The Historic Grosse Pointe War Memorial’s new addition was a unique and special project to be a part of. The expansion consisted of site demolition, basement excavation/backfill, earthwork, removal and installation of new storm sewers, new sanitary lead, and water main. Being a lakefront property presented a few challenges, such as installing storm sewer below lake level and unearthing a 100-year-old seawall conflicting with the new basement and storm sewer.
