Groundscapes Corporate Office

When Nick and Lori Heimann needed more space to accommodate their fast-growing landscaping business, they turned to Darland to do some preliminary budgeting. From financing to design to scheduling Darland helped the Heimann’s create a plan for their new space.

The more than 40,000-square-foot building features a showroom, warehouse, wash bay, service bay and administrative offices. The owners wanted a unique design in the showroom and office area and chose products like custom Armstrong decorative ceiling clouds, polished concrete floors and frameless glass wall systems. To ensure the building would meet their needs for years to come, they opted for upgrades like radiant heat in the warehouse and epoxy flooring in the service and wash bays.

In spring of 2019, just before construction was to begin, a ‘100-year-flood’ swept across the area and much of Valley was underwater. When the water receded, Darland worked alongside the geotechnical engineer to mitigate any future flooding issues. To account for the area’s high water table, the entire building was over-excavated, re-compacted and then a geo-grid was installed with a six inch layer of compacted crushed aggregate before the building pad was constructed. Darland worked to ensure the building would be protected from any future flooding.
