens and Pickens County selected Davis & Floyd as their civil engineer for the Pickens County Commerce Park, a 310-acre Class A industrial park. While the team was developing the site, Pickens County was approached by era-contact who showed interest in one of the sites in the Park. Davis & Floyd addressed era-contact’s concerns that their building would not fit, providing schematic design to verify the entire 150,000 SF building program could be developed on the subject parcel.

The project team provided topographic survey and boundary survey, and geotechnical exploration to verify suitability of soils and location of rock to support mass grading operation. Additionally, Davis & Floyd closely coordinated project permitting with local authority to expedite permit review process, developed early site package to expedite construction while building design was being programmed and finalized, worked with industry representative and architectural firm to develop site plans related to the building design, and provided construction material testing services to check compaction met project specifications.

Davis & Floyd was able to complete all phases of the project construction on time and under budget, and provide era-contact USA with a first-class facility.
