The Wisconsin Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) honored two Beaver Dam 151 Business Park projects through its annual “Projects of Distinction” program: a new Beaver Dam Cold Storage facility and WDS Construction, Inc. headquarters facility.
MSA provided civil site design for both projects. WDS Construction, Inc., Beaver Dam, Wis., served as the contractor.
MSA Project Manager Mike Laue, PE, PLS, has played an integral role in the development of 151 Business Park since concept planning began in 2012. The City also worked with MSA for due diligence investigations, supporting documentation, and coordination of the effort to obtain accreditation in the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Certified Sites Program.
“Beaver Dam’s 151 Business Park project was one of the very first municipal business parks to successfully complete the rigorous Certified Site Program process,” explained Laue. “We’re proud to be a part of the Park’s continued development and success.”
The Cold Storage facility required an extensive analysis of semi-truck movements and tire tracking envelopes in and out of the facility. Additional analysis was performed to and from the various loading dock areas to ensure that various site features would not be damaged by these types of movements. Both projects were completed on time despite facing a considerable amount of earthwork during wet weather periods.
