Halligan Electric, an electrical contractor operating in Michigan, has serviced the industry since its founding in 1927 and developed relationships with many companies over time, including Meijer, a major Midwest big-box store chain.As Meijer grew its business, Halligan Electric was often responsible for the site lighting of the new stores, gas stations, and distribution centers. The installation of the lights and concrete foundations on these projects was frequently rushed due to the grading and paving crews having a short window of time to get the lots ready for operation. Halligan Electric was in need of a better way to perform on-site lighting projects while staying on time and on budget, all while maintaining a satisfying aesthetic appeal.
Pole Base, a precast concrete foundational system, proved to be the perfect solution for their needs on these large parking lots for Meijer. With 18-inch, 24-inch, and 30-inch diameter options available, Pole Base was able to provide the exact sizes needed on these sites. In one instance, Pole Base was even able to provide a 12-foot-tall base to accommodate larger light poles and the poor soil conditions that were found on site.
Following the success of using precast foundations for the light poles on these projects, Halligan Electric has elected to use Pole Base on multiple other projects for Meijer across Michigan. These projects included a store in Alpena, a gas station in Roseville, a distribution center in Lansing, and most recently, a brand new store in Sault Ste. Marie.
“We started the project in Sault Ste. Marie [in] June of 2016,” said Travis Herriman of Halligan Electric. “We chose precast bases because of the consistent quality as well as the fact that Pole Base has a reliable time line. We are able to install on time and meet our customers compressed schedule.”
“We appreciate the controlled setting the precast bases use rather than the inconsistent elements of pouring bases in the field,” Herriman continued. “We believe the precast bases are a better product and appreciate having this alternative.”
Halligan Electric completed the site lighting on the Sault Ste. Marie project in 2016 and was able to complete the project on time while also providing outstanding service to Meijer. By using Pole Base precast foundations for their projects they were able to perform on tight deadlines while also achieving a high quality finished project.Looking for an easier-to-use foundational application for your next project?
