Goya Foods warehouse and corporate headquarters, USA 

The new warehouse and corporate headquarters (totalling 57,000 sq. metres) of Goya Foods required foundation soil improvement. Menard proposed a solution of installing more than 11,000 Controlled Modulus Columns (CMCs). At the site, construction had to contend with the presence of a former landfill and flooding following Hurricane Sandy. The proposed drilling programme confirmed a highly diverse soil profile still containing large amounts of waste. Following the flooding, the Menard teams brought in up to four CMC machines to work simultaneously. Ultimately the project was handed over a month ahead of schedule.

The Menard group develops foundation solutions based on ground improvement and reinforcement technologies. Its treatments eliminate the need for the deep foundations traditionally used to support surface structures.
