The owners of Anytime Fitness in Cleveland, GA, were in a panic when they contacted Cantsink in February 2020. Relentless, heavy rains prompted flooding in the area, which caused a stream diversion culvert running next to the Anytime Fitness building to collapse.
What began as a small sinkhole quickly widened into a hole 150 feet by 40 feet with an active creek running through it. County officials ordered Anytime Fitness to close until the site could be stabilized. Cantsink dispatched a third-party engineer within two hours to help the company assess the site. Palmer Construction Consultants swiftly created a plan using Cantsink underpinning piers and brackets to properly and permanently stabilize the left side of the building.
Cantsink products are uniquely designed to cope cost-effectively with saturated ground. Installation is fast and efficient to deal with urgent situations like the one Anytime Fitness faced. With the plan in place and installation ready to proceed, the owners were allowed to reopen some portions of the building for business.
