St. Andrews Church Expansion

SILD Field Notes

This is a current project SILD is the site contractor for a local general contractor. This project is an expansion of an existing church in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. Work consists of removing existing trees, utilizing arborists and large excavators, to safely remove the trees without damaging the surrounding buildings and houses. All the existing storm drainage on the property had to be removed and replaced, while maintaining a functional construction site. Additional storm drain and outfall were installed to provide additional drainage. The church addition site had to be prepared by removing all unstructured soils and replacing with structural fill material. Existing water and sewer services relocated, while maintaining services to existing buildings.
