First Aurora Commerce Center

First Aurora Commerce Center is a 138-acre industrial park centrally located between E-470 and I-70. Each building will have associated parking areas, driveways, truck courts, and detention ponds. The site’s subsurface conditions consisted of miscellaneous man-made fill overlaying native soils with medium expansion potential, which presented challenges for the development. Langan provided geotechnical peer review, design, and investigation services for multiple buildings within the campus. Our services included evaluating previous geotechnical recommendations from other firms and providing a more cost-effective solution, which included over-excavating and moisture conditioning the top six feet of in-situ soils. Langan’s technical excellence and responsiveness were key to delivering a safe and economically feasible project.
