Branch Civil developed an 18-acre parcel for IKEA’s 331,000-square-foot retail store/warehouse and a three-story parking garage. The 13-month aggressive schedule required more than 100,000 cubic yards of excavation and imported structural fill within three months of mobilization. Crews also performed several other improvements, including site utilities, storm drain, two large underground detention systems, retaining walls, site concrete, heavy-duty concrete pavement, asphalt pavement, pavement markings, signs, and right of way improvements.

Branch Civil substantially completed all work in March of 2019, and IKEA opened its doors to the public on April 10, 2019.
