The General Motors’ Livonia site once housed fourteen heavy manufacturing buildings that totaled 2.1 million SF on 116 acres. This brownfield site was fraught with many disadvantages due to remnants left behind from its previous use. The demolition of the former structures had left many unknown soil and ground conditions buried below the surface. In addition to the environmental challenges, the client had an aggressive nine-month construction schedule. The City of Livonia streamlined the permit process to assist in the scheduling process. The completed project and its program put the previously contaminated site back into productive use.
