    Enterprise Building

    Erhardt Construction began renovation of The Enterprise Building in June, 2009.  The project included renovation of the existing three-story building, as well as a three-story addition, all within a very tight timeframe - four months.
    A unique challenge to constructing the addition at the Enterprise Building, located along Seward Street on Grand Rapids’ west side, was its close proximity to an existing and active CSX railway. In order to minimize disruption to the rails, create a safe environment for construction workers and the train employees, and meet the owner’s critical deadlines, Erhardt worked with a deep foundations contractor in the design and installation of an earth retaining system that would allow the foundation of the new addition to be constructed within the footprint of the building, eliminating any disruption to operations and zero impact to the existing railways.
